    N95 8Gb - "Phone start up failed, contact retailer"

    I decided to change product code and upgrade my firmware of N95 8Gb handset earlier on.

    Previous to the firmware update, I backed up my handset via PC Suite - the update went fine until I did a restore after the firmware update to get my contacts, messages etc. back.

    Now after entering the PIN , all it says is "Phone start up failed, contact retailer"

    What have I done wrong? Any chance I can sort this myself or do I have to give it to a repair centre?

    Thats right, following a Firmware upgrade, its recommended to untick settings (If you have the latest version of PC Suite).

    i never do backups. i sync my contacts to ms office and copy all my media files and reinstall everything as if i just got a new phone. i even format the memory card or mass storage.

    Then take it to your nearest Nokia repair centre.
