What if you are about to sell your LG phone and get a new one? First concern that comes to your mind would be how to remove all your personal content from your LG mobile phone before giving it to anyone else. Even though there are a number of ways to lock your SD card or encrypt data, people who want to harm someone would eventually find a way to access your data on the device. Thus, it is crucial to remove personal data, like text messages, contacts, photos, videos and accounts info, before selling LG smart phone.

Few months ago, I took a fancy to a new smart phone. The fashionable appearance, clear screen and high pixel made me lose my heart to it at my first sight. I was so excited that I bought it at once without any hesitation. After taking this new member to my house, a strong bad feeling immediately comes to my mind: How should I do with my old LG mobile phone? It’s almost new and I had just used it for just less than three months! But anxiety was of no help, it just happened, indeed. To end such situation, I decided to resell my old LG device. I wiped all my text messages, contacts, music, photos, videos and other files and software from it after I backed them up on my personal computer. For the sake of absolute security, I took some special measures to have it reset back to the factory default setting. After what needed to be done, I began my reselling on eBay. Several days later, a potential buyer showed great interest in my LG phone and we began to discuss the details. And it ended with my mobile phone being sold out successfully.

So lucky I am? No! It’s just the beginning of the misfortune! Although I wipe off the entire data from my LG smart phone, the buyer could still obtain all my information including my personal content! A great number of people have the prevalent misconception in their minds that as long as we erase the data from our phones, the information would clear away in depth. In fact, it’s not the truth. We may fail to figure out the fact that why it still exists by some recovery software after being erased. But it is the case indeed.
