    Hi, just to check after the 'master reset' the phone still doesn't go further than the privacy statement?
    Or is it not finding your backup?
    Have you tried resetting the phone with the 'Windows Device Recovery Tool'?

    yea after the master reset and restoring my backup I go to windows insider program and click get started. it goes to the next screed to accept but it doesn't scroll down. I have not the recovery tool. I guess that might be the next step. I trying to hold strong with the windows phone but it drives me crazy with some of this and not have certain apps. would you have any instruction on how to use the recovery tool.

    Hi, the Windows Device Recovery Tool is fairly straight forward to use and you can just follow the prompts it shows.
    Download the program first onto a laptop or pc.
    Next run the app and connect your phone via a USB cable.
    The WDRT should detect your phone.
    The program then downloads the rom for your phone (may take a while) and reloads it wiping the phone.
    It will also update the firmware if there is an update available.
