    Could depend on the OS version. My GB phone is Settings > SD & Phone Storage > Factory Data Reset.

    Don't forget to remove your SD Card if you are keeping it. Otherwise look for the Erase SD Card option too.

    I once tried resetting my Samsung Andorid to factory data reset but it did not wipe out the data in it. My photos were retained that's why I had to erase it one by one.

    Could those have been stored on the SD Media Card?

    Setting the Android phone back to its factory defaults is simple enough, but ensuring the phone is completely clear is a two-step process.

    And what would those two steps be?
