How to do a master reset on a Galaxy S6 Edge Hi Droid Guy. In an effort to free more space, I disabled a bunch of apps I don’t use but are factory installed. Ignoring the warning that disabling such apps could cause the phone to not function properly, I went ahead and disabled. I restarted my phone but now it won’t turn on. It’s caught in a perennial attempt to start. I tried the factory reboot instructions but the screen that appeared had a warning about “installing a different OS”. I don’t have a different OS to install so I just hit the down volume key to cancel. What should

Galaxy S6 Edge factory reset itself This morning my phone (in the car, not connected to WiFi) had a black screen with red writing saying it needed to update. When I clicked the home button, it said it was updating, then said it had been reset. My phone reset – as in factory reset! Fortunately, when I put in my email, most all of my info was able to be retrieved from my Verizon cloud. However, I’ve lost some contacts (2 I can tell so far) and cannot get my work email to sync through Outlook. It is requiring a password every 2-3 seconds, but I can tell emails are being
