Question about Cell Phones
Posted by Anonymous on
The procedure varies from brand and model. You should look up what it would be for your model of phone.
Power down your device. Before you begin the reset procedure, you will need to completely power your device off. (If the device is frozen, you can pull the battery out to turn it off.)
Press and hold the recovery buttons. The buttons vary from device to device, so you may need to look up the instructions for your particular phone. Google your phone's brand and model plus "recovery mode." Or look up "hard reset" "recovery mode."
You will need to press and hold the buttons for a few seconds. Some of the more common button combinations include:
Volume Up + Home + Power
Volume Down + Power
Home + Power
Select Factory Reset. Once the recovery menu opens, you can navigate the menu with the volume buttons.
You may need to open the Recovery menu to find the Factory Reset mode. Use the Power button, some models use the camera button, to select your menu options.
You will be asked to confirm the factory reset.
Wait for the restore process to compete. After your phone resets, it will be set back to factory defaults
