Strange indeed soft reset works here fine but used it only a few times
Maybe a hard reset forces to reinstall the o/s correct and solves you
what the hell are you people talking about?
a soft reset is a way to restart the phone using an option in the phone, perhaps an app
so when there's the option to POWER OFF the phone, there is the option to RESTART the phone
That's what they call a soft reset via the power button LOL
You get the option to power off the phone ( which is actually a two way step for a soft reset )
He actually states that this option doen't work for him, because the phone just times out ( or in other words it just freeze) after making the choice in the pop menu...
Despite all work arounds offered here it should work on every Desire
(within a few seconds)
If it doesn't then a reinstall of the software could be to rule out a software issue in the trouble shooting process.
But before that I should un install every non default software package,
and try the soft reset function to see if the phone powers down in a few seconds.
my reply where ment for d-fens his questions!
