    EDIT
    Okay nevermind I'm stupid...
    I found my answer.


    Sorry if this has been covered before.
    If it was I must suck at searching, forgive me.

    So this is my first Android phone and now that I've messed around with it for the past 2 days I'd like to start over clean.

    So how do I reset the phone back to factory settings?
    And will I lose any of the preinstalled programs?

    Thanks!

    yes you will lose them but everything that is market/contact is attatched to your gmail name

    Steps to hard reset Android:
    1. Go to “Setting”.
    2. Select “SD card & phone storage”.
    3. Select “Factory data reset” which should be the last option.
    4. Press the “Reset Phone” button.
