Pocket PC FAQ Wiki > Soft Reset
A soft reset is when you stop all programs from running on your Windows Mobile device and reload the operating system and programs. This is equivalent to rebooting your PC. For Windows Mobile 5.0 devices or later, none of your data is erased during a soft reset because it is stored in internal flash memory.
To soft reset a Pocket PC, take the stylus and press the soft reset button.
To soft reset a Smartphone, turn the Smartphone completely off by pressing the power button and then turn the Smartphone back on.
Remove the battery from your device. Reinsert the battery and turn your device on.
Note: While a soft reset does not erase your data, you may corrupt your device if you perform a soft reset quickly after the system tries to save data. It is recommended that you wait approximately 30 seconds without using your device prior to performing a soft reset.
