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

  • With your thumb or finger, open the back cover by lifting up from the left side of the cover.
  • The RESET button is located at the bottom left below the battery compartment and SIM card slot. Use a small object with an

unsharp, pointed tip such as a toothpick to press the RESET button.

  • With the phone turned off, press and hold the VOLUME UP and VOLUME DOWN buttons, then press the END/POWER button shortly and release it.
