Recently, I got my Samsung Rogue user manual. However, I still can’t have a good command of handling it. When I browsed, I found that someone asked how to reset Samsung Rogue. Thanks to someone, he has given the detailed steps about how to reset Samsung Rouge. If you find it necessary, why not continue reading? Read carefully when necessary.

Reset samsung rogue

to the factory default settings, follow the steps below:

  1. From the standby screen, press Menu
  2. Press Settings & Tools
  3. Press Phone Settings (7)
  4. Press Security (7)
  5. Enter the lock code, default password is the last 4 digits of cell phone number
  6. Press Restore Phone (5)
  7. Press Yes to confirm resetting the handset to factory default settings
  8. Press OK at the reprogram prompt
  9. Enter the lock code, default password is the last 4 digits of cell phone number

That is the way to reset Samsung Rogue. If you are still troubled with something about your samsung rogue reset, let us know.

Personally, I must warn that your all date including pictures, videos, music, messages, contacts, and downloaded applications which stored in your phone will disappear. You must chew over before reseting.

  • you meant you forgot your phone password you have personally set? if you are in this case, just go to a professional special repair shop near you. you need to restore your phone CPU, or whatever.
    If you can tap into your phone to make a call or send messages, while you want to reset it, just go with the instructions listed.

  • the touch screen buttons on my rouge are all slowly not working. what can i do to fix this?

    Comment by Jordan Y — April 3, 2011

  • My rogue is a piece. I’ve had it for almost two years and the touch screen doesn’t work at all anymore. I’ve had no problems with it working, but my touch screen is dead. I wish it had a reset button behind the battery like every other phone.

  • do it have one? anyway, you should be happy since your device has been working for two years.

  • Rogue-u960= when i press menu it flashes for a sec then disappears, therefore i can not reset phone, and the same with message button, but contacts and dialer button works any ideas?

  • Hi. I need the screen copies and instructions to wipe the Rogue clean of personal data back to the factory settings. My phone works, but the screen is black. By memorization I can answer a call because I know where the touch locations are to retrieve that call. However, I would like to get a new phone and need to wipe this one clean as I’ve been instructed. Please provide visual screen detailed instructions to ERASE ALL: contacts, phone call histories, text messages, pictures (if any), personal info and any other places that may contain non-factory settings. Again, phone works, can’t see screen but touch locations work, just need visuals to know where to touch on the screen to clear everything. THANKS.

  • well, it sounds really frustrating since you can not use the touchscreen. as a matter of fact, you have the access to perform a hard reset via the power on/off key. we will try to provide you the solution to perform a hard reset as soon as possible. anyway, thanks for your feedback.
    you wanna a new cellphone? which kind of phone you want to purchase? nothing stored into your SD card will affect. the issue in question is the contacts, cellphone call histories and web histores, while, you can delete these manually.

  • Hi. Thank you for the phone number to contact Samsung Customer Service. I called them today to help me with my Rogue touchpad and slide cell phone and they provided me a code to enter on the slide keypad to wipe the cell phone. Being I could not see the screen at all at this point, but the cell phone still took pictures and I could still answer calls, this was the best way to wipe it back to factory settings. Thank you so much!

  • ok, that sounds pretty nice! you said you was about to buy a new cellphone? is there one ideal in your mind? how about this new LG smartphone-LG Enlighten for Verizon Wireless

  • I would also like to buy a good copy of the USER GUIDE for my Verizon Samsung U960 Rogue. Can I order through Verizon or better to order through Samsung?
