How To • Smartphone Soft Reset


Soft Reset
All smartphones have a soft reset function, which is similar to restarting your home computer.


WARNING:

A soft reset will cause you to lose all data that has not been previously saved.
Data already saved will still be intact.


Android
Most Android models: Power the phone off, then power the phone back on.

Android (others)
All remaining Android models use a simple power cycle to perform a soft reset. Just turn the phone off and then back on again.

Motorola Backflip
Power the phone off. Remove and reinsert the battery, then power the phone back on.

BlackBerry (QWERTY Keyboard)
Press and hold the ALT-CAP-DEL key combination. The display goes black for a second and your Blackberry resets.

BlackBerry (SureType Keyboard)
Press the ALT-CAP and right Shift-DEL keys. When the screen goes blank, release the keys.

BlackBerry (Touchscreen)
Turn the Blackberry off and remove the battery for at least 30 seconds. Reinstall the battery and turn the device back on.

iPhone 4 and earlier
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button. Hold both buttons until the screen goes blank. The white Apple logo appears as the iPhone reboots.

iPhone 4S
Press and hold the On/Off button and the Home button. Hold both buttons until the screen goes blank. The white Apple logo appears as the iPhone reboots.

Palm Pre
If the phone's menus are active, select Device Info, Reset Options, then select Soft Reset. If it is locked or frozen, hold the power button and cycle the ringer button on and off three times. If that doesn't work, press and hold the Orange, Sym, and R keys until the device reboots. Turn the phone off, remove the battery for 10 seconds, reinstall the battery, and power the phone up.
