How to Hard Reset the Samsung Galaxy J3

Samsung Galaxy J3 (6)
Hard Reset

Locked out of your phone? Maybe just selling it to someone and want it back to factory default? Here's are the instructions to hard reset the phone from Recovery mode. This will erase everything on your phone. Make sure to remove your memory card if you have one in there, wouldn't want to lose all those photo's! Also make sure you know your Gmail login before performing a factory data reset, most Android phones require you to log back into your Gmail after the reset to prove it is your phone and that it has not been stolen. Plus Gmail is a great way to make sure you never lose any information like your contacts, photo's, and important email's. Basically, the logins are very important DO NOT FORGET THEM!

- Hard Reset Instructions -

Step 1. Power off the phone by pushing and holding the sleep button on the right hand side of the phone. Then select Power Off.

Step 2. Once the phone is fully powered off press and hold the following 3 buttons at the same time. Volume Up+Power+Home Once the phone turns on you can let go of the Power button but must continue to hold Volume Up+Home. Hold these until you see an Android on the screen.

Step 3. After about 2 or 3 minutes (this phone takes a while) you will now see Android Recovery. Use the Volume Down key to highlight Wipe Data/Factory Reset and press the Sleep button to confirm.

Step 4. Use Volume Down to highlight Yes and press Power to confirm.

Step 5. Highlight Reboot System Now and press Power to confirm. You have now performed a factory reset and will be taken to the setup of the phone. As I said before you may have to login to the Gmail that was on this phone before the reset to regain access! Hope this helped!
