Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I think that the first thing you would want to do is go to
Settings - Network Settings
and set up your network access and data service access, whether it is local WiFi, or 2G/3G/4G data service access.
After that, of course, set up email, e.g. if you have a Google Mail or GMail account, setting that up will make the Contacts saved with it accessible again, from its copy saved elsewhere (out on the internet in Google's servers.)
Before you reset the Android device, did you have email / internet access, there in France?
As for turning WiFi to On:
Home screen, go to
Apps, then go to
Settings, then slide the WiFi master control to On.
I hope this advice helps! if so, please rate my Answer. Thanks.
I regret that I cannot offer a phone call at this time.
To enable the WiFi, go into settings, and look for 'WiFi'. That word, no more, no less. It *is* that simple.
When you find 'WiFi' amid the settings - and probably amid the Network settings (look for that word, no more no less) - you turn WiFi to On. No more, no less.
Then when WiFi is On, you can connect to your local router, Orange box, whatever it is.
But you have to do it in that order, more or less.
If the initial questions do not allow your email address, something is wrong, period. It is obvious to me that your Android device does *not* have a WiFi connection, nor does it have a 2G/3G/4G data connection. It would not say 'out of reach' if it did.
So: in sum: simply:
1. turn On the WiFi. WiFi *is* WiFi. Sometimes called 'wireless' but that word is ambiguous and can mean something else.
WiFi, in the Settings, has an On/Off switch.
If that Setting is nowhere, really nowhere, to be found, or is grayed out and unusable, your Android device has 'broken' Wireless/WiFi circuitry in it, perhaps. And in that case, no reset and no settings will make it work. But I doubt that's the case.
