Exclamation What exactly does SOFT RESET mean?

Please Login to Remove!

I gotta few questions....

1) I just wanted some clarity to what everyone means by "soft reset?" My understanding is this is powering off the device thru the applications menu by selecting "FULL POWER TURN OFF." Please correct me if i'm wrong.

2)Also, there has been alot of talk about pulling out the battery. The last time I pulled my battery out was maybe 3 weeks ago. My pearl is working just fine. Is pulling out the battery labeled as a "HARD RESET?"

3) I also heard some talk about a HARD RESET APP (so we dont actually have to pull out the battery) true? If i got this confused with someone else, then please explain what the app actually is....

Thanks all!
