    At first, tap over the Application screens icon available on the home screen. You can then get into a list of options. Scroll through that list and hit the ‘Settings’ option. This will show up the overall settings available in your Sony handset. Browse through those settings and hit the ‘SD card & phone storage’ option. Go to the ‘Internal phone storage’ section afterwards and tap the ‘Factory data reset’ option. After that, a prompt message will appear on the screen along with a ‘Reset phone’ button. Press that button gently and wait until the reset process get finished on your phone.
