How do I retreive my photos after factory reset on android?


A factory reset on Android devices is usually described as wiping your personal data. However as with Windows it may still be recoverable.

I have not used this tool, but it is said to do this job.

How to wipe iPhone cleanly


"Erase all content" means all of YOUR content, including all applications you have downloaded and all the data for those applications and all the data for Apple applications (i.e. Mail, Photos, Calendar, Safari, etc.) will not be completely removed from the device, they still remain on your iPhone and can be easily recovered by some iPhone data recovery.

I highly recommend you to try Safewiper iPhone data eraser app to complete your iPhone data, it will be the best choice when you need to sell your old iPhone or iPad.

So I woke up and it keeps telling me unfortunately launcher has stopped working? How do I fix it? I haven't even had the phone a week. By the way it's a zte quartz


Try wiping the system cache partition. There might be some temporary system data stuck there that's causing a conflict. You won't lose any personal data or settings. Follow the instructions in this video, butmake sure you select "wipe cache partition," and NOT "wipe data/factory reset."

I want to unlock my bb 9700 which i wrongly typed unlock code to more than 10 times.can i still use the phone again and how do i go about it?


Yes, definitely you can still use the phone but it will be restored to it's Manufacturers settings.


Just enter the incorrect password x10 times and your Blackberry will be wiped. Your personal data will be gone, but you can then enter a new password and start again.



note:

After the 10th attempt, if you get the password wrong, it will have you type in blackberry again and it will completely wipe your Blackberry of all your personal data and it will reload itself back to factory default.

Basically, this is a security measure in case someone gets a hold of your Blackberry and attempts to break in to get your personal information. RIM Blackberry does NOT have your password, so unfortunately a RIM tech support agent cannot retrieve your password.

Hopefully you have created a backup of your Data using the Desktop Manager, so if you cannot remember your password and the device wipes itself, you can restore your data from the backup with the Desktop Manager

Im on my 9th attempt but my password is still incorrect keeping my keyboard locked. will all data be lost if do the 10th attempt and its still incorrect?


What happens is that before the the final attempts the phone will prompt you to enter the word "blackberry" and on the 10th attempt will warn you of the consequences if your password is still incorrect. It will then wipe all personal date and return the phone to it's original, out of the box, configuration. The data can be restored via BlackBerry Desktop Manager (provided you backed it up!) but you'll still need the phone password in order to do so. If you still cannot recall the password then the data is effectively irretrievable: BlackBerry security is so rock-solid that even RIM (the manufacturer) cannot bypass the password. The phone itself will be completely usable though.

Note that if your phone has been supplied by your employer then they may have installed an Enterprise edition of the BB operating system. This allows far more customisation and also gives them the opportunity to use additional BB software to reset or send your password to the phone remotely so if this applies to you then contact your employer before making any more password entry attempts. It can also allow them to wipe or disable the phone remotely and can set the phone itself to be lock itself after it wipes data.

I hope that my reply has been informative and useful to you, good luck with the password. Please take a moment to rate my answer or to add comments instead if you wish me to expand upon my answer.
