Nokia Asha 200 is one of the four models of the Asha line, beside the Asha 202, Asha 203 and Asha 302. Is the perfect phone for those who want to take advantage of all the basic features and to spend a small amount of money. If your phone becomes unresponsive, moves slowly or you encounter different errors, you don’t have to buy another phone, just hard reset the Asha 200 to factory software.

There are different ways to restore the Nokia Asha 200 to factory settings, using a factory settings code or without one. The firs one implies using the button keys to refresh the software, a method which restores the .inn files from the ROM, but does not erase data or application from the third party.Also, you can factory reset your phone by adding a format code, which will restore your phone to its original settings in 5-10 minutes.

Released in the December of 2011, the Asha 200 is a dual sim phone, which comes with a QWERTY keyboard perfect for quick and easy texting.  Also, this phone is equipped with a 1 GHz processor and a two megapixel camera, featuring in-built Nokia browser. The mobile operating system is Nokia S40, and is closely related to Nokia X2-01.

How to restore the Nokia Asha 200

The basic method, also known as soft reset, restores the .ini files from the ROM, without erasing data or applications from a third party. You have to enter the factory resetting code *# 7780 using the hardware keys, and then press dial. Afterwards, your phone will be restored, without losing any personal data.

Another way is to  bring your phone to its original settings, but in this case it’s important to back up your data, because the process erases all data, including the memory card. This sequence restores the original operating system right from the foundation. The steps are as follows:

  1. Enter the following code and then press Dial: *# 7370.
  2. Now the phone should request the security code which is by default 12345.
  3. Wait until the phone reboots.


Last but not least, you can try the classic approach:

  1. End all calls and connection, then select Menu.
  2. Then select Settings and Restore Factory Settings.
  3. Now chose only Settings and enter the reset code: 12345.

      I’m sorry, but there isn’t any magic reset button that you can press and the phone would restart. This kind of method has yet to be implemented by Nokia, on this model. Most likely, you must take it to a GSM service to re-soft it.

      Unless you’ve done a back-up first, there’s nothing else that you can do.
