How to do a hard reset ??

Excuse my "newbieness", but how exactly do you do a hard reset ? I've got a new TP and a lot of the threads I've read recommend doing this with a new phone. Thanks.

Re: How to do a hard reset ??

vol button down + OK button ( center ) + power button
hold them all at the same time and use stylus to reset your phone on the bottom

tricky but works just fine

you have to keep holding them until u see the msg on the screen

Re: How to do a hard reset ??

Using the stylus never seems to work for me.

What works for me is to turn the phone off (power is off, not just asleep) Hold the volume down and ok (center d-pad) and power button until the phone turns on and a message is displayed to press the volume up button to restore. Then follow instructions.

Re: How to do a hard reset ??

I've done 3 hard resets and never had to hit the soft reset button. While the phone is OFF....hold (in this order and keep holding), vol down, OK button, then power button untill a white screen with instructions appear then stop holding the buttons. Then it will ask you to hit the vol. up button to complete the reset.
