How to reset your Droid in five easy steps?

If you have lately noticed that your Android-based phone isn’t performing the way it was earlier, chances are that there may be an optimization issue, a software overload issue, or plainly a virus issue bothering it. If you know the appropriate fix for it, you can easily apply it now and bring your phone back to how it was previously functioning. However, if the fixes didn’t help you or if you figured out that resetting the phone back to its factory default state was the only answer to the situation, here are the simple steps mentioned below for your perusal.

  • Go to the ‘Settings’ app on your phone and tap it to open it.
  • Browse through to find the ‘Backup and Restore’ menu.
  • Access it and look for the ‘Factory data reset’ option.
  • Select this option and confirm the action when prompted.
  • Choose the ‘Reset Phone’ button and initiate the resetting process.

Before you start applying these steps, you should be aware that like with every other software or device reset, resetting your Droid phone will also result in your losing all data saved in the phone. This can include your music files, photos, apps, and even contacts. Therefore, create a backup of all of these, unless you don’t mind installing each of these separately and creating your database all over again…

Tip: Different devices may have a different UI. Check out with the particular manufacturer if there is a deviation.
