  2. RESTART YOUR DEVICE:  If a power cycle does not resolve your issue, perform a device restart. Press and hold the Power/Lock button, then select Restart > Restart.

  3. FACTORY DATA RESET: From Settings, swipe down and select General management > Reset > Factory data reset > select RESET DEVICE > DELETE ALL.
    Note: A Factory data reset will revert the device back to factory settings. It will permanently erase all personal data, preferences, settings and content such as pictures, ringtones and apps that are saved to the device. It is recommended that you save (backup) important data before proceeding.
