  • Locate the reset button hole on the HTC Prophet unit.
  • 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 Prophet

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

  • Power on the device, and then press and hold the CAM and COMM manager buttons.
  • Whilst doing this, perform a soft reset. The screen will go black except for some text saying: "All data will be lost". Press the "SEND" button (the green call button) and wait for the device to start up.
