The only way to get a full reboot is to remove the battery. I have the Zen theme for my 7130e and it has an option for Full Reboot, but I notice it doesn't do what pulling the battery does to clean up the memory or other issues.

On the full QWERTY models you can hold down ALT/CAP/DEL for a soft reboot. Usually resets all the items that need to be reset.

I wish the cover was easier to take off on the 7130e ... eesh. They might as well have welded it shut.

Careyana, once you do this soft reboot press that same key pattern when the hourglass comes up and it will do another reboot which is the same as taking the battery out for a hard reboot. Hope this helps.

A battery pull reset will almost always be your best bet option.
