Resetting the Vodafone VPx
You can perform a soft reset or a full reset. During a soft reset, the device is restarted and
only some data in opened programs may be lost. However, a full reset turns the battery off,
returns the device to its original factory settings, and deletes all programs, files, contacts and
other information you have saved to the device. Therefore, it is extremely important to back up
data to a storage card or your computer on a regular basis in the event that a full reset has to
be performed.


To perform a soft reset:


If your Vodafone VPx responds slowly, stops responding, or freezes, you can soft reset it.
A soft reset causes the Vodafone VPx 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 bellow.

To perform a full reset:

A full device reset clears memory, deletes all data and restores the Vodafone VPx to itsdefault settings.

Programs installed at the factory remain,
erasing all data that you have created and programs you
have installed.
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 a SD card or on your PC
before performing a full reset.

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.
