Performing a Hard (Full) Reset on a Samsung Wave
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. A full reset deactivates the battery the power button does not function until the battery is reactivated.
Caution if you perform a full reset, your Samsung Wave returns to its default settings and looses all information that is not recorded in ROM.
To perform a hard reset:
- If your device freezes or hangs, you may need to close programs or reset the device to regain functionality. If your device is still responsive but a program is frozen, close the program using the task manager.
- If your device is frozen and unresponsive, press and hold for 8-10 seconds until the device turns off and on automatically.
