The definitive way of erasing all your stuff from inside your Samsung Galaxy ACE is by doing a hard reset: When you reset Android, the process will erase all your contacts, messages, installed applications and games, leaving your Samsung Galaxy ACE as if it just had got out of Samsung factory. This is why this process is also called “to factory default” your Android phone. Please follow these instructions to accomplish it:
- With the phone powered off, press and hod the following buttons, at the same time: Volume Up, Center / Enter button and Power button.
- Your Samsung Galaxy ACE will boot into a factory menu. You can move between options from the menu with the Volume Down / Volume Up buttons.
- You need to get into this RESTORE Menu and from there you need to select Wipe Data / Factory Reset
- Select YES with the Select / Enter Button: phone will be factory restored.
- After finishing, confirm the option REBOOT NOW to restart your Android phone
- Wait some minutes (your Android phone needs to work a bit) and Voilá
