    Are you rooted? I'm guessing not since you're running out of space, but if so don't do it.

    If not: Settings>Privacy>Factory Data Reset

    No worries, Melim! I've stated many times before, the only problems I've had with my OV were always my fault. :D

    Dig! As I re-read the thread, I can see how you felt. My intent was not to undercut Mac, I'm just reporting my observations.

    I should have said, can have memory problems as well. Not saying all do, I don't but I know there are others that do.

    Fair enough! I seem to have been lucky with my phone, I keep sidesteping the pitfalls others have with the OV.

    He's probably thinking he's been hijacked.

    To answer the op there's an option under privacy in your menu. But do not use it if rooted
    Edit: sorry didn't see melim did give the answer.

    I'm convinced about 60-70% of my posts here are invisible. Or about that many people have me on ignore. :p

    You have a custom recovery. That option isn't there in the stock recovery, so would not be available for everyone. The reset option under privacy is on every OV unless it has a custom rom, and if that's the case, you have it in the recovery.
