Samsung Reset Code a.k.a. Master Reset Code is a combination of asterisks (*), hash signs (#), and numeric characters that when applied, hard resets the Samsung mobile phones or tablets, i.e. restores the phone to its factory defaults while erasing all your data from it. The Samsung reset code is common for all Samsung smartphones but is unique to its brand only. In other words, the Samsung reset code works only on Samsung devices and if used on mobile phones from any other brand, the output is null.
Because of the rapid advancements in the technology, the master reset code for Samsung smartphones has changed and is applicable on all new models available in the market. Even though the previous Samsung reset code doesn't work on the new models, the older phones can still be hard reset using the old code.
At present there are three Samsung reset codes and your phone may work with any one of these. The three Samsung reset codes are:
• *2767*3855# for new Samsung phone models
• *2767*2878# for new Samsung phone models
• #*7728# for old Samsung phone models
The answer to this question is simple and straightforward. As soon as you apply the Samsung reset code on your Samsung smartphone, the phone initiates the hard reset process instantaneously. However the downside of using the code is that it never displays any confirmation box or warning message before initiating the hard reset process.
Since many Samsung users are not aware of this disastrous behavior of the Samsung reset code, they accidently end up destroying all their personal data only because they wanted to check if the code was correct.
That being said, it is strongly recommended to use the Samsung reset code carefully, and always have the personal and important information on your phone backed up to a separate device.
How to Use the Samsung Reset Code?
Using the Samsung reset code on the Samsung mobile phones is fairly simple. All you need to do is:
1. Power on your Samsung smartphone.
2. If not already available on the Home screen, open the Apps drawer and tap the Phone icon.
3. If you are not already there, tap the Keypad option from the top.
4. On the Keypad interface, start typing the Samsung reset code that is applicable for your Samsung phone.
5. Normally the hard reset process initializes as soon as you type the last character of the reset code. If it doesn't, you can tap the Call button to start hard resetting your Samsung smartphone.
As discussed above, resetting your Samsung smartphone using the hard reset code is an extremely simple process with only one drawback that it doesn't prompt any confirmation box for your consent.
Also, you can use the Samsung reset code on your Samsung smartphone only when your phone is in working condition and is capable of accepting the inputs you give to it. In case the phone is not responding to your inputs or it has been permanently locked due to any reason, the other methods to hard reset the phone must be used.
