What do I do to reset everything including the registry?

What do I need to do the clean everything in the phone including the registry so that it would be like brand new?

Also another question is:
I opened up the battery and I notice a white sprint sim card in it. I thought Sprint doesn't give out sim cards. Is it supposed to be there? What will happen if I take it out? Will it work on the network or be able to be activated?

Go to control panel and wipe the device. Enter the code and hit wipe. task 29 also cleans out old issues that you may be having.

Entering the numbers in cleanup does a hard reset.

Can you explain task29 to me please. Is it a program? Is it a hard reset or what does it do?

I suggest you do some searching and some reading in this forum.
Every question you have asked so far has been covered multiple times before.

Re: What do I do to reset everything including the registry?

Since I first just heard it I asked then searched lol. So I am guessing Task 29 is only for those who flash other roms so I guess its not needed. It clean out device memory completely which normal clear storage doesn't. But that's not what I need/ have cuz I didn't flash stock roms.

Also does flash memory card also clear it out completely or is there a program that does more than flash memory card (flash memory card by computer)?

There are two ways to hard reset the phone, which will dump the internal memory and return the registry to stock configuration.

One way is to go into Settings/System/Clear Storage. The other way is to hold the top power button down to power off the phone. Then press and hold down the phone send and end keys, and press and hold the top power button. You will see a white screen asking you if you want to reset the device. Press the volume up button to hard reset it.

The TP2 is a world phone. It has a Sim card to use it on non US GSM carriers by default. You can remove the Sim card and it will still work on CDMA Sprint.

Don't worry about Task 29 right now. You will need to read up on that when you are familiar with the phone and how things work.......

Re: What do I do to reset everything including the registry?

Either way task 29 probably won't make it better right now, since it has nothing to clean up due to no custom roms being installed yet. So I guess I do not need it unless I put a custom rom. Are there any other reasons to use it (like some apps) Other than after multiple installations of custom roms?

Think of Task29 like formatting a hard drive or sdcard. It wipes everything except the radio on a device. After you run it your device will not boot. It is used between flashes of custom roms to wipe the device clean.
