    Unhappy Changed Phone Number... Phone Auto Wiped ?

    So I changed my Phone Number and after talking to Customer Service and being told to *228 option 1 after Im done to change my number over.. I do so and Gmail suddenly logs me out then phone resets automatically... after a long reset phone says it completed Factory Reset !!!

    Lost Everything not backup my Gmail and VerizoN, So basicly I got my contacts back but not my Apps ( Free ones , Paid ones had to redownload ) It even wiped out all my Apps I had on my SD card...

    Any one else heard of this happinging to others or your self after a number change ?

    Yeah it is a security feature. If you sell your phone,when the person goes to activate it, it deletes all your personal information just incase you forgot to do so. Very nice feature to have. Yes backups are your friend.

    Yeah, this is so people can't steal your phones and put their number on it but have all your apps, contacts, saved passwords, etc.
