My phone ignores the sequence. It was set up as a child phone, and there’s no “reset phone” button in the about menu. It in fact doesn’t even have the about menu. And trying to reset it using buttons, I get exclamation mark, and once I push the Volume Up button, it starts to boot normally and ignores the rest.

It's not working, I repeated the process multiple times and I keep getting the same outcome, it just goes to the Nokia screen, and boots up the same
