!! Performing a Hard Reset on a Treo 270

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 Palm Treo 270 returns to its default settings and looses all information that is not recorded in ROM.'''

'''To perform a warm (or safe) reset:'''

# Press and hold the top scroll button on the front panel of your phone.

# While holding down the top scroll button, use the reset tool (or similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press the reset button).

# When the system screen appears, release the top scroll button.

'''To perform a hard reset:'''

# Press and hold the power button on the top of the phone.

# While holding down the power button, use the reset tool (or similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the reset button.

# When the system screen appears, release the power button.

# When a message appears on the phone screen warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your phone, do one of the following:

* Press the top scroll button on the front panel of your phone to complete the hard reset and display the Digitizer screen.

* Press any other button to perform a soft reset.

Note: With a hard reset, the current date and time are retained. Formats Preferences and other settings are restored to their factory default settings.

# If the language selection screen appears, select the same language you selected for your desktop software. Choosing a different language may result in loss of data.
