nope, you just pull out the battery, wait 10-30 seconds, then put it back in, that is considered a hard reset, no data is lost

You can just pop out the battery. It won't hurt it.

Yes, but is only a "soft reset". It won't go through the same boot as a hard reset with the battery.

If you press that combo again when your carrier logo appears, it will actually reset again as if it were a hard reset.

I do IT support for these and it's amazing how many women can't get the battery cover off .

Yes, however the original question was: "Is there a reset button?"

Alt-Cap-Del is as close as it comes to to having a reset button on a BB.

I'd like to assume that anyone with half a brain could figure out that a device is going to reboot if you remove the source of power for a few minutes, and then give it power again.

no reset button.. to hard reset, just take out the battery while it's still on.

Alt-Shift-Del twice works for me in most cases. The second reset is definitely different and takes much longer. There are a few situations, though, where a battery pull must be done.

Opera has the 3.0 beta and it's working rock solid and it's really fast. Lots faster than what came with my 8100.
