I just did a hard reset because my phone prompted me to do so. Even though I re-started my phone, the only option I had was to reset.

Now, my phone is back to its factory settings.

How do I restore my phone back to a certain date?

Did you create a backup of your important files before you completed the hard reset?

My phone wouldn't allow me to do anything else other than a reset, so no.

I'm actually looking to restore it back to a certain date if possible, like I would with a pc.

Sadly, unless you have backed up your data at some point in the past, creating a 'restore point', your phone will not be able to retrieve your lost files. I think this kind of thing happens to everybody once, and it is miserable when it does :(

For the future, I recommend backing up your files with an app like Helium. You can read about it here:

You can use the same process for the backing up the Galaxy Note 2 as for the S4.
