4. Protect Your Phone > Reset and Restore Your Phone

Reset and Restore Your Phone

Reset your phone without losing data or custom settings.

As a power user, you often need to fiddle with your phone to try out new software, experiment with new configuration settings, or even clear up viruses or other malicious programs. This fiddling can sometimes cause the phone software to crash, freeze, or otherwise behave abnormally (e.g., it will be unable to connect to the network or unable to run some programs). Some phone viruses discussed in “Avoid Malicious Software” [Hack #22] can also freeze your phone. This is when the reset feature in Nokia phones comes in handy. In this hack, you will learn not only how to reset your phone, but also how to back up and restore data in a systematic manner.
