Performing a Normal (Soft) Reset on a HTC Cavalier
A normal reset is sometimes called 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 restart your device:
- Remove the battery from the phone.
- After a few seconds, reinstall the battery.
Performing a Hard Reset on a HTC Cavalier
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 (Random Access Memory).
Caution if you perform a full reset, your HTC Cavalier returns to its default settings and looses all information that is not recorded in ROM (Read Only Memory).
The most convenient way to do a factory reset is via the device's settings. To perform a hard reset from the device's settings:
- Click Start, Settings and then Clear Storage.
- Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the Hard Reset.
