| | BB = Confusing Reset Nomenclature
Please Login to Remove!
In the Palm OS there are three resets. The two important ones are simple. Either do a soft reset from the pin hole which re-initializes the system, like a pc re-boot, or depress a key combination for a hard-reset and wipe the device (like a pc reformat of hard drive).
But for the BB, I find Internet references to a hard AND soft reset where both use the same key combination (alt, cap, del) or the pinhole. And neither result in a loss of data. Why not call BOTH of these a soft reset?
The "true" hard reset is done from the desktop. I'm sure their must be a key combo, but I don't know what it is.
