    Are you looking to reset or wipe?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~yea, just pull out battery while the device is on and then wait 30 second. Put it back in. It helps fix a lot of problems. I recommend doing this once in a while, just to keep your device running smoothly.

    Technically, a hard reset is returning the device to factory defaults...

    Go to setup>security>general settings>hit menu and go to wipe handheld...
    Best idea to do a back up before hand...

    If your just trying to reboot your phone just hold alt shift and the enter key do that twice and your phone will reboot.

    Re: Hard reset

    Model: 8700c
    [I'm a Newbie to BlackBerries in general, not just the 8700c].

    My blackberry is "stuck"? So I think that I too need to do a reset of some type:
    (I don't know the difference between "Hard Reset", "Wipe", etc).

    Details: The screen on my blackberry is cycling between two states:
    1 - Blank (dark and looks like the device is off).
    2 - White background with a rotating hourglass.

    I can't seem to get it to stop. I've tried:

    1) Remove battery and replace it after 30 seconds.
    1a) Remove battery and replace it after 10 minutes.
    2) Remove battery and hold power button down for 1 minute.
    3) Press ALT - CAP - DEL twice (simultaneaously) (after putting the battery back in).
    4) Press ALT - NUM - DEL twice (simultaneaously) (after putting the battery back in).
    5) Soaked it Coca-cola overnight with the back cover off. (Just kidding).

    I don't know if this information is relevant, but...
    This problem started after I tried to "upload" a couple of applications with the "Desktop Manager / Application Loader". These were sample applications which came with the JDE ("Hello World", etc), which I modified in the JDE. (Hmm, sounds like I screwed something up).

    Anyway, I just want to "reset" it somehow. I don't really care if I reset everything back to the default/factory settings, or not. (I don't have much/any data on there to lose). It looks like none of the "normal" ways of resetting it have work. Doesn't seem like it should be that hard to reset a Blackberry. Hopefully I'm just overlooking something really simple. Anyone have any ideas?

    Much thanks for your time.

    Thanks Cherrichiodo,

    You got me started in the right direction. I meant to reply a few weeks back, but the forum was down when I tried to log back on. Anyway, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

    Re: Hard reset

    Hi romeo204,

    Cherrichiodo was right. In my case, I needed to reload my blackberry's "operating system".
    I'm guessing that you need to as well. I'm guessing that doing so will cause you to lose everything on your blackberry device.
    However, I don't know of any other way to get your blackberry working again.

    I don't remember all the details of how I did it, but here's what I remember:
    Look at Cherrichiodo's March 28th entry in this thread.
    If you click on her second link "How to: OS 4.x Upgrade for your Blackberry", it will take you to another thread.
    When you get there, look at twheeler's first entry. That pretty much explains how to do it.
    Especially his 3rd step. It has a link which will take you to: another thread called:
    General and 4.1 Blackberry OS Guide / Advantages of upgrading to RIM's Blackberry 4.1 OS
    When you get there, look at Hayden's first entry.
    If you scroll down, you'll see a bunch of links to varios carriers (cingular, verizon, etc).
    Pick yours, and it will take you to a different site outside of BlackberryForums where you can download the latest version of the OS for your BB device.
    Anyway if you follow the instructions in those twheeler's and hayden's threads, it should work.
    It was a pain in the neck, but I don't know of any other way.

    Good luck!

    SIDE NOTE:
    My problem Was that I was creating java applications with Blackberries JDE 4.2.
    The problem is that those applications will work only on Blackberries with 4.2 "operating system".
    My Blackberry (8700) has 4.1 operating system.
    So when I loaded a 4.2 application onto my 8700, it went haywire.
    This is just a guess, but maybe the theme or whatever you loaded is only for a higher version of the OS than what your machine is designed for.
