Default How Do I: Reset My Bold to Factory Settings

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, after having the issue of my Calendar not syncing with my laptop (or facebook) and my Today theme not showing my calendar items I have decided that perhaps I should revert my phone back to the factory settings and OS.

This issue only seems to have come up since I upgraded the OS last night.

How do I reset my phone?

You can't reset the OS. What ever OS is installed, will be the OS, even after a wipe.

To wipe the device: Options > Security Options > General Settings > Menu > Wipe Handheld

Damn, so I guess I would have to "roll back" the OS then? Like I said, this syncing issue only happened AFTER I upgraded the OS (see the sticky link) and it's a bit of a pain...

Or you can use JL_Cmder and choose option #5, reset to factory.

No, the OS will stay the same.
