If you wish to clear all settings from your Droid X, you can perform a hard reset on the device. A hard reset is normally used when you are selling your phone and need to clear the data or if things aren’t working properly and you wish to start anew.
Hard reset before device boots
1. Turn the phone off.

5. Press the Power button to choose the selection.
6. Confirm the selection.
7. Select Yes — delete all user data.
8. Press Power to confirm.
The Droid X will then complete the hard reset.
