O2 XDA Atom Life soft reset


Resetting your O2 Xda Atom Life

If your O2 Xda Atom Life responds slowly, stops responding, or freezes, you can reset it in two ways: a soft reset or a hard reset.

Soft reset

A soft reset causes the O2 Xda Atom Life to restart and adjust memory allocation. Your O2 Xda Atom Life returns to the same
status as the last time you used it, though unsaved data in any opened applications may be lost. To perform a soft reset, use the stylus to press and hold the Reset button.

Hard reset

A hard reset turns the battery off, clears memory, deletes all data (such as owner information under Setup Wizard and AutoConfigurator) and restores the Xda Atom Life to its default settings. The action will keep all the preinstalled programs that were in the phone when your Xda Atom Life was first delivered to you. It is therefore extremely important to back up data to a storage card or your computer on a regular basis in case a hard reset has to be performed.

To perform a hard reset:

1. Make sure that you have backed up all your data in a Mini SD card or on your PC before performing a hard reset.

2. Press and hold the power button, and then use the stylus to press the soft reset button at the same time.
