Re: reset Z1 COMPACT.

Hi @JHON14, let me see if I can help out here.


I have translated your question to English as this is an International forum, please post any replies in English and it will be easier for me and other users to assist you.


If you are not able to reset your phone using Xperia Companion, you can always try to use Googles service called Find My Device. Simply log in to the service using the google account on the phone, Click on your phone if prompted and choose "Erase".


Let me know if that helped!
