I am having a few problems with my phone and am thinking of doing a Factory reset and backup restore. Does anyone have any experience with this? If so could you answer any of the following.
1) The factory reset has two options - Factory Reset and Factory Reset with Data. What is the difference between the two?
Factory Reset = What settings are reset? I assume all installed applications / data is maintained?
Factory Reset and Data = I assume this is similar to the other reset but it also removes all custom data from the two internal memory areas (phone and mass memory)? Am I right in thinking that anything on the micro SD card is kept?
2) Phone Back up & Restore? Does anyone know what data/settings are backed up and can be restored? As an example, if I performed a full backup of my phone (including music and ringtones) and then did a full factory reset including data, would the restore put my phone back in exactly the same postition I was in when the phone was backed up and before the factory reset? Does this include homescreen and menu format changes? On my 6700 the restore would only restore apps / settings but not menu structure and I had to reinstall apps installed on my external memory stick (such as Opera).
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the update. So I am right in thinking that a delete data and restore only formats the phone internal memory (C: ) and mass memory (E: ) but leaves all files on the microSD?
Also do you know if the restore removes all created APN's. This is what I am hoping to achieve as there is a rogue APN that I am trying to delete.
Had some problems too and after backing up I did a factory reset. I have chose to back up everything (apps, settings, photos, etc) and after the rest, I have restored everything and some of the apps don't work anymore, they don't open
my friend have a E6 and he restored his phone using *#7370# method but his phones mass memory also got formated can any1 suggest me the recovery software to recover the data he forgot to took backup
After "delete data and restore" I am not able to add a home screen wallpaper or contact picture from the gallary, and I cant download ovi store. please help me.
