    Are you in a poor coverage area?

    I've had to soft reset for the sprint nav software because it froze up but I haven't had any issues with email.

    In my place running on airave and yes I know no EV but never stopped anything before from coming in, we've had some bad weather here today on and off but i don't think that would do it ... just seems weird especially with my tasks which never notified me on the day i set it for, but notified me today after a soft reset ...

    My Pre was roaming all morning today at my work. I reset it and the roaming has been reduced. My reception still sucks though.

    It's common in smart phones. Try a BB, you have to do a daily battery pull to stay running right. There's even a program called "QuickPull", which will simulate a battery pull for you. That's when you know it's bad...

    All OSes (Windows, Macs, smartphones, etc.) need to be rebooted at some point. I've always made it a habit to reboot all my machines every morning. Old school mentality I guess.

    And just from personal experience, 95% of computing issues get fixed with a reset.

    what's easiest way to do a soft reset? You don't lose ANY data, correct?

    Hold down the "Orange button", "Sym" and letter "R" to perform a soft reset. No, you don't lose any data.

    Thanks for that one. I only knew to hold down the power button for a couple of seconds. I know that only turns off the phone but I just turned it right back on. This way is better.

    My GPS stops working all the time unless I reboot.

    The pre has some memory issues which cause the need for redets with moderate to heavy use. It shouldn't be that way so no its not normal to have to do resets every other day. Windows mobile mobile used to have issues like this but my iphone wouldn't require a reset for a month or more.

    I guess the question is whats better for the phone to get things running right, the turn off and on again technique or the soft reset ??

    I never had to do that with my Treo 700p. The only time I had to reboot it was when it locked up (or it rebooted on its own) which was not that often.

    Wow! You had much better luck with your 700p than I had with mine!
