Samsung Epix SGH-i907 hard reset if phone responds

Resetting your Phone to Factory Defaults

You can reset your phone’s settings and clear all data/
applications from phone’s internal memory and/or external
memory (optional microSD Storage Card) by using the Hard Reset
option. This option resets your phone to its factory default
settings, ends all applications currently running, and wipes all
data (pictures/video/contacts) from your phone.

Note: Although this action wipes all information and settings from your SGHi907,
you can circumvent the deletion of important data by storing it on
a removable microSD storage card.

  1. From the Today screen, press the Start key.
  2. Select Settings ➔ System tab ➔ Hard Reset . The Hard Reset screen displays.
  3. Select the Hard Reset button. A confirmation screen displays.
  4. Select Device, enter the displayed password, then select the Yes button to remove all settings and data stored in your device.
  5. Cycle power to the phone, that is, turn the power off and then on again.
  6. Once the phone starts, you must use the Stylus and select the LCD screen to begin the calibration process.
  7. Using your Stylus, select within the crosshairs that appear in the align screen.
  8. Follow the on screen tutorials and complete the setup process.

General advice: Before you buy a new cell phone or new tablet, please try the following procedure to repair your device in a software way. First charge your battery, backup your important data if possible and in most cases take out SIM and SD card before doing factory reset. It is impossible to recover your data after doing a hard reset, so online backup is always important. For all of your data, a backup should be done on an external device, hard drive, raid system or media. With or without insurance, if your cell phone lost, damaged or stolen at least your invaluable data is backed up in a safe place. If you are about to sell your phone and you want to wipe your personal data, or if your phone affected with virus you have to do a hard reset. In some cases, you can delete the forgotten password or lock pattern from your device as well. All information is for devices with stock based ROMs. If you are using rooted device, always back up your EFS folder first, containing your IMEI info, etc.! Please also note, that a hard reset operation will not unlock your mobile phone's SIM lock or network lock, but it will remove the unlock pattern, remove the user password or PIN password (NOT the SIM card's 4 digit PIN code). Also note that the firmware version will not be affected in any way, it will not be downgraded, it will remain the same you are using and if you have rooted your device, root privileges remain also unaffected.
