What's all this "sir" stuff? drop that.
It's fine if you go to "about" in settings and revert back to factory settings by resetting your phone. It will not brick your phone. If by chance such a thing happens, you can get a software by nokia (recently released) on your computer specifically for the purpose of fixing a bricked phone.

Yeah i did...its ok now. I did the "Settings" method coz i didnt know how to do the buttons combination, im not a pro on this, im only new to this.... ok...sorry...sir :smile:

The users who reset their phone with that option reported their phone to be stuck at spinning gears as opposed to the users who reset it by hardware keys combination. I know it sounds crazy but that's the way it is.

Ok, yeah...i know how a lot of them are complaining they got bricked becoz of doing the "settings>about" method, but me i dont know how to do the button combination so, i dont have any other option thank to go to settings and click reset phone. Thanks for encouraging me tho. :) salute!

1. Make sure the charger is disconnected, and switch the phone off.
2. Press and hold the volume down key, and connect the charger. An exclamation mark (!) is shown on the screen.
3. Press the keys in the following order: volume up, volume down, power, and volume down. Your phone resets, and boots up. This may take several minutes.

PS: Make a backup before doing this as it erases all content on your phone and restores the factory settings.

I have a question for you and Gaurav. I already posted a question about this in Bing forums but I have no answers. How do you turn off safe search in Bing on the phone.? I already tried the settings they dont work. Even tried the settings via PC.
If anyone wants to buy Lumia 720, its available for Rs 14.3k on ShopClues.com

Although you can turn safe search off but it doesn't really work the way you want it to as it is based on region. What you can do is use internet explorer instead and set your default search engine to google.

I use IE and Google search as my default search engine. Bing results are based on regions so that doesn't help a lot even with Safe Search turned off.

I found a solution. Go to internet explorer, tap the three dots go to setting, advance setting change cookies from websites and apps if its on, block all to block some if that doesn't work select accept all. Working for me.
