  • Use the stylus tip to lightly press the reset button. The pocket PC will restart and display the Today screen.

Performing a Hard Reset on a HTC Polaris

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 HTC Polaris returns to its default settings and looses all information that is not recorded in ROM.

  • Press and hold the GPS/Messaging and Internet Explorer buttons, and at the same time, use the stylus to press the Reset button at the bottom of your device.
