      You need to check for background apps like Facebook and other apps which uses internet connectivity after some interval of time and set them to not to do so.

      I think that the sole problem is the firmware of your phone.If your phone is under warranty then take it to Nokia care and tell them to reinstall previous version of firmware or else wait for another update.

      Usually,it takes very less time to format.Try removing your memory card and formatting it again.

    I have recently installed NetworkAcc on my C3-00. It worked fine on 1st run.
    After that when I want to access the folder it is stored, the phone switches off. Now when I turn off phone, I get to the date screen, but unable to select any keys(All keys work fine). the phone screen goes dark. I have tried several on/off boots but still problem persist.

    Please help me dead boot device,flash firmware and/or upgrade/reinstall the firmware.

          Connect your phone to PC and scan the memory card of it for viruses.If still it doesn't solves your problem then make a backup of your data and format the memory card of your phone in the phone itself so as to avoid any compatibility issues.

          If anything doesn't works then try updating your firmware of your phone using Nokia suite -

      You can try factory reset and I think that it must restore to previous version.Although I haven't tried it.

    • Jay.0
      January 21, 2012 at 6:47 am

      Try 12345 which is the default code.

      It's not possible without the security code.

      Contact nokia care, for both the issues. security code and the problem that you have.

      Tell them to backup your data, and then hard reset.
      I think that's what they will do.

    guys, you should either ask a new question, to get more attention.

    or visit nearest nokia care.

    if your keys are not working, there can be something loading in the
    background, it is normal if this happens when you start the phone.

        You need to hard reset the your nokia c3..
        contact Nokia care.
        They will do it for you.

        (There is a keypad combination to hard reset, but never worked for me.
        and as it is locked the normal process of hard reset can't be performed.)

    hi someone changed my c-3 nokia security code, and i tried to find the master code, and tried a million codes and i dont know what to do. i cant talk to the company i bought it from until monday, and i need to use my phone. i have tried EVERYTHING! any suggestions?

    • Jay
      November 24, 2011 at 2:51 am

      right now, i don't know it.
      12345 is the default.
      but you said someone changed your code !?
      that person must be knowing your old code, without the old code , it cant be changed.

      i will update you if i find something.
      master code failed when i tried.
      may be it is for old models only/
      there was a trick of resetting it back to 12345, but the link is removed from all the pages.

      so wait till Monday, or try to find the person who reset the code.

    1. are you sure you have set the options to store data on memory card and not phone memory?

    check phone memory.

    sometimes it takes time to appear the photos in the album
    and you have refresh/update music library to see newly added songs.

    still you should see them on memory card,
    to make sure, connect memory card to pc using usb mass storage mode and check if the files are on card or not.

      sorry for late reply, I am human after all :)
      if you want to try my guesses, you can :

      1.delete the contact from you got message. or save that number as another name. i doubt all this unable to delete is because of the duplicate entry or somthing about contacts.

      2.insert another sim and send some messages and then insert your sim again. because sometimes it clears inbox.

      3. try to use delete all message from inbox. you will lose all your messages.

      4. did you perform hard reset ?
      dial *#7370# backup every thing as it will clear your entire phone memory.

      can you please ask a new question ? i will continue solving it there, and will reply you here until the question is published.

      or just let the message stay, may be one day it will get bored and delete itself :)

    Consider factory reset or firmware upgrade as the last option.
    first try this :

    if an entry in dialed numbers is showing invalid selection.

    dial the number more than 5 times, then try to delete.
    or edit/delete the contact and repeat the same process,
    as it clears call time, but the entry is still there, and last 5 calls are registered from one contact.
    this should enable the delete option.

    if the entry is not deleted, it may stop the logging as new numbers can't replace this entry.

      November 8, 2011 at 9:10 pm

      First of all remove the sim card and insert it back after some time.
      and insert SIM after some time.
      or you can insert another sim and then again insert your sim.
      this will clear all the logs.

      If this does not work, read further :
      this one is a bug in nokia c3, and you are not the only one with this problem.some phones have stopped logging calls also.

      1.set the date and time to auto update and resart the phone and check.
      2. dial :*#7780#

      if  1st 2 options does not work, update your firmware, if your phpne is in warranty,
      goto nokia care.
      or update it yourself using pc suite.

      But I think there should be something that will simply solve the problem, which numbers stays when you delete all the numbers? there should be a reason why these entries are still there.

    then switch on the phone.
    it will restart and nokia logo will appear.
    check, your cell is formatted.
