Hard Reset your smartphone

Recommended Posts

]Before you do a Hard Reset you will lose all information saved on your phone. Be sure to back contacts up using active sync, or another method. Some users like backup applications suck as sprite. I would not rely on this to save your contacts.

- You should only ever Hard Reset when your battery is full. It seems the phone remembers the level of charge when a Hard Reset is performed, meaning your phones battery will last a shorter time after the Hard Reset if you dont fully charge the battery.

1. Turn off the SPV.

2. Hold the 'Voice Memo' button down while turning on the SPV.

3. Press and hold the Action button (joystick middle button) for 2 seconds as instructed.
