    Default Reset: Hard or Soft

    How do you do a soft reset and a hard reset if that does not work? Thanks!

    It depends on what you mean by soft and hard reset. Soft reset typically means a simple reboot--i.e., powering the phone down completely, then turning it on again. As long as you saved any data that you were working on before the reboot, no data will be lost.

    A hard reset typically means a full factory data reset, which wipes the phone. This can be achieved from within the Settings>Backup & reset menu. If you're unable to get there, you can also boot into Recovery and do it there as well: Reset: Samsung Galaxy S 4 | T-Mobile Support


    IN CASE YOU'RE WONDERING, I'll be on vacation from 7/27 to 8/13, with only intermittent web access. So if you don't see me around much, don't worry, I didn't defect to another site or anything like that.
