A reset of a BlackBerry smartphone is a troubleshooting method that will completely power off and restart the BlackBerry smartphone's operating system software and applications. It is a useful first step if a BlackBerry smartphone is experiencing hardware, software, or wireless network problems.
Note: A reset of a BlackBerry smartphone does not delete any settings or data.
There are two options for performing a reset: a hard reset and a soft reset.

A hard reset involves physically removing the battery from the smartphone and then reinserting it. To perform a hard reset, complete the following steps:
1) Remove the battery cover from the back of the BlackBerry smartphone.
2) Remove the battery, and then reinsert it after a few seconds.
3) Replace the battery cover.
A soft reset is a three key combination that resets the BlackBerry smartphone without removing the battery. It is only available on BlackBerry smartphone models with a QWERTY keyboard. SureType® technology and touch screen BlackBerry smartphones, such as the BlackBerry® Pearl™ smartphone, BlackBerry® Pearl™ Flip smartphone, and BlackBerry® Storm™ smartphone cannot be reset in this manner.
To perform a soft reset, complete the following steps:
1) Press and hold down the ALT key on the smartphone.
2) While holding down the ALT key, press and hold down the right-hand CAP key.
3) With both of those buttons still pressed, press the DELETE key. The display on the BlackBerry smartphone will turn off to indicate that the reset has started, and the keys can now be rIt is normal behavior

keeps rebooting, how do I do a master reset

The T-Mobile Dash™ includes a button sequence which can be utilized to perform a hard reset. This method is much more difficult to do but it will perform the reset if the menu options are not available.

Note: Before attempting this procedure make sure to backup your data using ActiveSync. All unsaved data will be lost.

Hard Reset
1. Power the device off by pressing and holding the Power key.

Note: If device is unresponsive remove the battery.

2. With the phone off press and hold both soft keys (The two keys directly under the screen, used to open menus.)
3. While continuing to hold the soft keys, press and hold the Power button for 1-2 seconds.
4. Continue holding the soft keys until you see a message that starts with This operation will delete….
5. Release the soft keys.

Note: If you see the standard boot up screen load steps 2 and 3 were not performed correctly.

6. A boot splash screen will appear, followed by a black screen prompting: Press Send to restore factory defaults, Other keys to quit
7. Press the Send key.
8. When prompted to powercycle device, select Ok

Note: Once the hard reset is performed it could take up to a few minutes to completely boot back up.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
