If there’s something you’re not sure about with your Nokia E7 – if somebody has changed one of the settings and you don’t know how to get it back, for example, or you’ve installed something you want to get rid of, one way is to reset the phone back to factory settings. . You’ll have to install all your apps again, but it’s likely to get rid of any issues.
If you’re having trouble with your Nokia E7 – perhaps you’ve installed the latest firmware and it doesn’t agree with one of your apps, for instance – and want to take a step back, it’s worth considering a software reset.
It’s possible to change all the settings back to how they were when your Nokia E7 rolled out of the factory. Before you do this, you should back up all of your files, photographs, contact details and anything else of importance – as the phone will be wiped completely clean.
Once all your files and details are copied safely onto your laptop or computer, click on Menu and then Settings. Then click on Phone and Phone Management.
From here, click Factory Settings. There are two options – Restore and Delete Data and Restore. Restore will turn all your settings back to how they were originally – it’s worth trying this option first just in case, but if you still have problems it’s worth deleting data as well. Make sure your phone is fully charged or plugged in, as you don’t want the handset to turn off halfway through the reset.
Once you’ve started the reset, the phone will restart and it’s a simple case of waiting for your Nokia E7 to do its stuff. It takes quite a long time, and you won’t be able to use the phone at all while it’s resetting. As said above – make sure you back up all your files before starting the reset.
