Samsung Galaxy S II

How To: Reset 25 Popular Phones

The Galaxy S II has a few different names depending on which carrier you’re with. AT&T and T-Mobile call it the Galaxy S II, and Sprint calls it the Epic 4G Touch.

Soft Reset:

To force a soft reset, simultaneously hold down the Volume Up button and Power button for about five seconds. Alternatively, you could also remove and reinsert the battery.

Factory Reset:

As with most Android devices, you can restore factory defaults from within the settings menu. From your home screen, press the Menu button and go to Settings>Privacy and select Factory Data Reset. The next screen will give you the option to format your USB storage as well.

A factory reset can also be done through the recovery menu. Access it by holding Volume Down while powering on the phone. Use the volume rockers to navigate the menu and the power button to make selections.
