Protect your Personal Data

Most recyclers will attempt to erase data from refurbished or recycled devices. However, it is good practice to purge your personal data - your contact list, photos, text messages, etc. - before giving it over to a recycler (or passing it to a family member or friend).

Most devices allow you to erase all of your personal data and reset the device to its factory settings. Refer to your owner's manual or the manufacturer's device support website. Make sure you've also removed or erased the data on any expansion memory such as microSD cards and removed your SIM card. If you can't find the instructions or need assistance, visit any Verizon Wireless store or call our toll free number 800-416-8894.
