    I have a Samsung Galaxy Attain and an LG optimus and The “factory data reset” does not show up as an option on my phone. Is there another way to do it?

      When you go to “Settings”, you can go to “privacy” and then choose Factory Reset there. That’s where mine is located!

        This step worked for the T-mobile LG phone as well.

          Meant to say this step “Setting, then clicking on Privacy & then factory reset” worked for the T-mobile G2x Google/LG phone as well…
          Thank You

    I know dumb people shouldnt have smart phones but i do. My phone was only 5 days old when it started messing up I have no clue if I did something or not, I havent downloaded any apps at all..but its super low on memory storage and then several times it has said insert Metropcs sims card. If I turn it off and take the battery ONLY out for 5 mins and replace it and turn it back on that is gona but I still have no space to accept or send texts etc anytime I try to do something it forces closed! Its a ZTE Anthem, I really want my simple samsung phone back already!! I dont have a way to the store that i bought it from and its raining..If I reset the phone will it still have all the apps that it came with?

    I have an htc inspire android phone and my stupid friend locked me out and i don’t even have a google account set up. What should I do? I dont want to lose my contacts or anything. Should I call AT&T or should I factory reset, which it won’t let me do!!
