You have gmail account synced in your phone, right?

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Turn off your phone.

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Once the phone is off, hold the volume up, home, and power buttons down simultaneously. Continue to hold this combination while the phone boots, until the screen shows the Android Robot.

· After a few moments, you will have access to the phone’s boot menu. Using the volume up/down buttons to navigate, and the power button to make selections, find and select the Wipe Data/Factory Reset option.

· Scroll down to Yes, delete all user data, and press the power button once again. You will notice script scrolling along the bottom of the screen, which will end in Data Wipe Complete.

· Once the operation is complete, press the power button once more to reset the device.
