I asked this in the S3 section but no reply yet... I did a factory reset a couple days after I had my phone flashed from Verizon to Selectel and next thing I know my phone was dialing and texting from another phone number and the dude that originally flashed my phone charged me $40 to re-flash the phone and said to never do a Factory Reset again.
I have flashed roms and stuff like that, but never a Carrier so my knowledge is somewhat limited... so if doing a Factory Reset doesn't wipe out that info, then how come my phone starting dialing and texting from another number? My number is area code 267 and it was dialing and texting from some 215 area code.
Matter of fact, yesterday I was noticing my phones network signal was horrible both inside and outside, so I called Selectel and they did something on their end and today my phone is texting from 215 again but dialing from 267. I am stumped.
