I recently purchased this phone on ebay. It came with a wall charger, battery, and phone. This person left all their settings and contacts on it and I would like to restore it. What do I need to buy or do to restore to default settings?
Solved! Go to Solution.

hi and welcome to the forum.
sounds like a nicked phone to me.
anyways, press menu button next to green answer key then press options and at the bottom is reset settings.

From your homescreen, go to Options>Security>Security Wipe and follow the instructions.

imanubnoob, take a look at what you're actually deleting by your method. If you go into Setup, there is no Security in there.
The only way to completely wipe everything from the phone and make it appear like it just came from the factory is by the method I suggested.
If you accomplished your goal, good for you. I just want to make sure everything is wiped, as you requested.
