A normal reset is sometimes referred to as a soft reset. A normal reset stops all running applications but does not erase any programs or saved data.
Caution be sure to save any unsaved data before performing a normal reset since a normal reset erases all unsaved data.
To perform a soft reset:
- Ensure the phone is off.
- Press and hold the Volume Down and Power On buttons simultaneously.
Performing a Hard Reset on an Acer beTouch E210
A full reset is sometimes referred to as a hard reset. Perform a full reset when you want to clear all settings, programs and data from RAM.
Caution if you perform a full reset, your Acer beTouch E210 returns to its default settings and looses all information that is not recorded in ROM.
To perform a hard reset (clean boot):
- From the Application menu, tap "Settings".
- Tap "Privacy" then "Factory data reset".
- After this, tap "Reset phone" and finally "Erase everything" to format the phone.
