Can I Confirm That My Phone Was Set up as a New Device After a Factory Reset?

Answer

The best way to tell if your phone was set up as a new device after a factory reset is to see if there are any user-downloaded applications still present after the reset. If there are applications other then pre-installed apps from Google (Gmail, Chrome, YouTube, etc.), the manufacturer (Samsung, Motorola, etc.), or Republic Wireless, the reset was not completed as a new device.
