Resetting Your Samsung SPH-i700 Handheld

Under normal circumstances, you will not have to use the
reset button. On rare occasions, however your handheld may
no longer respond to buttons or the screen. In this case, you
need to perform a reset to get your handheld running again.

Performing a Samsung SPH-i700 Soft Reset

A soft reset interrupts the processing on your handheld. All
records and entries stored in your handheld computer are
retained with a soft reset. After a soft reset, the main phone
screen is displayed.

Un-screw the stylus, or use the tip of an unfolded paper
clip (or similar object without a sharp tip), to gently press
the reset button inside the hole on the back lower right
corner of your phone.

Perform a Samsung SPH-i700 Hard Reset


A hard reset erases all records and entries stored in your
handheld. Never perform a hard reset unless a soft reset
does not solve the problem. To restore your data after a hard
reset, you must perform an ActiveSync operation.

You can restore any data previously synchronized with your
computer during the next ActiveSync operation.

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

To perform a hard reset, press and hold the Handheld Power button , then press the reset button. Remove
the stylus or paperclip from the reset hole, then release the handheld power button.

Data saved in Safestore memory does not get deleted, even
if a hard reset is performed
