We all have been plagued by a situation at least once in our lifetime where we forget our phone’s password or pattern that can unlock our device.
After numerous tries 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 that fortunate because logging into your Gmail account because:
- There is no Wi-Fi available at your location
- You had previously turned the Wi-Fi off on your mobile
- You have forgotten 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 remembers your last password only)
At this point, there remains no other option but to factory reset your cell phone to wipe off any of the security settings you had set.
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 ay valuable data, apps etc. Basically, 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 Q-mobile.
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 a warning from the system about all your data being removed. You obviously have no choice so using the lower volume key button you’ll have to 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 that your phone is 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.
