does a factory data reset delete all of my old text messages?
(Motorola Backflip btw)
Yes, unless there is something unique to the Backflip. A Factory Data Reset will restore your phone to the out of the box condition.
Your contacts and apps will get re-downloaded from Google but not your text messages
thank you! i gave my phone to my sister...and i just thought it would be weird for her to see my texts lol
Welcome to the Android Forums!
does a factory reset also delete root if i used adb to root it?
I can only speak to the droid, but no it should not lose root. I had to do factory reset once before I started using custom ROMs and I kept root. Hope this helps.
