Things to do after a master reset

Once you’ve performed a master reset, you’ll need to pair your phone and download your phonebook contacts.

If you experience problems with phone pairing after you install the update, try performing a “clean” pairing. First, delete SYNCTM from your phone’s list of paired Bluetooth® devices. Then pair your phone as you would normally.
