You can either go to settings -> general -> scroll to the bottom "set to default"
Here you can choose what to reset.

OR you can restore the firmware of the device (this will erase all data on it, music, videos, pictures, bookmarks, wifi-keys...)


To set your iPhone 3G back to factory settings, just connect it to itunes and wait for the device to appear. Click on the iphone and you should see the screen that tells you how much more space you have left etc.
In the middle of that screen you have the options to "search for updates" and for "restore" .
Click on restore and wait. (If you have never restored or updated your iPhone, itunes will download the most recent firmware from the internet, this may take a couple of minutes)

Once its done, the iphone will restart and reconnect to itunes.
Itunes will ask you if you want to restore (if you have any backups) or treat it as a new phone.

Select treat as a new phone and give it a new name. Now everything is back to factory settings and all media, settings and accounts are deleted.

How do you factory hard reset a apple iphone with the model number A1332 an no sim?


iTunes enables you to restore iPhone to factory settings. Before you start restoring iPhone to factory settings, please note that you need to install the latest version of iTunes on your PC or MAC. Then go to Settings > iCloud to turn off Find My iPhone. Now, you can factory reset your iPhone with iTunes as follows.

1. Plug iPhone into the computer with the USB cable. The iTunes on your computer will automatically launch. If not, double-click the icon to start it.
2. Click the name of your iPhone at the upper right corner of iTunes, and then the information of your iPhone will be shown. Click the "Restore iPhone" button in the window to start.
3. iTunes will ask whether you want to back up iPhone before restoring. You'd better choose "Yes" for the reset will erase the contents in your iPhone. Then iTunes will start restoring your iPhone to factory settings.

Thank you for your inquiry regarding your iPhone 3G Farid.

The issue with your iPhone 3G going to the iTunes with USB screen mode, is an indication that the upgrade you attempted to perform somehow removed the previous iOS (iPhone Operating System) you were using prior to the upgrade you were attempting achieve.

As a result, you are correct. Because you are connecting your iPhone 3G to another computer, you would not be able to sync with the other computer's iTunes library, without risk of losing all of your media on the iPhone 3G.

To resolve this issue, you would need to attempt to perform a restore back to the factory settings on the computer that contains the iTunes library you have original synced your iPhone 3G with.

This process will wipe the data from your iPhone 3G, yes, but if you have previously synced your iPhone 3G with that iTunes library on the computer in the past, that means the iTunes library will have some previous back ups from those past syncs you have performed with your iTunes library.

If that is the case, then when you perform the factory restore Farid, you will then need to follow up and perform a restore from your most current back up process in iTunes, so you can restore your iPhone 3G back to its most current settings and data, contacts, and pictures.

For a support page reference on how to perform a factory restore and a restore from a previous back up her is a link I would like to provide you for review:

http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1414


You can also use a software solution if you do want to safely transfer your data from your iPhone 3G to another computer with another iTunes library on another computer if you so choose.

One of the better software titles I recommend is called: Media Widget iPod Transfer Software

This is a great software solution for any iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad product.

Let me know if this helps. If you have more questions regarding this issue or what I have provided,, please free to reply back to this post.

Best Regards,

I forgot the password for my iphone


If you have forgotten your iPhone’s Passcode you will need to restore your phone via iTunes.

1. First you have to put your phone into the restore mode which is a slightly fiddly process.
2. Plug your iPhone into your PC or Mac with the USB cable
3. Press and hold the power button at the top and then slide to power off the iPhone
4. Press the power button to power the iPhone on and keep it held while simultaneously pressing the home button
5. After a few seconds a yellow alert triangle will appear and the iPhone will say it is iPhone Restore Mode.
6. Open up iTunes and click on the Summary tab
7. Click on Restore to restore your iPhone. This will reset all your iPhone’s setting to the factory defaults, including the Passcode.

You should then follow these steps below to activate the passcode again.
  1. Click the Home button to bring up the main menu
  2. Click on Settings
  3. In the Settings screen click on General
  4. In the General screen click on Passcode Lock
  5. This will open the Set Passcode screen. Enter a memorable 4-figure code and re-enter it when prompted
  6. You will now be at the Passcode Lock screen. You can change when you are prompted to enter the Passcode. The default setting – Immediately – means you will be asked to enter it as soon as your start using the iPhone. But you can change the setting so that the prompt appears after a certain period of use
  7. Press the Home button to return to the main menu.
