Samsung Gear S3 frontier / Gear S3 classic - Restart / Soft Reset

A soft reset can resolve issues like continuous resetting, rebooting, device crashing, freezing, won't ring or vibrate, can't make or receive calls, device locks up and screen doesn't respond.

Note Notes:

  • A soft reset (turning the device off then back on) is similar to restarting a desktop computer and is one of the first steps in troubleshooting a device. In most cases, a soft reset won't affect data on the device unless the battery is very low.
