Can not hard reset my device.
Guys, I've tried both methods,

Turn phone off, press left key, right key and power button, all at the same time..

and also have tried

Turn the phone off, press left and right key and using stylus to press reset button..

Tried both so many times, but just can not hard reset my device. Any ideas where I may be going wrong?

Unhappy
I have the same problem. After two hard resets I can't hard reset. Problem is the phone restarts after entering PIN. I even tried an othen SIM card or no card at all but nothing happened. When I try to hard reset with the stylus it does absolutely nothing. If I try with the power button it doesn't hard reset, it starts normally. Any suggestions? Please help me, I've got the phone for just about 30 hours.

That's entirely right. If at the point that you get the display making you choose between reset or cancel, slide out your keyboard and press the given keys Should work just fine, have done it myself several times.
