Why doesn't the Factory Reset option show up in my phone's recovery mode?

On my Aqua 3G Mini, I have forgotten the lock pattern. I'm now unable to login -- even the Factory Reset option is showing the word NO.


When you start the Factory Reset process by following the steps in this great VisiHow guide, your phone makes sure that a Factory Reset is what you want to do by giving you a menu with a bunch of NO and one YES. To perform the Factory Reset, you will need to use your phone's volume keys to highlight the YES toward the bottom of the list. Then, you will need to press either your power or home button to confirm the selection. As soon as you press either the power or the home button, the Factory Reset will begin. This will wipe all of your phone's data, including the password, to unlock your phone and bring it back to its original settings. However, if you are unable to boot up into your phone's recovery mode, try the following key combinations to turn your phone on and boot it into its recovery mode:

  • Volume Up + Camera button.
  • Volume Down + Power button.
  • Volume Up + Power button.
  • Volume Up + Home + Power button.
  • Volume Down + Volume Up + Power button.
  • Home + Camera button.
  • Home + Power button.

If these combinations don't boot your phone into its recovery mode, you will need to contact the manufacturer of your Aqua 3G Mini to learn what the recovery mode key combination is for your device. If the customer service representative you speak to is unable to help you boot your device into its recovery mode, you may have to send it in for repairs, or you may have to get a replacement.
