    Hey there, i bought this phone, came with gingerbread 2.3.4 iirc, i upgraded to ICS. But with ICS GTA 3 seems to freeze my phone randomly, leading me to having to remove the battery. GTA 3 ran perfectly with gingerbread. Now when it does play, its laggy as hell. Would reverting to factory settings install gingerbread, put everything as it was, with the operator's apps and SE's apps just how it was? Also, if yes, how to do that? Or is the lag problem with GTA 3, and freezing, incompatibility with ICS? If its the last one, its ok, but i dont want my phone to perform worse in games...It ran GTA 3 Perfectly
    Thank you in advance.

    Yes it would...

    Factory Data Reset

    This will erase all data from your phone's internal storage, including:

    * Your Google Account
    * System and application data and settings
    * Downloaded applications

    To also clear Music, Pictures and Other user data, the SD Card needs
    to be erased.

    Back up any Music, Pictures and Videos ect that came pre-installed with the phone.

    if ICS is installed in your phone, when you do FACTORY DATA RESET it will not install GINGERBREAD... you need to reprogram it, downgrade the ICS to GINGERBREAD... go to the nearest service center so it would be hassle free for you...
