How to Factory Reset TracFone

Doing a factory reset restores the phone’s software and settings to how it was when new, often fixing a variety of issues. A reset also lets you wipe all personal data off a TracFone if you plan to sell or gift it to someone else.

Resetting a phone can seem daunting if you’ve never done it before though. Thankfully, factory resetting a TracFone device is straightforward once you know the steps. By accessing the reset option in your phone’s settings menu, you can fully wipe your TracFone in just a few minutes.

To start the actual reset process, access the reset option in the TracFone’s settings menu:

1. Open the Settings app on your Tracfone.

2. Tap on “Backup & Reset” in the Settings menu.

3. In the Backup & Reset menu, tap on “Factory Data Reset.”

4. At the bottom of the screen, tap on “Reset Device” to initiate the factory reset process.

5. A prompt will appear asking you to confirm that you want to erase everything on your phone. Tap on “Erase Everything” to confirm and factory reset your Tracfone.

It will take a few minutes for the reset process to complete. Let the phone work through the reset steps. When finished, it will reboot itself and you will be brought to the initial set up menu to reconfigure the phone from scratch.

Doing a full factory reset will get your TracFone device back to its original out-of-the-box state. Just take time to back up anything important before resetting and be prepared to set up the phone again after wiping it.
