    Deleting All Data From My Nokia N8?

    Hi folks,

    Can someone please tell me how I can delete all data from my N8 as i'm just about to sell it.

    I need to delete everything - the usual music, images etc but also all internet history, any cookies etc that might be on the phone. I don't want someone to get their new (secondhand) phone and find all sorts of dodgy stuff on it that I may have come across over the last year and a half.

    Thanks very much in advance.

    And also format the mass memory, since the hard reset does not touch it.

    In your phone go to Files, press and hold for a while on E:Mass memory. You´ll see Format, touch it and that´s all.
