Master Reset Instructions

A master reset reverts the device back to factory settings. It will permanently erase all personal data, preferences, settings and content such as pictures, ringtones and apps that are saved to the device and SD card. It is recommended that you save (backup) important data to your SIM card, or a computer before proceeding.

First, try this:

Master reset from settings menu

  1. From the home screen, press the Menu key, and then tap Settings.
  2. Tap Privacy.
  3. Tap Factory data reset.
    NOTE: To reset just the device settings to factory defaults, tap Settings reset.
  4. Tap Reset phone.
  • If security is enabled, you will be prompted to enter your unlock information at this time.

Tap Erase everything.

If that doesn’t work, or if your phone is frozen:

Master reset with hardware keys

  1. Remove and re-insert the battery.
  2. Hold down the Menu (left side) and Back (right side) keys below the screen, while also pressing the Power key.
  3. Release the Power key once you see the “Sony Ericsson” logo, and continue to hold the Menu and Back keys.
  4. When the AT&T animation ends, and the screen flashes and dims on the “AT&T World Phone” logo, release the Menu and Back keys.
  5. Your device will boot to the home screen, with “Safe mode” displayed in the bottom left corner. Follow the master reset instructions listed above.
