How to Factory Reset Samsung Galaxy S III

Samsung Galaxy S III is an amazing phone. Do you like tweaking the phone or messing around with the features? When you get stuck at a point where you can’t fix things, there is always the option to simply revert back your phone just like how it was shipped out of the box.

Factory reset option in Android is almost the same in all the Android phones, but for those who still get stuck with this, we are here with clear simple steps on how you can factory / hard reset your Samsung Galaxy S III.

How to Factory Reset Samsung Galaxy S III

Just follow the simple steps below to factory/hard reset your phone:

Step 1 – Go to Settings > Back up and reset.

Step 2 – Tap on “Factory data reset”.

Step 3 – Go through your added accounts and then tap the “Reset device” button.

Your phone will reboot and the reset process will start.

Make sure you have backed up all your data before factory reseting your phone or you might lose everything. Hard reset or a factory reset in the Samsung Galaxy S III also encrypts your previous SD card files and does not allow anyone else to see them after the phone has been factory reset.

Transfer all your photos and other important data from the SD card to your computer. And backup your text messages, call logs and settings.
