Haven’t we had enough of viruses,trojans and worms on our desktops and laptops that now these villains make an entry into our mobile phone world also? What a pain! Well I never thought a mobile phone virus could be SO annoying! This being my first experience I was kind of caught off guard.
I do not own a high end phone or anything. It is a basic nokia phone with just bluetooth facility. Now who doesn’t dream of a fancy theme apart from the dull n drab default themes? So did I… Sadly the themes I downloaded were infected. Not only did these themes not work properly they also infected my phone! Within a matter of no time the analog clock display in the standard theme disappeared, the whole phone became VERY slow,some buttons stopped working… What a horror!
As always when there are problems and I dont know the answer, I close my eyes and (no not turn to god) I google!!! As usual the omniscient Google gave me the solution! God bless Google!
For those of you who are having the same problem here is the solution-format your phone
Caution: Do this ONLY when your phone battery is full else you are in for more trouble.
To format your phone, press *#7370#, then enter the lock code, which is the security code of the phone. After you format your phone it will automatically restart. You will not lose any data but all the settings will be set to the initial factory settings. After this your phone will work like a beauty!
Our problems are what we make of them! If we think too much about them and give them undue importance, we are inviting trouble! There is this really interesting story my friend Anirudh Goel has on his blog which I would recommend as a MUST read, it is here.
It is amazing to see that the most complex lessons are learnt through the easiest examples.Absolutely amazing! So next time when we feel upset or frustrated lets remember to put the glass down! 🙂
