Managing Your Pocket PC Phone



5.6 Resetting Your Pocket PC Phone

Occasionally you may need to reset your Pocket PC Phone. A normal (or soft) reset

of your device clears all active program memory and shuts down all active programs.

This can be useful when the device is running slower than normal, or a program is not

performing properly. A soft reset is also necessary after the installation of some programs.

If a soft reset is performed when programs are running, unsaved work will be lost.
You can also perform a hard reset (also known as a full reset). A hard reset should be

performed only if a normal reset does not solve a system problem. After a hard reset, the

device is restored to its default settings—the way it was when you first purchased it and

turned it on. Any programs you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized

on the device will be lost. Only Windows Mobile software and other pre-installed programs

will remain.
