Samsung i220 - Hard reset

December 2016

To perform a hard reset on a Samsung i220
  • first make sure handset is off
  • press the power button
  • as the SAMSUNG logo starts to appear press and hold the LEFT SOFTKEY and the RETURN KEY (the curved arrow next to the power key)
  • when the REBOOT MENU comes up PRESS OPTION #1 and the screen will turn pink and say its formattiing and thats it!

THE HANDSET RESTART SLOWER THAN USUAL! Dont worry that's because it resetting back to default factory settings.

Thanks to am3rah for this tip!
