How do I factory reset my device and prepare it for sale?

The steps that need to be followed to properly reset a device before listing it for sale on Swappa can vary quite a bit from device to device. To assist with this, Swappa has compiled a list of blog posts and support pages from various device manufacturers to quickly reference depending on the type of device you may need to reset. If a product type is missing, and you have a link to the manufacturer's site on how to reset it, feel free to pass this onto us via our help form. Swappa will be happy to get it added here if it checks out!

Please note that Swappa is not responsible for any lost data. Be sure to take the proper steps to backup your device and transfer any files to external storage before following these reset instructions.
