A factory reset is only deleting the pathways to the data, you need to physically destroy the drive. This is how police for example can recover deleted data.I hear you. I also have a spare phone for apps and e-books etc. But still have others as paper
From what I understand, if you remove the sim and do a reset, and go into recovery mode and do a wipe you should be good to go.
But yeah, I will do a double check before plopping mine in.
Ohh and dont forget to remove the sd-card
Yep.A factory reset is only deleting the pathways to the data,
Only tech support I have is me and I do a sorry job at that. Better to be safe then to fall in the wrong hands .I hear you.
Though I am certainly no techy in these matters I do have plenty close friends ( and brother) who are in the know on these subjects so that I can feel well at ease with doing such things.
Refund? It's a machine. You put the fried phone in and it spits out a few bucks.Not certain but that may void any refund you may have coming to you.
Probably not good for your micro ither.
A long time ago I put a raw egg in the microwave (just on the rotating plate not in water) to see what would happen. It exploded, made a loud bang and the door flew open. Did it a few times actually 😂😂😂. I found it pretty funny but a smelly mess to clean upRefund? It's a machine. You put the fried phone in and it spits out a few bucks.
And I don't know about it damaging the microwave.
When I was a teenager my garage was the neighborhood hangout. I had a cheap little microwave in there, and I had a policy that any rap/hip-hop CD that gets put into my stereo system gets nuked. I still get a laugh remembering this one idiot friend of a friend get all whiny because I nuked his Tupac CD.
But we used to nuke all sorts of things in it.
That was back in the day when AOL would mail you CDs all the time and we'd nuke those too. It makes lightning bolt patterns in the disc.
Nuking an incandescent light bulb is interesting. It glows and changes colors for a few seconds until the wires inside melt.
Never hurt that microwave
LolBut we used to nuke all sorts of things in it.
I've wondered if you could take the guts out of a microwave and make something to mount on the roof of a tall vehicle like a truck or RV that fries out red light cameras as you go under them.Used to be able to turn on the florescent lights on those lite-all carts on the flightline at 100 yards with the continuous wave transmitter of the F4 Phantoms radar. Good for scaring the crap out of stupid security cops.
I.heard they sold em but to who who knows. I bet the ones that aren't clean go over seas. Since they dont have the laws that we do on stolen devices or unpaid onesDo you think they resell those phones overseas or do you think they just want them for the copper, nickle, silver and gold that the phones contain?
Boxing up your old phones is a good idea. You never know when you might need one!!!I dont buy or give into every bill of goods presented....if it sounds too good.....dust feet off and walk. I boxed my phones up....just keep them....think it might save a whole lot of aggravation in the long run....
