The Samsung Wave smartphone series was quite popular at a time as they had the classy design, excellent processor, BADA OS and good features.
However, the evolution of android OS took this BADA OS at the verge of extinction and from there it never recovered. Now, most of the Samsung phones have the android OS installed in them.
Still, many users have the Wave Series phones and are pretty happy with them. Though, the Wave phones too, have the issues of getting frozen or becoming unresponsive and there is only one solution of these issues and that is performing the hard reset.
Here below are some methods of performing a hard reset on any of your Samsung Wave smartphone among the likes of Wave 3, Wave M, Wave Y, Wave 2, Wave 723 and Wave 525.

Master Code Hard Reset
If the above method looks a bit long to you then, you can perform the hard reset in one dingle step and that is by entering the master reset code on your any of the Wave smartphone. Also, this method can also work while your phone is locked or you’ve forgotten your security code.
