Hard Reset - DROID Pro by MOTOROLA

A hard reset may help with a blank or frozen screen, apps crashing or freezing, keypad/touchscreen problems, can't hear, device making noises, can't make or receive calls, and device won't sync. Our Troubleshooting Assistant can help you with other device issues if you aren't currently using the tool.

Caution Performing a hard reset removes ALL data including the Google account, system data, app data, app settings, and downloaded apps. Only perform this reset if absolutely necessary.

Note Disable Automatic Restore prior to performing a hard reset when attempting to determine whether a third-party app is the cause of an operating system / app issue.
