O2 XDA Argon soft reset
Resetting Your Pocket PC Phone
Occasionally, you may need to reset your device. A normal (or soft) reset
of your device clears all active programme memory and shuts down all
active programmes. This can be useful when your device is running slower than normal, or a programme is not performing properly. A soft reset is also necessary after the installation of some programmes. If a soft reset is performed when programmes 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 programmes
you installed, data you entered, and settings you customised on your
device will be lost. Only Windows Mobile software and other pre-installed
programmes will remain.
To perform a soft reset
• Use the stylus to press the RESET button found at the bottom of your
device. Your device restarts and displays the Today screen.
