    Does 'Reset to Factory" delete:
    1. Contacts?
    2. Pictures & Music?
    3. Anything on the SD card?

    No a reset to factory resets all of your settings back to factory settings, i.e. wallpapers, ringtones, etc. It doesn't erase anything.

    JL

    Oh I see, no data gets erased w/ Factory reset.
    What about with Wipe? Does my data get deleted, or just the OS?

    hmm, ive never personally used it but i thought the reset to factory actually reset your phone to how you received it... deleting the contacts and emails and pictures but ill do some research and come back

    funny thing is when i was looking for the answer i found a youtube video on the jl commander "reset to factory" and it warns you that your data is being cleared to make sure you have backed up your stuff before it actually does it so when you ever tried to use it you would have figured it out

    too bad my work computer has no volume, idk what the heck the guy was saying lol but the vid helped

    I haven't found it to erase anything on the SD card ---just to clarify. But if you're really concerned, just remove the SD card before you do the wipe(s). Can't say the same about contacts....I don't think they are stored on the SD card. Hope this helps.

    if you wipe your device you are deleting the os and you'll loose all the data stored in your phone, none of those procedures affect the sd card data...

    You may want to take a look at this jmu33

    I would also take a look at how many 3rd party apps you are running before I started to try this method of wiping your device.

    Some applications may cause your device to become less responsive over time.

    If you need more assistance, please don't hesitate to ask someone in the help team.
