Before sending your phone off to a recycler most of you will want to know how to reset it to its factory settings. This page is dedicated to helping you reset your HTC mobile phone so that you can send it off with peace of mind that your phone is clear of data.

Don’t worry if you don’t though as many, if not all, of the recyclers featured on the site will restore your HTC back to its factory settings as soon as the phone is received.

Step 1 – Select the menu

Step 2 – Go to Settings

Step 3 – Scroll to the Privacy option/Storage option.

Step 4 – Select the factory data reset option.

Step 5 – Now reset all data on the phone*

Once you have done this, your device should now be completely reset and ready to send off.

To help you, we also have a few screen grabs below, in case you need help.

*Some HTC phones do vary, if you cannot find the factory data reset option under Privacy, try the Storage option, and then at the very bottom the option to reset will be present. Blog
