Master Reset Instructions

Master reset from settings menu

A master reset restores the original factory settings and may delete your personal data on the internal storage, such as downloaded content, ringtones, images, apps, and contacts. It does not delete data stored on the SIM card or SD card.

To perform a master reset, follow these steps:

  1. Back up all necessary data, and synchronize files. See: Backup & restore.
  2. Before performing a master reset for software issues, turn off automatic backup so the issue does not return.
  3. From the Home screen, press the Menu key.
  4. Touch Settings.
  5. Touch SD & Phone Storage.
  6. Touch Factory data reset.
  7. Touch Reset phone.
  8. Touch Erase everything.
