There are two general ways to reset your Samsung Reality phone. The first method resets the device to factory settings, but does not remove any of your personal information. This is useful if the Reality is not working properly, or you do not like its configuration. The second method completely restores the phone to its default state, and your personal data is removed. You can use this approach if you are giving the phone to another user, and want the Reality to function like a brand-new phone. Start by turning off your Reality.
