Nokia 9500 out of memory


My Nokia 9500 yesterday suddenly started complaining about being out of memory. I could not do anything. Even deleting things was impossible “as there was not enough memory”. After rebooting numerous times, and deleting some few things here and there, I could at least run the software for “Memory”. It said 78MByte “Other”. So, there must be some memory leak or something. I have no idea.

Factory reset was the only thing to do. Remove the battery, have the phone open, and insert it again. When you see the Nokia logo, press Ctr-Shift-F, and say “Yes” to reformatting the device. I was happy I managed to hack MacOSX some months ago so sync with iSync works.
