    Go through the main menu options available on the first screen of your Sony android handset. Then you have tap on the settings icon to enter the settings page of the device. After that the option with the label ‘storage’ needs to be selected. Then you have to hit on the option ‘clear internal storage’. You will be prompted to hit on that option for the second time to confirm the action. Followed by that, the option ‘erase everything’ needs to be selected. Now the entire internal storage of your android powered Sony phone gets deleted.

    Hello friend,
    Just do the following steps.
    Remember, by performing a reset, all your data- settings, messages, apps, etc would be deleted.
    So backup up anything important.

    Follow these steps:
    - Go to 'Settings'.
    - Privacy.
    - 'Factory Data Reset'.
    - Fill in your id and password and confirm.
    - You can choose whether to delete SD card data or not.

    After the process is complete, your device would return to its out-of-the-box state or to its factory settings.

    Regards!
