Perform a Master Reset
  1. A master reset will result in the loss of all data stored on the device including 3rd party applications.

    This type of reset should only be used as a last resort after all other troubleshooting steps have been exhausted. It is highly recommended that you complete a backup of the device information before proceeding with the steps in this tutorial.

    From the home screen, use two fingers to swipe down the Status bar.

  2. Tap the Settings icon.

    Note: If only one finger was used to swipe down the Status bar, swipe down again to access the Quick Settings menu.

  3. Scroll to and tap Backup & reset.

  4. Tap Factory data reset.

  5. Read the warning and tap RESET PHONE.

  6. If prompted, enter your screen lock to continue.

  7. Read the warning and tap ERASE EVERYTHING.

  8. The device will completely reset and restart.
