    What does "E2P (Custom/Full) Reset" exactly do?

    Dear Experts,
    Do you know what exactly these reset codes (i.e., "E2P Full Reset" and/or "E2P Cutom Reset") do to Samsung phones? Plesae explain the exact function of these codes if you know. I am particularly eager to know if they reset the phone to the "Factory Setting", or to a possibly different status.
    I've recently applied these codes to my phone (E730) to fix a minor bug in its answering machine. The bug was fixed, but the phone's behavior is not exactly the same as before. It actually works fine. It has only a very minor different reaction while I try to upload a Java midlet via usb cable, though, I've not any luck in doing so ! (neither before reseting the phone nor after it!!!) However, since my phone reacts differently now, I suspect that these codes have set somthing different from the factory setting.
    Please kindly comment on these RESET CODES, if you know. As I mentioned above, the phone apparently works fine, but I am very much curious and anxious to know if I've made a big mistake by using these codes!
    Thanks a lot.

    To my understanding of the codes, the Custom Reset resets the phone to the way it came by default "out of the box" in terms of the wallpaper, ringtone, message tone, backlight display time, and basically anything that the User could have changed.

    The Full Reset resets everything above to include the security code and deletes in some cases any files uploaded/downloaded to the phone such as ringtones, wallpapers and any new WAP/MMS settings that did not come with the original firmware.
    If you feel that you have to correct some of my posts for my capitalization of some of my words, then just bear with it. It's just a discussion forum where some may be limited by time to answer in well-versed and eloquent sentences.

    Thank you for your reply. Actually I've applied both. They don't delete anything from the "File Manager" section of the phone. They don't reset the password. They delete the phonebook, grouping information, and call timer. The CUSTOM reset is very fast. The FULL reset apparently formats the phonebook memory (or some other memory). It prompts not to turn off the phone while the resetting process is going on, and not to use the phone for one minute after the phone is turned off.
    Anyhow, I finally managed to upload Java midlets to the phone!!
    Thanks
