So this is SUPPOSED to do what ? Your circuit is certainly interesting.
You want a maximum output voltage of ......
You want a maximum output current of......

What are you charging ?

Lets start with this, rather than assuming you need the resistance.

i want current of 800mA and an output voltage of around 6.7v

Whatever you are charging will only take the current it needs, so so long as you can supply at least 800mA you will be fine.

Again, what are you charging ? Is it your own battery, or is it a device containing a battery.

If its IN your phone, you don't have to worry, make a charger with the right output voltage and the current will look after itself.,

i hav made sum changes in the circuit and now i am getting current of 1.2A
but current requirement of my cellfone is 800mA.....
Will it be safe to use it or it will harm my cellphone..........?????

Your supply can PROVIDE up to 1.2 A, it won't NEED 1.2 A to chrage your phone, if you have the right voltage.

that's what i m saying!!!
My original nokia charger gives o@/p current of 800mA
so sumhow i need to reduce the current!!!
Any idea abt how to do that????

NO. You do NOT need to reduce the current, the PHONE will do that for you.

Check your charging voltage from the phone's own data.

from where shall i get my phone's charging data??can u plz search and tell me about that??/
my cell is nokia c6-00
i attatched the one which i made,there came a notification of charging,but then again the notification came to 'unplug the powersupply'which meanz that the cell is not charging!!!!
wat shall i do now????

I think you need FIVE volts, not 6.7.

its written as 5 volts but i measured my charger voltage with a multimeter,it was reading as 6.7v

Check it against a real charger and see what happens.

What happens when you use a real charger. Lets work out if the phone is damaged, or there is something wrong with the charger. What happens to the voltage AT the phone, when its plugged in ?

What circuit are you using now ?

when i use a real charger my phone charges to full in around 45 min

the same circuit but in placce of 12ohm resistor i replaced it by sum other resistance in parallel so as to reduce the resistance bcoz i neede a current of 800ma

As I keep saying, forget the current limiting resistor, it isn't helping, because it drops the input voltage too much.

You said:
i have a cicuit which has resistance of 75 ohm (approx.)
but i want it to be 12 ohm as i am using a 9v battery and i want the current to be around 800mA.


Why?
You're talking about wasting energy as heat in resistors; for what purpose?

Why have you used the tags CELLPHONE, CHARGER without saying anything else about about those?

i am trying to make a portable charger!!!
so if the current will be more it wud surely damage my cell fone!!!
so for safety reasons i hav added the reisistances
i hav used ic 7805,lm317,a12kohm pot etc..
i am just a beginner !!!
so guyz plz help!!!!

If your circuit is 75 Ohm now, the max current would be 120mA.
Adding resistors isn't going to put more current in the phone.
Can you show us the circuit in some way?

the star mark is the place across which i am gettin 75 ohm r which i want to reduce to 12ohm so that i could get a current of 800mA

You can put 3 - 150 in parallel with 3 - 300 in parallel with the embedded 75 and reduce the total to 23.0 ohms.
Or just put the 12 in parallel with the embedded 75 to get  10.3 ohms.
Those are your choices. 
I use the formula  R|| = (R1 × R2)  / (R1 + R2)

plzzzzzz does not clear the confusion ? ?

Take 12 ohm and put it in place of the 75 ohm, job done ! !

i75 ohm resistance of the internal circuit

Homework can be tricky can't they ?

As can the statement of the question.

How can I make a 75 Ohm resistor from a 150, 300 and 12 Ohm resistor ?

If this IS NOT the question please restate it.

Put 12 Ohms in parallel and it will be near enough - using resistors to drop voltage is a bad plan though, if there is any kind of varying load.
