How to Reset a Alcatel Unlock plus How to Hard Reset Alcatel 1 (one) Touch or Ideal - Free & Quick!

hello this is Nick with Nick's computer

fix comm and here's a quick video on how

to reset your Alcatel phone back to

factory defaults okay let's go ahead and

get started here for those people who

might not know when they factory reset

is it basically means that you are

deleting and wiping out everything the

phone back to the way the phone was when

you first opened up the box and pulled

the phone out for the first time so

that's what we want to go ahead and do

and in this case this is the Alcatel

ideal and this also works on the One

Touch model as well and this is the

state in which we're trying to get the

phone back to where it says welcome so

I'm gonna go ahead and power this phone

down and touch that and that makes it go

off and there we go now at this point we

can go ahead and do a hard reset which

is the one that I'm going to show you

which is on the side you have your power

button and you have your volume button

you press and hold them both at the same

time and once you do it powers up the

Alcatel phone back up and then it puts

it into the factory reset mode where you

have a selection and as you can see the

first one says reboot system now but

what we want to do is go down to this

one here or let me move back up wipe

data / factory reset and hit the power

button - you know select it and then

we're gonna move it back down again with

the volume button and then hit the power

button and select delete all data all

right that's how you go about it and

we'll wait and see what happens here

this does take a few minutes to happen

so when you do this it's not

instantaneous and let me give you a

close-up shot here what it's doing it's

saying wiping data formatting data

formatting cache

now this process all depends on how many

apps you have installed how much data

and pictures you have it'll take about a

minute and afterwards you have a

selection here that says reboot system

and that's what we're going to do by

hitting the power button there and now

it's rebooting and now from the time

that you hit the power button to make

the Alcatel phone reboot it takes a good

three minutes I notice on this

particular phone to actually come back

to the welcome screen and while that's

happening I just want to let you know

that this is a very low price phone and

it's actually a throwaway phone in my

opinion and it's a 18t go phone which

basically you buy it and you pay as you

go but at any rate if you're in need of

accessing your phone because of whatever

reason you can't remember you PIN number

or your password or whatever this is the

way to do a hard factory reset and put

it back to factory settings whereas when

it powers back on you will get the

welcome screen and you will be able to

go ahead through the setup process on

the cell phone once again alright that's
