Re: restoring dataW

If you mean wiping the device to factory settings. Then yes everything will go back to the way is was the day you bought it. If you are talking about creating a backup and restoring the phone that way then no. A backup will be an exact replica of the way it looked just before you made the backup. May I ask why you are asking? Perhaps we can help you with something else.

Re: restoring dataW

The reason is I took the battery out and when the phone came back, my home screen was gone and some of the icons are shown as ? marks with no icon.  All messages, call log, etc is there, but my home screen has gone black and white and everything weird, not like how I even bought it.  ????

Re: restoring dataW

Unfortunately I do not know what caused that. Hopefully someone else has a solution. Ideally when you pull the battery the appearance of the screen and icons should be exactly as you left them.

But they ARE different. This one he wanted to know the effects of a hard reset. The other one he wanted to know how to solve his icon problem. It's just that on this one I asked him why he wanted to know. And it lead into the icon problem. That's why he explained it again.
