    I have a Samsung galaxy s3 that I want to sell. There is some personal images + videos that I want to remove first.

    Also Gmail and viber is attached to this device, these accounts can no longer be linked to the phone. The simcard is locked (but I can get some access through the usb connected to the computer), how do I return this thing to "factory default" or as close as possible?

    I want the files to be permanently deleted. Not possible to recover.

    Any help and suggestions for tools and where to look for files is appreciated. Thanks.
