What actually is a hard reset? A hard reset also known as factory reset, restores the device to its default settings just like the way it was when you first purchased it and switched it on. All installed programs, data entered, customized settings on the handset will be lost. Pre-installed programs and Windows Mobile Software will remain.
There are many who own the HTC Touch Pro 2, but have tweaked and customized their phone to the maximum. The device freezes and does not respond properly at times, requiring a hard reset for a solution.
Performing a Hard Reset on the HTC Touch Pro 2
You can perform a hard reset on the HTC Touch Pro 2 in two different ways:
- Go to the Settings Tab
- All Settings
- Clear Storage
- Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the hard reset
If your device is turned off or is not responding, press and hold the VOLUME DOWN, TALK/SEND, and END/POWER buttons until you see this message on the screen.
- This operation will delete all your personal data, and reset all settings to manufacturer default. Press Volume Up to restore manufacturer default, or press other keys to cancel.
Release the VOLUME DOWN, TALK/SEND, and END/POWER buttons.
To restore the operating system to the factory default configuration press the VOLUME UP button. To restore the factory default configuration and remove any operator customization press the VOLUME DOWN button, or press any other button to cancel the reset.
Both the processes through menu and keystroke are very simple and easy to follow. Those who have faced complications with their HTC Touch Pro 2 can now perform a hard reset without any tension. All you have to do is backup all important things that you desire to keep.
