O2 XDA Atom soft reset
Resetting your Xda Atom
Your Xda Atom can be reset in the following two ways: a soft reset or a hard reset. Executing soft reset allows you to reboot your Xda Atom; only some data in opened programs may be lost. Your Xda Atom returns to the same status as the last time you used it. However, a hard reset turns the battery off, returns the device to its default
settings, and deletes all programs, files, contacts and other information you have saved to the device. It is therefore extremely
important to back up data to a storage card or your computer on a regular basis in case a hard reset has to be performed.
To perform a soft reset
If your Xda Atom responds slowly, stops responding, or freezes, you can soft reset it. A soft reset causes the Xda Atom to restart
and re-adjust memory allocation. Unsaved data in any opened applications may be lost. Use the stylus to press and hold the Reset
button, as shown below.

To perform a hard reset
A hard reset clears memory, deletes all data (such as owner information under Setup Wizard and AutoConfigurator) and restores the Xda Atom to its default settings. The action will erase all data that you have created and programs you have installed, but will keep all the preinstalled programs that were in the phone when your Xda Atom was first delivered to you.
Press and hold the power button, and then use the stylus to press the soft reset button at the same time. Be sure you have backed up all your data in an mini SD card or on your PC before performing a hard reset.
