I just found that my WP7.8 Lumia 710 doesn't open in the SETTING/APPLICATIONS the PHONE option. I have no idea what could be the problem. I have the sim inserted well, I have great signal strengh, I can make calls, etc, but that menu doesn't open at all. I tried restarting, changing the inserted SIM, but nothing helped.
Do you have any idea what causes the problem and how could I solve it?
Thank you very much ideed.

Are you sure that this will solve the problem? (Isn't it possible, that the network provider disabled the menu?) Is it sure that this problem is so serious that I must hard reset the device? How many times is it allowed to use the same activation key on my device?
Zune says it has a restore point...Do you think it would help? I think after restoring the device I will need to update it again :((

EDIT: Hmm.. I should have checked the devices earlier, rather than assuming it worked. You are absolutely correct, this doesn't open on ANY of the devices I have access to. I've tried unbranded/unlocked Titan, and Radar, and a O2 branded/locked Mozart. All 3 have this issue, and just to make sure I hard reset my Titan, and found it doesn't remedy the issue.
EDIT 2: Hard reset does work, read post further down.

EDIT: I tried a hard reset again, and weirdly my Titan now works on the menu. I also did the same for the other devices... ugh, lots of reinstalling and they're too now working.
A hard reset will work, but you may need to do 2x for some unknown reason.

I had that happen on one of my Titans. I am pretty sure it was on the one I currently have. I did a hard reset after trying to figure out what could be causing the issue, and now that menu works again. I have also just confirmed that it works on my 7.8 updated Titan still.

How many times can I use it?
Note: You'll need to reinstall all your applications, including purchased ones. Press "Buy" and continue, and during the process your device will say you've already purchased, and ask if would like to reinstall.
