1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I'm just wondering EXACTLY what gets deleted from my phone if I do a Factory Data Reset. For example, will my contacts still be there? (Assuming that I don't also delete my Internal Storage, but in case I do, would I have to move all of my contacts to my SD card)?

    Contacts should be linked to Google account or backup asst so when you restore they should as well after you sign in

    If you do the FDR, (maybe even more than once to be certain) and you don't set it back up with your account, everything is gone but the current version of Android and stock apps. Once you set it back up, with the same account and also tell it to sync with Google, all the previously installed apps should be available and contracts will sync with the cloud. If Google had been syncing correctly before, some other settings will also come back like previous WiFi connections.

    People make a big deal about fdr like its such a pain to do, but it only takes a few mins to set everything back up the way it was. You may have to re-setup your widgets, that's it.

    I just did a FDR. It only took a minute to do. The painful part was that my apps did not download automatically as they did in a previous FDR. Is there a setting that makes this automatic? That was a painful experience to manually re download over 130 apps! They where attached to my gmail account but just would not download by themselves.....

    Phone seems to be working better which was the goal in the first place.

    I must admit, phone is working much better after FDR. Vzw also fixed my network extender which was messed up and gave me a new sim card for the phone. All in, it was a successful weekend w/vzw and the bionic. Angst level very low at the moment!

    It always takes me forever, but I have to root it, install Tasker install SL4A, all my shell scripts, setup my VPN connection, import all my scripts, etc. So, I don't care for wiping very much. Its a huge PITA.
