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

Reset settings my phone


Hello

1. Power the phone on. The phone should go through the basic start-up and come to rest on the main screen.

2. Press the "Menu" button and find the "Settings" option, then "Reset Settings." You may have a "Restore Factory Settings" option here, or a more extensive menu that lets you choose what to reset, such as sound settings, display settings, phone settings or all.

3. Reset the phone by choosing "All" or "Restore Factory Settings." Press the "Yes" button when the phone asks you to confirm that you want to reset it.
.
4. Power cycle the phone, and when it comes back on you will be able to reconfigure your settings correctly.
