    Today my friend was trying to figure out my password without my knowledge and failed too many times. Some how my droid factory reset and I don't know how to retrieve any backups or data that were automatically done. I've never done any backups myself and there was no backup done before reset happened. Is there any way for me to get my phone back the way it was or do I need to just redownload everything again? Thanks to everyone :)

    Well, part of the setup process from factory reset is to restore data from your Google account. This will reinstall all of your apps, some of the data from those apps, and some of your settings (wallpaper, wifi access points, etc.)

    If your phone wasn't doing those backups - sorry, you're out of luck. You can go into the Play Store on a PC browser and reinstall apps in the "My Apps" area of the Play Store.

    I've downloaded some of my apps back through the google play, it's just there's little differences everywhere and none of my passwords and stuff are there. I was just hoping there was some way that I could press a few buttons and it'd be the exact same as before it was reset.
