    You don't have an item in the app list (right from main start tile screen) that is called Settings with a gear icon? And if you do and you open it, what shows up? You should have a long list of things inside including 'about'. Inside about is an option to reset your phone back to factory defaults (still same OS revision though).

    Yes, when I am on the main home page when I swipe in from the right side of the screen I have settings gear at the bottomwhen I click on the all I have for options are: Start (grayed out), Tiles and Help.

    At the very bottom of the pane I see my network, speaker, screen, notifications, power and keyboard.
