I need some help with resetting my cellphone.

It is a HTC touch 2

There are 2 ways to do a reset
Soft reset ( unsaved work will be lost)
Hard reset (All personal data is deleted!)

Performing a soft reset

Perform a soft (normal) reset to clear all active program memory and shut down all active programs. This is useful when your phone is running slower than normal, or a program is not performing properly. If a soft reset is performed when programs are running, unsaved work is lost.

To perform a soft reset

1. Remove the back cover.
2. Remove the stylus to reveal the RESET button that is located at the bottom of the stylus compartment.
3. Use the stylus tip to press the RESET button.
Your phone restarts and displays the Home screen.
4. Replace the back cover and insert the stylus back into its compartment

Performing a hard reset

If a normal reset does not solve a system problem, you can perform a hard (full) reset. After a hard reset, the phone is restored to its default settingsthe way it was when you first purchased it and turned it on. You will lose any programs you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized on your phone, and only Windows Mobile software and other pre-installed programs will remain.

Warning! Your phone will be set back to factory default settings. Make sure that any additional installed programs and important data on your phone have been backed up before you perform a hard reset.

Important If Encrypt files when placed on a storage card is enabled, back up all files from the storage card before using Clear Storage, hard reset, or updating the operating system. Otherwise, you will no longer be able to access the encrypted files on the storage card. Use ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center to transfer files between your storage card and computer. After the procedure, copy your files back to the storage card.

To perform a hard reset
1. With the phone turned off, press and hold the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN buttons, then press the END/POWER button shortly and release it. You will then see this message on the screen.

Code: Select all

This operation will delete,
all your personal data,
and reset all settings
to manufacturer default.
Press volume up to restore
maufacturer default, or
press other keys to cancel.
2. Release the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN buttons.
3. Press the VOLUME UP button to perform the hard reset, or press any other button to cancel the reset.
