A 'massive' reboot? Never heard of that....

However, you can do a hard reboot by removing the battery while the device is on. Keep the battery out for about 10 seconds or so and then put it back in.

I agree, it should be, but RIM's KB article on a reset doesn't agree. They say specifically a battery pull is a hard reset and the ALT+RIGHT SHIFT(CAP)+DELETE is a soft reset, doing slightly different things.

A great topic of debate for when friends are over.

its interesting they say that, because the softreset program doesnt free up nearly as much memory for me as a hard reset or the alt+shift+del. *shrug*

So are you saying the Soft Reset app needs an 'eject' option, Sith?

Works for me! and actually...the software option wont work like that, but i think i could probably replace the second soft key with a spring and make an eject button! lol. i will next time i upgrade my device!

Ok, seriously folks...I have been LOVING SoftReset by Metsfan on my 8100. Are you telling it is not a "true" reset? Will pulling my battery yield a different result?
