    Clear App Cache/Data:

    NOTE: If one of your applications doesn’t work as intended, crashes, freezes, or takes up too much storage inexplicably, you can try fixing these issues by clearing the app’s cache or data.

    WARNING! When you clear an app’s data, all your personal information stored within the app will be deleted, including login and credit card information, media files, profiles, save files etc. To avoid losing any personal app data, clear ONLY the app’s cache.

    1. Launch “Settings
    2. Go to the “General” tab
    3. Under “Phone management”, tap “Apps
    4. Select the desired app and tap “Storage
    5. Tap “Clear cache” to clear the app’s cache
    6. If clearing the cache didn’t help, tap “Clear data” > “OK” (check WARNING above)

    Clear the Phone’s Cache Partition:

    NOTE: If your phone crashes, freezes, runs out of storage inexplicably and you’re considering factory resetting it, you can alternatively try fixing these issues by clearing the phone’s cache partition. This can have similar results to a factory reset without losing any personal data.

    1. Launch “Settings
    2. If necessary, switch to “Tab view
    3. Access the “General” tab
    4. Scroll to “Phone Management” and tap “Storage
    5. Tap “internal storage” under “Device storage
    6. Wait for the device to finish calculating data
    7. Tap “Cached data” > “Clear

    NOTE: If clearing the cache didn’t help, you can visit this thread for a guide on how to factory reset your phone instead.

    Enable Safe Mode and Uninstall an App:

    NOTE: If you have installed a third party app and prevents you from removing it, you should be able to uninstall the app from within Safe Mode. In this mode, all third party apps are disabled by default.

    1. Press and hold “Power” on the home screen
    2. In the power management pop-up, tap and hold “Power off
    3. When prompted to “Restart in Safe Mode”, tap “OK
    4. Wait for the phone to finish rebooting in Safe Mode. If successful, you should see a “Safe Mode” watermark in the lower area of the home screen
    5. To remove an app, first open “Settings
    6. From the “General” tab, scroll to “Phone Management
    7. Tap “Apps” and select the desired app
    8. Tap “Uninstall” > “OK” to confirm
    9. To exit Safe Mode, reboot your device as you would do normally
