Nokia 6230i bricked?

It seems my Nokia 6230i is stuck in some sort of weird reset cycle. It starts up until I get to the screen where I need to set the time, and then the screen turns black. Sometimes it comes back up, but mostly the phone either restarts again or turns itself off. I’ve been having a love-hate relationship with this phone ever since I got it, and it appears that besides the poor usability, the crappy camera and the dito screen its unable to withstand a year and a half of daily use…

Anyone know how of any tricks to get it working again?

  1. It really seems like you have been having particularly bad luck with this phone. I used mine intensively for over a year and love it. Shame.

  2. Well, it seems to have revived itself once I got back to the Netherlands. I read somewhere on the internet that the phone ca lock up after receiving either faulty or one-too-many operator settings. Apparently being constantly ping-ponged between Greek operators Wind and Cosmote made things go haywire….

    Anyway, I’m back. Now if only someone would call me…
