    Default Reset or alt cap del for OS 7

    Is there a "soft reset" on the 9850 Torch such as ALT + CAP + DEL?

    If you are in an app that freezes (they ALL do even IF OS7 does it LESS) an APP to reset is NOT helpfull...ALT>CAP>DEL always works AND it uses NO memory

    This is not applicable to devices like the Storm or Torch 9850 that do not have a keyboard, right?

    There is no keyboard shortcut to re-boot a 9850. You must use a third-party app or pull the battery. Same as it was on the Storm.

    Actually there is a "soft reset" for the 9550 and the 9850 device

    open the call screen and dial ##000000
    scroll down until you see the sectional labeled "A-Key"
    the SIP User ID will be xxxxxxxxxx@vzw3g.com (where the x's are your cell number)
    the SIP password field is blank

    enter 'vzw' without the quotes and lowercase to the SIP password field
    hit the menu button and click Save

    the device will restart

    That's a great one, but seems unique to Verizon. Any idea how it would be done on another carrier (eg. US Cellular)?

    not really sure. the 9550 was unique to Verizon and it worked when i still had that device ot just worked for the 9850
    perhaps check with the provider and see if they know it

    once the device restarts the SIP password field is blanked out again

    Definitely haven't heard or seen that one before...but good grief, it'd be faster to just pull the battery.

    Just to eliminate any confusion for those who haven't tried before...

    It's Alt + Right Shift + Del for a soft reset.

    this is for those devices that dont have a physical keyboard.
    the above shortcut you mentioned doesnt work on touch-screen devices like the 9550 or the 9850

    3rd party apps are the way to go. i use restart me or meterberry to do this since my otterbox is a PIA to remove if needed to battery pull.

    Holy crap, it worked! Glad I used the ole search button here on CrackBerry. This method may be a bit slower, but not by much, plus, if/when I get a case, this will be way more convenient then taking off the case, and doing a battery pull.
    Yes, we do have CrackBerries in Montana. Go Griz!!
