How To – Part 1 (Blackberry tips) : Reset Your Blackberry Without battery pull

Its no news that RIM (Research in Motion)  aka Blackberry, have spread like wild fire in the Nigerian community over the last two years, most especially among the youths. It’s pretty sad that majority of the users are not knowledgeable about this “powerful device”. one of the issues we’d like to address is restarting your device, many people complain about having to take out their sophisticated casings in order to restart their phone.

Here’s a tip on how to do that without having to remove the battery. I assume most of us are familiar with this, but considering the number of times I’ve seen people go through the stress of  taking out their batteries. I’m moved to share this, here goes:

A soft reset is a three-key combination that resets the BlackBerry smartphone without removing the battery. It is only available on BlackBerry smartphone models with a QWERTY keyboard. Do not attempt to perform a soft reset on BlackBerry smartphones that are equipped with SureType® technology or the SurePress™ touch screen, such as the BlackBerry® Pearl™ Series, BlackBerry® Pearl™ Flip Series, and BlackBerry® Storm™ smartphone.

To perform a soft reset, complete the following steps:

  1. Press and hold the Alt key on the BlackBerry smartphone.
  2. While holding down the Alt key, press and hold the Right Shift key.
  3. With both of those buttons still pressed, press the Backspace/Delete key. The display on the BlackBerry smartphone turns off to indicate that the reset has started, and the keys can now be released.

Note: Some BlackBerry smartphones do not display the Alt, Right Shift, and Backspace/Delete keys in the same manner. However, the location of the keys does not change. Refer to the following graphic for key position:
