Resetting Your Sprint PCS Vision Smart Device

Occasionally you may need to reset your Sprint PCS Vision Smart Device. A normal (or soft) reset of your PPC-6700 clears all active program memory and shuts down all active programs. This can be useful when the device is running slower than normal, or a program is not performing properly. A soft reset is also necessary after the installation of some programs. If a soft reset is performed when programs are running, unsaved work will be lost.
You can also perform a hard reset (also known as a full reset). A hard reset should be performed only if a normal reset does not solve a system problem. After a hard reset, the device is restored to its default settings — the way it was when you first purchased it and turned it on. Any programs you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized on the device will be lost. Only Windows Mobile software and other pre-installed programs will remain.

To perform a soft reset:

Use the stylus to lightly press and hold the RESET button on the bottom of your PPC-6700. The device restarts, and then displays the Today screen.

To avoid data lost, please turn off your device before performing a soft reset.

To perform a hard reset:

1. Press and hold both SOFT KEYs on the device. Keep these keys pressed, and at the same time, use the stylus to lightly press and hold the RESET button on the bottom of your device.
2. Press either Y to restore to factory default, or N to exit the hard reset process.
