    My Galaxy S4 was bought from eBay and I want to factory reset it.

    Is it safe to reset it as I know the new iPhone 5S has additional protection where you have to put the first SIM.

    Am I good to go ? Its unlocked and not on the original network it was bought on.

    You should be quite safe to perform a factory reset.

    Probably a wise move to make sure it is factory reset.

    i had to do a factory reset on my s4 shortly after signing my contract due some slowdown/corruption. I had no issues but i had the "original" sim in it at the time

    Everything went ok.

    Unlike new iPhone 5S which needs the original SIM in for activation.
