    Sooooo... quickpull and softrest is basically the same right? I just downloaded quickpull and when i clicked the icon to try and restart my phone it prompted me to a white screen and then nothing happened for like 30 secs! I hit the menu button and clicked close. tried again... No luck. I was using softreset on my pearl it worked great. I think i will install that on my curve as well, i was thinking it wouldn't work with the 4.5 OS...But i just read that i will so yeah i think i will give it a try and let you all know if i have better luck with that...

    hi, i am new to the blackberry community and when i was on the windows mobile os there was a 3rd party application that allowed me to soft reset my phone(to free up memory) at a certain time every day.... i was wondering is there anything comperable on the blackberry os (preferably freeware) or is this as close as it gets? Any helpwould be apprieciated. Thanks in advance.

    3rd party apps to correct and OS issue is bad news IMO.

    The schedule right now has a small bug, you will have to set it each day till he has it figured out, he has acknowledged it

    It doesnt do a soft reset, it does a hard reset

    A hard reset is more effective.

    Soft reset is alt, right shift, del
    hard is the same, but when screen lights up, do it again.

    I use the Quickpull app in between battery pulls, i fimly believe nothing replaces the battery pull, especiallly when your device is acting up...

    Is there a time when you should do a hard reset rather than a soft?

    So they both do the same thing? Just free up ram?

    Pretty much, RIM recommends a battery pull, this app does the hard reset, you should be fine...

    Do you do the battery pulls scheduled or when problems occur?

    I've always applied the different reset methods to different circumstances. If I simply want to release tied up file free memory, I do a hard reset. If my Curve is acting up, I'll do a batt pull.

    I believe that because I am proactive and do regular memory maintenance, I rarely need to pull my battery because my device rarely acts up. Good thing because I use a sticky cover and hate to take it off. I am so used to my routine, I don't think I need an app to do it. However, it seems like a good product for those who like the comfort of knowing they can forget about regular resets.

    There is absolutely nothing risky about the app or the k/board method
    I tried ALT+SHIFT+DEL and nothing happens...is there a certain sequence or hold time or ????

    This is a sweet app for the pearl 8100 since it doesn't have the Alt shift del function

    I believe that is ALT+RIGHT SHIFT+DEL and hold it until the screen goes blank.

    Do be the same as a battery pull or Quick Pull you have to do it twice. Do once, and when the white screen appears do it a second time.
