Clear cache or data


If an application on your device is not responding, you can clear the temporary files from the application cache to free up memory. If the application remains unresponsive, or if there is an application you want to reset to factory settings without uninstalling it, you can clear the application data. Clearing application data can also free up memory on your device.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
