    It seems you've tried the vol down vol up etc trick, to no avail. Can you go to your local Nokia Care station and see if they can reflash your phone for you?

    While the gears are spinning, do a soft reset - Just push volume down and power button until phone vibrates. It will probably go back to the spinning gears but should only be for about 5 minutes and then back to home screen.

    Immediately after the phone vibrates, release the power button and press the volume button up. You should get a logo with a lightning bolt. Let go of all buttons and try the soft reset from there.
