*What is Rebooting a phone?

Rebooting your phone simply means turning it off and turning it on back again. It is similar to the ‘restart’ feature in your desktop computer or laptop. Rebooting normally helps in speeding up the device in case of any lag or when it stalls and does not damage or erase device’s storage.

*What happens when you do “Forget Network”?

Normally used in connecting to Wi-Fi networks, forgetting a network from your device disables it from auto-connecting to the network while within connectivity range. Though devices auto connect only to the networks they were authorized to use already; choosing ‘Forget Network‘ disables this and requires users to manually type in the security key or password to start using the wireless network again.
