How to Hard Reset Nokia WPs (Three Finger Restart)

| November 8, 2011 | 1 Reply

Anyone who had used one of the older Nokias (5800, N97 + Mini version) and to a thankfully lesser extent even some of the newer S^3 devices knows that every now and then you end up with no other choice but to Hard Reset your mobile. Hard Resetting your mobile usually involves wiping most data off it; but clears it of almost all software problems, (best solution short of reflashing the FW).

NokiaPort.De tweeted a official looking howto guide simply enough all you have to do is press down the Power+Volume+Camera until the phone vibrates Then release the power button but keep the volume and camera pressed down for another 5 seconds and presto your WP is as good as new. (hopefully we wont have to use this)

Update (Jay): There is a reset function in settings that completely wipes the phone too.
