Person resetting a Samsung Galaxy Flip phone

Whether your phone is moving a little too slow, encountered an annoying glitch, or you’re planning to pass it down to a family member, you’ll probably need to reset it. Not sure where to start? No worries—we’ve got you covered. At uBreakiFix® by Asurion, we know how to keep all of your tech working as it should. Here’s how to factory reset a Samsung Flip phone®. 

Preparing for a reset

Before resetting your Samsung Galaxy Flip, you’ll need to complete a few preparatory steps.

Charge your phone

Ensure your phone is sufficiently charged to avoid interruptions during the reset process. You wouldn’t want your phone to die in the middle of backing up, right?

Back up your data

Make sure all your important data—like contacts, photos, and messages—is backed up. You can use cloud services or back up directly to a computer. If you need help, check out our guide to backing up your Android phone.

How to soft reset your Samsung Galaxy Flip

A soft reset is like a quick refresh for your phone and doesn’t erase your data. Here’s how you can reset your device:

  1. Press and hold the Power button.
  2. Tap Restart to initiate the soft reset.

How to hard reset your Samsung Galaxy Flip

A hard reset will return your phone to its original factory settings, erasing all your data. This reset is a must if you’re going to sell it or give it to a friend. Be sure to back up your phone first. When your backup is ready to go, follow these steps to hard reset your Samsung:

  1. Go to the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down to General Management and then select Reset > Factory Data Reset. Then, confirm the reset.

If you've tried these steps and still need a little help, we're right around the corner. Schedule a repair at the nearest uBreakiFix® by Asurion store and our certified experts can get your device back up and running as soon as the same day.
