How to Reset or Reboot an HTC Touch HD


The HTC Touch HD cell phone is basically a mini-computer. Much like your PC, you need to occasionally reset or reboot your phone if the device is acting slow or odd. You might also need to perform a soft reset to restart the phone when it is frozen. With a soft reset, there is no need to back up the data or settings on the phone because this procedure will not erase any data.

Things You'll Need

  • Stylus
  • Flip your HTC Touch HD over and remove the battery case that is located on the back of the phone. The battery case should easily slide off with a little force.

  • Remove the stylus and use it to depress the "Reset" button. Alternatively, something small such as an unwound paper clip or flat toothpick could be used.

  • Identify and press the "Reset" button with the stylus. This is a small button located next to the SIM card slot. After pressing the Touch HD's reset button, the device will restart and you should see the home screen.

Tips & Warnings

  • If the HTC Touch HD is still acting up, consider performing a hard reset. This will erase all of the data in the phone and reset it to factory settings, so backup the phone before doing this.
  • If a soft and hard reset do not do the trick, take the Touch HD to your dealer for service/replacement.
