Filter Ruleset 3 enrollment instructions
!!!STOP - READ THIS FIRST!!!
When enrolling a device the MDM becomes the "Device Owner" which means you cannot un-enroll or reset your device without Phones4Work intervention. Please do not enroll a device unless you intend to use the MDM on the device. We WILL charge you a $25.00 setup fee if we need to "un-enroll" your device.
Phones need to be either new or factory reset and running Android 7 or higher. Please see this for more info.
Phones need to have working internet connection. If you are using a Prepaid Service Provider, you may
need to use WIFI to complete setup since a factory reset will also reset your APN settings.
While not required, notifying Phones4Work prior to installation will ensure a license is available. If no
license is available for your device, installation will fail.
The same $25.00 Configuration Fee applies regardless if you self-enrolled or if Phones4Work does the
Backup your data!
A factory reset will completely wipe your device. Make sure anything you wish to save is backed up
off the device, to either an SD-Card, computer, Cloud Storage Etc. Backing up to internal phone storage
will not be helpful since that will be erased when resetting your phone.
A very helpful app for backing up Text Messages, and Call Logs is SMS Backup and Restore found on
the App Store.
Contacts are usually backed up to Google. However, you need to verify that prior to performing a reset
since some phones, especially LG devices and some Samsung devices, by default, store contacts on the
phone rather than in the Google Cloud.
Photos may or may not be backed up to the Google Cloud. A safe bet would be to copy them to an SDCard
or computer before doing a factory reset.
Make sure you have your login credentials for any account on your device!
Usernames and passwords for any email accounts, any App accounts etc. If you have two factor
authentication for Cloudveil turned on, make sure you have the credentials since you will need that if
