    i am using the power off icon on my phone, it shuts off. when i hit the red phone button to power back up, it shows verizon screen then goes right to my homescreen. it used to show black screen with little clock winding and it would take a few minutes to power up and show the homescreen. i am running original OS .75.

    You are talking about 2 different things.

    1 - Powering off the phone (pressing the power button on the device) shuts the phone down (almost like hibernation for a PC). It powers back up very quickly. It is not a reboot.

    2 - A hard reboot (battery pull as most will call it) is actually rebooting the device. It has a whole boot up sequence which is the hourglass, white screen and 5 min load time you referred to in your message.

    I think the OP is trying to say that he used to be able to do a hard reset from just pressing the power off button. I didn't know that was possible...
