How To Factory Reset Your Windows Phone

Article: http://www.phonebuff.com/2012/06/hard-reset-windows-phone/

In this video, I show you how to factory reset (aka hard reset, master reset) your Windows Phone 7. Doing a factory reset is great for when your phone is having software related problems as it restores the phone to its original state when there were no problems. Another thing hard resets are useful for are when you want to sell your old phone and want to wipe all your personal information off of it.

To do this, go to the Windows Phone settings. Go to about, then scroll to the bottom and tap on “reset your phone” and confirm the warning. This will wipe your phone clean. Warning: Doing a factory reset erases EVERYTHING off of your phone. Make sure you back up everything you want before proceeding.

    This does not reset ALL the phone settings to factory original settings. For most people this will be fine. But it does not set it back 100% to original settings. Close but no cigar. Search..there are ways to do it. How would it know I am in the windows insider program if I did this, entered no data go to update and security an dit alrday know I am in the windows insider program?

  36. Geoffrey Smith

    Brilliant and so simple. All of the other reset videos go through a useless button-pressing routine, which didn't work for me. All of the time, the reset was possible using keys. Great!
