Reset Nokia E71

Are you having weird problems with your Nokia E71 that you didn’t have when you first got it? Maybe it is time to reset your phone. There are two ways of resetting, a soft and a hard reset. You should always backup your phone, before resetting it.

Soft reset

A soft reset only reboots your phone, but leaves all messages, contacts, calls, applications, themes and so on. Follow the following steps to perform a soft reset:

  1. Type *#7780# from the standby screen
  2. Enter the security code (default 12345)
  3. Confirm the soft reset

Hard reset

When performing a hard reset, your phone gets restored to its factory default settings. You will loose all your messages, contacts, calls, applications, themes and so on. Follow this steps to perform a hard reset:

  1. Type *#7370# from the standby screen
  2. Enter the security code (default 12345)
  3. Confirm the hard reset

I hope this helps solve your weird problems with your Nokia E71. It always helps me to boost my Nokia E71…

Nokia E71, XS4ALL and SIP

My Internet provider, XS4ALL, offers me the possibility to use a free SIP account. This is especially useful when travelling abroad. I can call to the Netherlands with the SIP accounts. This saves me a lot of money compared to calling with my regular cell phone.

I often hard reset my phone, so all settings will be gone. Sometimes I forget to backup my phone first before giving it a hard reset. After resetting the phone to its factory default settings, I always struggle with configuring the SIP account again. So here is the manual……finally:

  1. Go to Menu –> Tools –> Settings –> Connection –> SIP Setting;
  2. Create a new account
  3. Profile name: XS4ALL
  4. Service Profile: IETF
  5. Default Access Point: none (I choose the correct access point manually)
  6. Public name: <SIP phone number>@sip.xs4all.nl
  7. Use compression: No
  8. Registration: When needed
  9. Use security: No
  10. Proxy Server
  • Proxy server address: sip.xs4all.nl
  • Realm: sip.xs4all.nl
  • User name: <SIP phone number>
  • Password: <password>
  • Allow loose routing: Yes
  • Transport type: Auto
  • Port: 5060
    1. Registrar server
  • Registrar server address: sip.xs4all.nl
  • Realm: sip.xs4all.nl
  • User name: <SIP phone number>
  • Password: <password>
  • Transport type: Auto
  • Port: 5060
    1. Next go to Menu –> Tools –> Settings –> Connection –> Internet telephone
    2. Create a new profile
    3. Name: XS4ALL
    4. SIP profiles: XS4ALL

    Now you have, besides making a voice or video call, the opportunity to make an Internet call.
