How do I delete all my personal information from my Samsung Fascinate™?

Your mobile device provides you with the ability to delete all of your personal information from the device. This allows you to ensure that your data is removed before sending the device in for replacement or repair, properly disposing of the device, or giving the device to a friend or family member to use.

• Your personal information cannot be recovered after using this feature.
• Please save any personal information you need to your computer prior to using this feature.

Delete All Personal Information

  1. To delete all of your personal information from your device, touch Applications > Settings > Privacy > Factory data reset.

  2. Read the information provided and optionally select Format USB storage if you want to also remove any information from the USB storage section on your device.

  3. Touch Reset phone > Erase everything.

The process may take a few minutes while your device removes your personal data and restores the Android™ platform to its original state.
