Unable to permanently wipe my phone
Ok I have been doing the data wipe/reset on ym X and EVERYTIME I do it, as soon as I sign into my gmail account EVERYTHING comes back, all my apps, all my old settings, even an old wallpaper that i dont even have on my phone any longer.
I have gone in and made sure the backup data option is NOT checked.
How can I get rid of this junk for good? I want the phone to be just as if I was activating it as a new user.

follow steps 8-15 in the first post of this thread to get your phone to stop restoring all of your apps after a factory reset. while you are making sure back up data is not checked, it seems like the restore data option is still checked.

Thanks for the help everyone!!! It worked but I think my problem is with the app itself. My Yahoo Mail will not make an audio notification. It only vibrates 2 quick times with no audio.
Yahoo mail app works fine on my wife's Incredible though............
