QMobile is still the most selling smartphone in Pakistan and this is why the proportion of users facing the issues is higher. We usually come across the query how to factory reset our mobile phone, so we thought to do a QMobile specific factory reset tutorial.
If you are using Samsung, Huawei or some other smartphone brand, we have another tutorial on it, however; the process is almost similar on all the Android phones.
Why You Need a Factory Reset
Actually, we all have been plagued by a situation at least once in our lifetime where we forget our phone’s password, PIN or pattern and the device wouldn’t allow us to unlock the phone.
After numerous efforts and usually inserting the wrong pattern for 10 times (depending upon the version of OS), Android provides you with a solution; You can login to your Gmail account and unlock your screen to work again.
But sometimes you are not fortunate to log into your Gmail account because:
- There is no Wifi available at your location
- You had turned the Wifi off on your mobile
- You also don’t remember your Gmail password (even if you reset your Gmail password from any other device, you won’t be able to log in through your mobile as it stores your last password only)
At this point, there remains no other option but to factory reset your cell phone to gain the access again and wipe off any of the security settings you had set earlier.
Factory resetting your device can bring back your device to life but at the same time, you will lose everything stored on your mobile phone including the valuable data, apps, photos, etc. In reality, it will restore all the settings to the point when you first bought the handset.
Here is a step-by-step procedure that will help you factory reset your QMobile Noir.
Watch the video or go step by step below
Procedure to factory reset your device
Do not panic and just press Power key (on the right side) and Volume Up+Volume Down (on the right side) simultaneously and keep them pressed for at least 10 seconds.
The phone will restart and you will see the following screen.
Depending on the model of your phone, you will see somewhat similar options. Select ‘Recovery Mode; by pressing Volume Up key.
The following screen will appear after you will complete the step two. Scroll down and select ‘wipe data/factory reset’. While it is selected, press the Option Touch key on the bottom left corner of your QMobile NOIR
You will get to see a warning from the system that your data can get removed. You obviously have no choice so using the lower volume key button scroll down to the option eight i.e. Yes and once again press the Option Touch key the way you did in step three.
Just wait for a while and you will see the phone getting factory reset after a few seconds. It may take more time for some people but eventually, it is going to reset everything. Once done, it will show you 8 options from which you need to select ‘Reboot System Now’. That’s it.
Your phone is back.
Although the process is easier, it’s a really painful to lose everything inside your phone. After regaining the control of your handset again, try to set a password or PIN that you can remember. I would suggest you to write it somewhere in case you forget it next time.
