Im going to swap my Droid for another. How do you wipe it clean?
lol *edit* sorry misunderstood even tho u put it in the title. i feel slow lol
Factory Data Reset
Doe that erase the SD Card?
dont think so.... just when trading it in ask to keep your SD card and they will just swap them for you.
I'm not sure. What you do is don't do the wipe until you are at the store before you swap the phone. Take your SD out before the wipe and then use that SD card in the swapped phone. Then they will put the blank SD card in the phone you are returning?
The wipe won't erase the SD card. There is a separate option for that (format card).
lol thats what i was thinking to, but he means internally wipe his personal info
You need to see if they will let you keep your sd card, if they dont allow you to do so then you need to fill the card with non sensitive stuff and format, do that atleast 2x. I know that seems extreme but it is very easy to recover info from sd cards. believe me whenever i buy a phone with a sd card i scan it to see what people leave behind. and i do find interesting stuff
To erase the SD card, go into Settings > SD card & phone storage. Then click on Unmount SD card. Once you do that, the Format SD card option becomes highlighted and available. Click on this - this will erase all data from SD card.
If i were u i would try to keep it and only give it to them if they ask u for it
