My phone is hanging when i turn it on due to the phone lock (it wont let me enter in the password for some reason) - I am trying to reset using method 2) but it doesnt seem to work - does anyone know of another way to reset my Qtek 8500? Or perhaps I'm doing something wrong. Thanks!

Didn't work for me when my phone wouldn't get through the boot cycle without freeing up at a "Notification Error". My half-arsed but ultimately sucessful technique is covered elsewher in thei Forum under another post. Sorry about the cross-posting, I missed this one - doh!

The key to the hard reset using the softkeys is to only press the end/power button for a short time. Then a black screen will come up. Press 0 and the phone will do a hard reset.

Remember, start by pressing the two softkeys and then press the end/power button for a short time.
