Resetting Your Phone
It is possible to reset your phone to its factory settings should the need ever arise. Please keep in mind that resetting your phone causes all data and apps to be erased from the phone. If you have downloaded and installed apps directly to the phone, those apps will be gone for good. However, apps that are downloaded and installed through the Zune software can be reinstalled without having to repurchase them. Apps that were built into the phone by the manufacturer will be automatically reinstalled when the phone is reset. To reset your phone, follow these steps:
- Press the Start button.
- Flick the arrow icon to the left to access the App List (which is covered in the next chapter).
Scroll to the bottom of the App List and tap Settings.
- Scroll to the bottom of the screen.
Tap Reset Your Phone.
Read the warning message and then tap Yes.
- When Windows asks you if you are sure, tap Yes.
- The phone is automatically powered off as a part of the reset process.
