Default hard shut down vs battery removal

Please Login to Remove!

the process as i understand it to restore file memory is to get rid of any appl not used, languages, etc., and then do a "hard shut down". my question is, apart from removing the battery, how else can you do a complete shut down/power off?

Pulling the battery is the best way that I know of becase when you turn off the phone there are still programs running in the background. Depending on the BlackBerry Smartphone then you might also because to hold ALT, SHIFT, DEL. Let me know if that works.
