The popularity of Symbian OS cell phones is the reason for rise in number of Viruses written targeting Symbian.

One of the recent and most common virus is the Commwarrior virus. When your cell phone is infected by the Commwarrior virus, you’ll see a message – ‘Infected by Commwarrior‘ around the operator logo on the main screen of your cell phone / mobile phone.

Commwarrior is a bit of an annoying virus, as it starts shutting down and restarting your phone automatically. It also spreads itself by send a copy of the virus to your friends and family listed in your phonebook, as a message. When they open the message, their phone too will be infected by Commwarrior, just the way your phone was, when you opened the Commwrrior virus message.

There is no need to panic as you can remove this virus yourself without having to go to a mobile phone repair shop.

Here’s how you can remove, clear and clean the commwarrior virus from your Nokia cell phone :

1> Remove the memory card from your cell phone and keep it in a clean and safe place.
2> Turn on your cell phone and key in #7370#
3> Security code prompt comes up, if you have set a security key, then key it in, else key in the default security key which is 12345.

This step is actually hard resetting your mobile phone. Which means that you might lose all data if you have not backed it up and moved it on to the memory card. Hence it is very important that you remove the memory card before performing this process.

Chances are that your memory card may also be infected by the virus. To remove the virus from memory card, put it on a card reader, connect it to your PC, either run one of the latest anti-virus software on it or format it if the anti-virus fails to remove the virus (You’ll end up losing the data here), which should clean it up.

Put the memory card back in your cell phone, restart the cell phone, which is now clean of the Commwarrior virus.

  30. @Gautam
    it’s ok! blame it on a typo^^ i’d just like to add…before u try this set a password for ur mmc if u haven’t set up one already. i had removed the password, n after i put the mmc in, it kept on asking for a password.
    yup, u cant access c drive…and as far as i know mmcs dont come with a factory password. gautam, any idea on how to get around this without using an external software? thanks

  31. @daisy ababa
    you just need to remove your memory card, not your SIM card. i’ve noticed many people don’t put the slot back properly when they remove the MMC in 6600. make sure that you put the slot back properly after you remove your mmc, ensure that your sim card is in the slot. let me know if it worked out. the service command is for resetting ur phone to their original setting. back up ur data. i’ve been using 6600 since 2004, it’s a good, sturdy piece and even after all these years i still hang on to it^^
    oh, and the command isn’t #7073# it is *#7073#.

  32. Hie i can’t make any call my phone goes off and on and automatically go to commwarrior’s website.Help me to remove commwarrior from my N70 Nokia.Please help.

  33. Good morning, after I remove my memory card from my cellphone, when I turn it on….. it will comes up with a message ” INSERT SIM CARD”, how will I key in the #7370#? If I will key in hardly the #7370#, the message will be ” Emergency calls only!”
