    Soft reset and Quick pull are the same thing as cntrl,alt,delete. Basically the off/end button is no more than a soft reset or standby mode. The others are a hard reset just like you would get from a battery pull.

    Ill say this even though I have also yanked the battery out without thinking twice, however I wont be doing this with my new curve 8900 lol - I have a 8800 that I use for work and in a construction site if im not worried about getting dust on my old berry then what the hell would a yank do to it lol

    im kidding - power it down take the battery out - think of it as a pc you yank the cord you mess around with the hard drive

    yank the battery on the berry
    lets say your listening to the media player - who knows if you can corrupt your micro sd card, I know I have a 2gb card that some how was never detected anymore

    so go ahead and make your choice
    either way I only think it will produce lag time while loading the os once more

    along with a couple of more problems later on

    I've also had two CS reps tell me to be sure the phone was ON before doing a battery pull -- figure! Does anyone know for sure what the real story is?

    Well, the only explaination I can give is... If we use a computer power failure analogy for a battery pull, this doesn't make sense at ALL...

    I'm stickin to battery pulls then, I've always done that... Even with all my non berry phones without any problem...

    Well since RIM recommends that you power down first I think that's all the reason I need. The power outage analogy makes total sense. You could lose unsaved data, cause uncaught errors, damage the processor and possibly damage the board. This is just IMO but I see a lot potential for problems just pulling it out.

    i didn't see anyone mention the SoftReset App..

    I've used this on all my blackberrys without any issues so far! does wonders and saves me time from pulling the battery.

    i use the cap alt del any time it freezes, and as far as tech support goes , I believe thats the first answer they have to just about any issues, pull the damn battery.and yes i rip the cord out of my pc when it freezes too, as i am in a hurry and cant wait for it to shut down on its own and by that time its screwed any way . as far as data loss goes thats why i back every thing up thats at risk of loss,a wd network storage device is cheap and easy to use and also makes for less drives in the tower.. i have the otterbox and pulling the batt is a pain too say the least. so its the ole short cut for me and i see no reason to install an app that does some thing the device is already able to do on its own .
