Can you tell me what happens if your sim card and sd card are inside the smartphone while you hard reset it?Do the SIM card settings get deleted?

Nothing happens to the SD card, and sim.
Your phone contacts, messages, calender entries, apps installed in phone gets removed.
Your phone will be like the way you got from the store.

Regards.

Why ask in the first place? I just did a hard reset. I took my SD card out first, no reason to play around and lose 13,000 photos even if I have did save them to my computer already. It takes time to recover, why risk wasting the time. I left the SIM card because it is a new one and nothing could be lost anyway.

I have a similar question. I have apps that I moved to the SD card (because I didn't have enough space in the built-in memory). Do I leave the card in during the reset? (I have backed up all the data that's stored on the card: music, photos, etc.). Either way, how does Google know where to reinstall apps that have resided in the sd card?

My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S5 on AT&T.

Thanks
