    Alright, really dumb question, and am almost ashamed to ask.. but I guess it's better to look dumb, then to feel like a dumba...

    Anyways, if I were to do a factory data reset, nothing on my sim card gets deleted right?

    My phone is still running sluggish, even after the update, so I'd like to start fresh and see if that helps.

    Maybe this sounds dumb, but wouldnt a easy way be just to hook it up to computer and manually delete files?

    And are you sure that all of that stuff is meant to be deleted?

    So after doing a factory reset, I know I will need to reload any apps and contacts, how about the music that I have?
