How to Hard Reset the Samsung Omnia

Many people do not know how to hard reset the Omnia phone. The manual does not teach you the trick of doing this.

1.Press the soft reset hole beside your power button
2.Press the Call and Cancel Button together when you see the Samsung Omnia on the screen
3.The Reset Screen appear

This hard reset does not erase the 16GB memory. To reset everything, you could use the software hard reset by going to Settings > Hard Reset. There is also option to format the storage card.

If you decided not to format and press cancel, that will soft reset the phone.

Unfortunately it happened to me that my device couldn't boot up properly anymore, after I installed a stupid CAB file. The built-in hard reset couldn't be started, so the only solution was the one above.

Paul, this is very useful info, I suggest to pin it up in the main Omnia forum.

Since i can't see the picture of what the screen is supposed to look like, I not sure if my phone reset or not. I followed the instructions, but I never saw a reset screen, just the normal screen i see when I power the phone up, and I can't use the hard reset in settings, it never high lights the yes button. I hate this damn phone and am about to return it.

You must release reset button and keep holding dial and cancel button till reset screen appeared
