Tips for Nokia N73

Tips and tricks for Nokia N73 and Nokia NSeries:

Check IMEI  (International Mobile Equipment Identify):


Important warning:
Before resetting/formatting your phone you should back up all of your data. Make sure your battery is fully charged, otherwise your phone could become useless. I'm not responsible for any damage you could do to your phone

Default security code to reset: 12345

Full Reset (Delete phone memory and contacts!):

*#7370# then type YES

Soft Reset:

*#7780#, then type YES

Phone format:

Turn phone off then turn it on pressing on the * 3 and Call keys. Useful when it freezes

Delete emails, GPRS, MMS (Only for Symbian series):


*#delset#. (Delete operator data, it is not debranding yet).

Service menu:

*#92702689# – Before it was *#92772689#. It verifies fabrication date, last service technic date and byuing date.

Set EFR ON/OFF(Enhanced Full Rate):

*#3370*. If ON, reception will be improved, but batery life will shortened.

Set HRC ON/OFF (Half Rate Clarity):

*#4270*. It lowers reception, but improves battery life.

Software version:


Show MAC address, or hardware address for the Bluetooth

Fixing my Peugeot 306 window

Well, the mechanism that opens or close the window didn't work.
So, I've opened the door and dissasembled the connection between the door and the car, I unplugged the wires as you can see here:

The contacts were green (dirty) and the rubber cover broken

Well, I've cleand everything up with an electronic cleaner spray, then repaired the gap with silicone.
And yes! it worked!
I've saved at least 200 euros: lol
