There are steps to show you how to hard reset to factory default settings at your own risk.
The combo to get to the menu to reboot is actually hold the vol down button and call button press and release the power button
Is there a length of time that I'm suppose to hold it?? Cause I tried BOTH combos, and neither one did anything at all...
just do like rachel's says but keep holding long press on down valume and send button tell you see the the menue
rachel is right - hold both volume down and send, and press/hold the power key. the debug menu will appear right away without the normal lengthy boot process. only way to use my phone after I forgot the unlock pattern! this is on a virgin mobile version of the intercept.
This does not work for the Sprint version. I have tried both ways and nothing.
I HAVE THE SPRINT VERSION AND IT WORKED FOR ME WHEN YOU SEE THE SAMSUNG SIGN LET GO OF THE OTHER TWO BUTTONS
Thanks for the help, this is the only option that worked for me, after a long time searching, hold Vol down and power, when screen turns on release both buttons imediately
that is correct after you release power button wait few seconds when u see samsung sign let all buttons go it works for both my sprint and virgin mobile
very very ood it work yo have tohold volume down and send and power at the same time dont let go till u see the menu thanks guys all of yall i love ya very much i dont kno what to do with out yall.
You are exactly right:) Don't let go until you see the menu! Called sprint and they couldn't help. I was going to have to take it to the store. You saved me a trip thx:)
the only way that works on my virgin mobile intercept is:
hold VOLUME DOWN button at the same time you hold the SEND button and dont let them go, then press for a couple seconds the POWER button and let it go, then press again the POWER button without letting go the VOLUME DOWN and SEND buttons, and the recovery menu is going to show up right away. now scroll down with VOL DOWN to WIPE DATA/ FACTORY RESET and press one time the SQUARE button between SEND and POWER buttons now press VOLUME UP to do the recovery that usually is done in 4 seconds and then just press REBOOT SYSTEM NOW and you are done.
I have the sprint cersion, and it worked for me.
I used Rachel's method on both a virgin mobile and a sprint intercept and both worked. They are a little touchy and sometimes you have to try it a few times but that method does work on both the virgin mobile and sprint intercepts.
Actually the other poster are right remove battery, replace battery. Then hold down Vol-, Send/recieve call and press and release power/end button( for like 1 sec). It does work for Sprint Samsung Intercept. I just did it myself because I had too many apps and powered off my phone. I'm glad they are now giving the option to install to SD card on some apps!=^..^=
ok i have the samsung intercept and i have seem to lock my self completely i can't d the pattern only this email thing and it won't let me do my email,i tryied codes and the stuff up there that you guys mentioned and nothin workss what should i do
I was having trouble with the sequence. It seem to work for me as the samsung login screen was booting up. Hope this helps anyone else. (hold down volume and talk key at the same time. then press power once then again and let everything go).. It worked the 2nd time I tried it. The process removed all previous apps and there was no need to reactivate it.
the resetting works for me but doesnt reset the phone number that was on the phone and I still cant change the phone number to a new one
Thnkz dat really worked
I've done the process three times because my phone is stuck at the samsung screen. After I get to the page and I reset the phone to fabric settings it's still gets stuck in the same place.
The problem with my situation is that I bought the phone in the USA and now I don't live there so no one wants to help me get it repaired. Is there anything else I could do?
I appreciate it.
follow alfonso v it worked for me
Thanks guys. After reading the reviews I finally figured it out on my sprint samsung intercept.
it does not work!!!
Thanks it worked
Worked for me.... Virgin Mobile Samsung Intercept... thanks!
This just worked or me:
First, try this:
1. From the main home screen, tap the menu button
2. Select Privacy
3. Tap Factory data reset
4. Read the disclaimer, then tap Reset
5. Tap Erase everything
If that doesn't work, or if your phone is frozen:
1. Turn the power off. If your Samsung Intercept is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it
2. Hold the Volume Down button
3. Press and release the Power button
4. You are now presented with a menu that allows for Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock
5. Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button
6. Press and release the Power button
7. Now simply confirm your decision: Volume Up for YES and Volume Down for NO
It does work; however, initially, I was holding down the volume down key and send key and holding down while power back up and wasn't seeing the menu.
You only need to hold the volume down and send key, while simultaneously turning the power on, until the Samsung logo appears on the screen, then you immediately let go of the volume down and send keys. You will then see the menu.
cn anyone help me please, i have a samsung gt-1105f phone and i forgot my simlock code, any one who knows the secret code to break it out?
it just doesnt work for my corby. a phone pic with arrow down just display .
