Performing a Hard (Full) Reset on a Samsung Galaxy Gio
A full reset is sometimes referred to as a hard reset. Perform a full reset when you want to clear all settings, programs and data from RAM. A full reset deactivates the battery the power button does not function until the battery is reactivated.
Caution if you perform a full reset, your Samsung Galaxy Gio returns to its default settings and looses all information that is not recorded in ROM.
To perform a hard reset:
- In Idle mode, open the application list and select Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset > Reset phone > Erase everything.
