    How does one delete everything? I got a replacement phone (was defective) and want to delete all my personal info.

    Have you tried a Factory data reset? It erases all data on that particular phone.

    EDIT: Dang ilikemoneygreen beat me! :)

    According to the manual, I can fact reset with Settings/Privacy/Fact reset. There is NO "privacy" option.

    Or I can shut down, hold the vol down button, tap the power, release when image appears..... NO image appears

    Stuck!

    Thx for the help

    Also when going into recovery mode youll have to hit it severel times. Mine was iffy when i was rooting, i was doing it for like 3 min. and i found this video so saves me typing.

    You need to hold X then turn phone on, then "hold the vol down button, tap the power, release when image appears."

    Your way was simplest... i have the option on my phone. The way i described is old school. lol. kind of like taking the very long scenic route on a freeway when their's a quicker way to do it. Either way the result will be the same though, so he just gets to enjoy the Scenery of recovery mode. :)
