How do I reset my iPhone 4 to factory settings? I am trying to sell it and I don't want any information left on it


  1. Tap the Settings app on your homescreen.
  2. Scroll down to the General menu. Tap it.
  3. Scroll all the way to the bottom and tap the Reset menu.
  4. On this screen, you'll be presented with a number of reset options, ranging from just resetting the iPhone's settings to resetting its dictionary or homescreen layout. There's nothing specifically labeled "factory reset"; the option you want is called Erase All Content and Settings. If you're sure that's what you want to do, tap that.
  5. If you have a passcode set on your phone, you'll be prompted to enter it here. If you don't have one (even though you should!), skip to the next step.
  6. A warning pops up to make sure you understand that if you proceed you'll be erasing all music, other media, data, and settings. If that's not what you want to do, tap Cancel. Otherwise, tap Erase iPhone to continue.
  7. It generally takes a minute or two to delete everything from the iPhone, but when the process is done, you'll have a brand-new, pristine (at least from a software perspective) iPhone ready for whatever your next step is.

  • Hi there,

    To restore your iPhone back to factory settings complete the following steps:

    1) Press the "Home" button on your iPhone, and tap the "Settings" icon on the main screen.

  • 2) Tap the "General" tab, and tap the "Reset" tab.

  • 3) Tap "Reset All Settings" to restore the iPhone to its default settings. Tap "Erase All Content and Settings" to restore the iPhone to its original factory settings, which erases all of your information including bookmarks, SMS messages, contacts and music.

  • 4) Tap "Erase iPhone" to confirm the action.

    Hope to have been of assistance,
    Cheers.

    My iphone does not sync. I tried syncing it with different computers but I get the same error message "itunes cannot read the contents of the iphone"...It is a jailbroken and unlocked iphone 4.....


    Hi you can apply factory reset from SETTINGS menu under General menu as "RESET" this will reset everything . But by doing so you will loose all your settings including Jailbreak.. So it is up to you,either use it as it is or RESET and return the original Apple settings which than you will able to snyc with itunes.... take care..

    Hi, my E63 it's in chinese. How can I get it to english without understanding chinese? Thks


    Hi gilberto_vie,

    Try typing in code *#7780# to perform soft reset - this restores factory settings without deleting your data.

    If that doesn't work try *#7370# to perform hard reset - but this will delete all your data and restore factory settings.

    If the phone asks for a security code the default Nokia security code is: 12345

    (Please note: If you are using a phone that was purchased in China, the default language will be Chinese, so after restoring settings it will still be in Chinese!)

    Hope this helps you.

    Best regards,

    CellPhBuddy.

    I ordered a i9+++ sciphone from china but cannot change it english and therefore cannot use it, does anyone know how i can change the language on this phone?


    I had similar situation. Go to the setting icon with the wheel Select the 4th option from the top (it's the phone setting) Select the 3rd option from the top (it's the Language setting) If you do not see the English option select any of the option languages. Repeat this process and the english will show up. If you can scroll the screen try that also. I took about 4 tries to get to the English option. Good Luck

    Iphone touch screen


    Hello, Have you tried resetting the iPhone? Hold the main round button on the front in while also holding the small button on top of the unit in. Hold these both in until you see the screen change or it shuts down completely.
