In some cases, you can delete the forgotten password or lock pattern from your device as well.
If you are about to sell your phone and you want to wipe your personal data, or if your phone affected with virus you have to do a hard reset.

Far too often a series of phones becomes dull routine, with the device manufacturer simply churning out yet another familiar model rather than designing something new. HTC could have simply changed the colors, tweaked the shape, nudged up the camera quality, and added 4G for a perfectly acceptable Android successor to the My Touch 3G Slide.
At 3.7 inches, the LCD screen on the 4G Slide is a bit larger than the i Phone 4, which is a nice compromise for those looking for a bit of real estate, but without having to buy a massive 4.3-inch phone.
This may be a feature of the software, but we also found the touchscreen to be faster and more responsive than most.
Surprisingly, instead of relying on the name to sell the phone, T-Mobile and HTC have created a real bargain with the My Touch 4G Slide.Though we have some small issues with the phone, for (currently a Web-only offer), it’s one great deal.The My Touch 4G Slide is not a lightweight phone, by any definition. If you are using rooted device, always back up your EFS folder first, containing your IMEI info, etc.! All information is for devices with stock based ROMs.
