    If you go through the setup process (which is necessary to send TMs) then you've just undone the Factory Reset.

    When you perform a Factory Reset, simply turn the phone off.

    If I remember correctly there's a setting in the Kies software that allows you to format the internal memory at the same time you perform a Factory Reset.
