Welcome and thanks for your question.

I'm Todd and I will be the expert working with you today to help resolve your problem.


What is the model of your cell phone?

If you are not sure, remove the back cover and battery from your phone and look on the label - sticker under battery. Your model number will be printed somewhere on this label.

Thank you.

Your phone model is Samsung Galaxy S3 mini.

To prevent your friend to see your predictive numbers, call history, browser history and any of your personal data you will have to perform procedure known as factory reset. That procedure will delete all your personal data and phone history.

Data stored on memory card (if you have one in your phone) will not be deleted. So, before this procedure be sure that you have created backup of your files and contacts.

To transfer contacts from phone to SIM card please use the procedure below:
1. Press the contacts icon.
2. Press the Menu key.
3. Press Import/Export.
4. Press Export to SIM card.
5. Press Select all.
6. When the box next to a contact is ticked (V), the contact is selected.
7. Press Export.
Press Yes to confirm.

When done, perform factory reset using procedure below:
1. On the Applications screen, tap Settings
2. Select Backup and reset
3. Factory data reset
4. Reset device
5. Erase everything
