    2. Press and hold Volume Down and Power button to enter recovery mode. (Old phone might use home button as well)
    3. After the Android logo, you'll be presented by a menu.
    4. Select "Wipe Data/Factory reset" from the menu.
    5. Press the Power button to confirm.
    6. Scroll to "Yes" and confirm with Power button.
    7. This will start the Reset Process.

  • How to insert sim card in Samsung Galaxy S21 ?

    E

    Answered By Ekta Mehta | 6 months ago

    The Samsung Galaxy S21 does not have a removable back cover. The non-removable back cover helps the manufacturer create a sleek design, lightweight and good looking product. It also helps with recovering a stolen phone, since the battery could not be removed. This is the reason the SIM slots are on the side these days. You can simply follow these steps to insert the SIM card:

    Switch off the Phone.
    1. Locate the SIM tray which is on either side of the phone.
    2. Open the sim tray using SIM ejector tool.
    3. Carefully, place the SIM card in it.
    4. Close the tray and you are done.

  • How to set custom ringtone on Samsung Galaxy S21 ?

    E

    Answered By Elilarasan Subramani | 6 months ago

    Well, sometimes you watch some movie and you want its tune as your ringtone. Happens right? It happened with me last when I watched Sherlock. Remember that violin tune.? Yes, so I got the tone and copied it to my phone by simply emailing and downloading it to the email ID configured on my phone.

    1. Once there, navigate to Settings
    2. Open the sound section
    3. Find Phone Ringtone option and open it
    4. Select local ringtone and select the ringtone which was copied
    So, you are done. Each time your phone rings, you listen to your favorite tune.
