    Question Hard reset?

    Advertisement



    Hey folks i was wondering how do you give your Curve a hard reset? Do you pull the battery out?? I read that ALT SHFT DEL is the same but i think it doesnt do anything. LOL.

    For example, whenever i get a text or email message, I dont see red star on my message indicator, its just a plain yellow envelope. i did that ALT SHFT DEL, didn't do any so i pulled the battery out and viola! lol worked. So what is the difference?

    Thanks guys, i havent been on here forever! i miss the stacks

    Here's the correct way for hard reset which is very important:
    Press and hold power button, wait for device to shut down, then remove and replace battery.

    Or you can download Soft Reset app at: http://www.geekandproud.net
    OTA or via PC

    On a Curve hold the LEFT ALT and the RIGHT Shift Key and the Right Delete KEY all at the same time. Hard Reset without opening the case.

    Does the hard reset app work for the Curve? I know it was designed for the pearl.

    BTW this isn't a hard reset it's only a soft reset. A hard reset is when you wipe your device via the security option and then wipe handheld

    That's so true! Lol. I was referring to the soft reset. Thanxs!
    By the way the soft reset works great on the curve!

    ^^Yep, I love that app and could not live without it. Much safer for your BB
    and easier than doing an actual battery pull.
