Resetting the NEC MobilePro 900C

Occasionally you may need to reset your MobilePro. For instance, you
may need to reset after restoring data from your host PC, after
modifying the MobilePro’s configuration, when you are unable to
power on using the Power button, or when the operating system stops
The MobilePro is equipped with a reset button that allows you to
restart the MobilePro operating system while preserving any saved
data. This method is similar to a “warm boot” on your host PC.
Note To ensure the safety of your information at all times, you
should perform regular backups of your MobilePro information to your
host PC.
Before using the reset button to reset the MobilePro, close any open
files or applications, if possible. When you reset the MobilePro, you
may lose open/unsaved files.
Follow these steps to use the reset button to reset the MobilePro.

1. Open the display panel and remove the stylus from its holder.
2. Power on the MobilePro.
3. Turn over the MobilePro.
4. Locate the reset button on the bottom of the MobilePro (see the
following figure).
5. Using the stylus, press the reset button. (You may need to press
the button more than once.) This resets the unit.

NEC MobilePro 900 hard reset

The reset button design requires the use of
the stylus. Only use the MobilePro 900c stylus to reset the system. Use
of another tool can damage the MobilePro.


General advice: Before you buy a new cell phone or new tablet, please try the following procedure to repair your device in a software way. First charge your battery, backup your important data if possible and in most cases take out SIM and SD card before doing factory reset. It is impossible to recover your data after doing a hard reset, so online backup is always important. For all of your data, a backup should be done on an external device, hard drive, raid system or media. With or without insurance, if your cell phone lost, damaged or stolen at least your invaluable data is backed up in a safe place. If you are about to sell your phone and you want to wipe your personal data, or if your phone affected with virus you have to do a hard reset. In some cases, you can delete the forgotten password or lock pattern from your device as well. All information is for devices with stock based ROMs. If you are using rooted device, always back up your EFS folder first, containing your IMEI info, etc.! Please also note, that a hard reset operation will not unlock your mobile phone's SIM lock or network lock, but it will remove the unlock pattern, remove the user password or PIN password (NOT the SIM card's 4 digit PIN code). Also note that the firmware version will not be affected in any way, it will not be downgraded, it will remain the same you are using and if you have rooted your device, root privileges remain also unaffected.
