    How do I hard reset my i760 to factory settings?

    Hold the red reset button found directly below the left soft key on the slide out keyboard and the center button (Action Key) of the four way cursor for a few seconds simultaneously, after holding for a few seconds release the reset button first.

    Second option is in the WM6 software, go to Phone Settings found in the System settings area, and use the Clear All Data function. This will clear all data and applications stored within the phones internal memory, but retains previous phone settings and preferences.

    For more information on hard resets, check out this thread: Hard Reset question

    Thanks go to Dangerous for getting an early copy of the manual in this post:

    Samsung i760 - Release/Rumor Thread

    Here are some interesting facts from the manual:

    1. Voice Command will come with the phone
    2. MMS is on the phone
    3. Soft lock is improved
    4. WM6 still has the stupid balloon bubble
    5. Shows an icon for Bluetooth DUN
    6. Different Power connector (Still proprietary)
    7. Speaker is located on the back side of the top portion, directly behind the number pad
    8. Reset button is located on the slideout keyboard below the left soft key.
    9. Hard Reset your phone by holding the reset button and the center "action key" of the four way cursor, after holding for a few seconds, release the reset button first.
    10. No IR Port, all beaming done via Bluetooth (although this is good, because now you can beam and accept contacts from non-PDA phones as long as they have the Bluetooth profile, still sucks no IR port)
    11. "The i760 supports the 802.11b protocol stack." - Users who tested the i760 report that the test i760 unit they had supported 802.11b and G. This is not verified but comes from a trusted member of this site.
    12. The SD I/O Slot on the right side of the i760 is for use with an SD (secure digital) card. SD cards come in a variety of sizes and can hold up to 2 GB of data. Users who tested the i760 report that the test i760 unit they had supported cards up to 4GB. Of course, we are not able to verify this yet.

    PIM data is stored in a single file named PIM.vol, which is stored on the root of the i760. You make back-up this file manually by copying it to a storage card or computer. You also can delete the file if you want to erase all of your PIM data; however, before doing so, you definitely should keep a copy of it on the storage card.
