Update: Hard-reset your Pro when you get it (conspiracy?)

Okay, basically, I think the phones are delivered in a non hard-resetted mode.

I just picked up a replacement today, and when the Best Buy representative pulled it out of the pretty box, and hit power, it only took about 5 seconds to get to the screen calibration. I was really confused, because I had my OLD Pro sitting on the desk that I had hard-reset about two minutes before she pulled open the new box, and it STILL had not got to this point.

Case in hand, I strongly recommend that you hard reset your phone once, twice, or even three times after you purchase it. You don't have to worry about re-activating, because that happens automatically.

What it CAN fix:
- SOME earpiece/speakerphone issues
- Keyboard lag
- Strange quirks, such as screen rotation issues, and other oddities...

How to do it:
Method 1:
Start > Settings > System > Clear Storage > 1234 > OK

Method 2:
- Turn the phone (completely) off with the power button.
- Push and hold the VOLUME DOWN button and the CENTER/OK button at the same time.
- While holding those two buttons down, push and hold the POWER BUTTON until you see the hard reset screen. Follow directions.

Method 3:
- Hold VOLUME DOWN, and CENTER/OK. Reset with the stylus, then immediately start holding the POWER BUTTON.

Method 3 is the fastest/easiest way I have found.

Thanks,

Steven

Re: PSA: Hard-reset your Pro when you get it

One of the first things I did after I got mine from best buy.

I wonder if that's why I haven't been experiencing any of the issues other people have.

At any rate, the only reason I DID hard reset is because the weather wasn't working and I figured a hard reset would fix it.

I didn't think the reset button was part of the process. Just hold down the volume, OK, and then hit power.

Re: PSA: Hard-reset your Pro when you get it

I have not done a hard reset and I have had none of those issues.

On a side note I have had it since last thursday when best buy started selling it.

Yes active sync should backup your contacts if you have outlook installed, which you should have if you ask me.
