Hard Reset the Alcatel One Touch T’Pop to Factory Settings

The Alcatel OneTouch T’Pop is an elegant and modern device which quickly became popular thanks to its affordability. It was announced in January 2013 and released just one month later. It is pocket friendly and has a glossy finish. Despite the fact that it sounds like a perfect device for anyone, it can bring you dissatisfactions when freezing or not responding. However, if you find things running slower than usual or notice serious problems, you can appeal to a hard reset to factory settings.

This process will quickly solve any hardware, software, or wireless network related issues and will get your One Touch T’Pop up and running in no time.


The Alcatel OneTouch T’Pop comes with Android OS, v2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system and it has a single-core processor, clocked at 1GHz and backed by 256MB RAM. It is extremely lightweight, having just 118 g (4.16 oz). It promises smooth web browsing, as well as quick running applications. However, should you notice your device running at a dissatisfactory level, then you need to hard reset it.

Resetting the One Touch T’Pop

You need to keep in mind that a software refresh will delete all your personal data, as well as media files, with the exception of the version of the operating system. Also, it is worth noting that it is quite normal for the One Touch T’Pop to take several minutes to completely start up following a reset.

Here is the first method of restoring your Alcatel to its former glory:

  1. Turn off your device and hold the Volume Up key and the Power button until you see the Recovery mode.
  2. Navigate using the Volume buttons and select ‘Wipe data/factory reset’.
  3. Confirm by pressing the Power key.
  4. Select ‘Yes- delete all user data’ and confirm.
  5. Choose the ‘reboot system now’ option.

You can always go with the second method. Here is what you need to do:

  1. Switch on your handset.
  2. Go to the Settings menu and click on ‘Backup and reset’.
  3. Select ‘Factory data reset’ and tap ‘Reset device’
  4.  Click on ‘Delete all’, confirm this option and wait for your device to reset and reboot.
