How to perform a soft and hard reset on the AT&T HTC  Pure? Actially, it’s very easy, The below instructions should be used to reset the HTC PURE, just follow the  steps:

Notes: 1) The battery should never be removed from a Windows Mobile device when the device is powered on.  This causes the boot files to become corrupt and will cause the device to hang during the boot-up process. AT&T cell phone Questions&Answers
2) A hard reset basically returns your device to factory conditions, the device is restored to its default settings – the way it was when you first purchased it and turned it on. Any programs you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized on your device will be lost. Only Windows Mobile software and other pre-installed programs will remain. This is a drastic step, and usually only as a result of some kind of hardware failure or gross system error. It should only be used if nothing else worked to recover your device. AT&T HTC Pure Info

  • The hard reset did not work either. I’ll just have to get a different phone. I guess smart phones aren’t so smart after all.
