Perform Factory Reset (Optional)

If you are starting with a "new" PDA then you might be advised to perform a factory reset.  Follow the instruction here to do this.

NOTICE: When you perform a hard reset, you lose all the data stored in your device memory, and any programs that you installed on your device.
Perform a hard reset if:

  • You want to delete all the data stored in your device memory.
  • You forget your password and need to clear it.
  • Your device is experiencing severe operational problems and you have already attempted a soft reset.

NOTICE: It is strongly recommended that you back up your data before you perform a hard reset. See ActiveSync Help on your computer for
more information.
To perform a hard reset:

  1. Press and hold the power button.
  2. Using the reset stylus, hold the reset button for about 2 seconds.
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen.
