    Blackberry Torch 9850 from Sprint... Thoughts... How to Reboot?

    I finally made the leap and got myself a new phone. I went from the 8330 to the 9850 Torch from Sprint. It is taking me a while to get use to the keyboard, but I am starting to like it. I have found that a lot of the apps that I use do not work with the 9850 (i.e. Google Voice, MyFitnessPal, etc.). There are no themes to pick from on BB World, but I am sure they are coming as others carriers pick up the 9850.

    Anyway, the reason I write is to see if anyone knows how to reboot the 9850? On my 8330, I knew the key combination to reboot, but on this new one I cannot find the key combo. I have done a few searches, but nothing is showing up for it.

    Well if it follows the pattern of the BlackBerry Storm series, then there's no way to do a soft reset on a touchscreen only phone which also includes the BlackBerry Torch 9850/9860. The only way to do a reset would be to remove the battery from the phone.

    Ouch! I have a case and it makes it difficult to remove the battery. I tried another app that I found on appworld, but it did not appear to reboot the system. Crazy! I tried all key combinations I could think of to try and reboot it. It seems like there has to be a way to do so.

    Thanks for the info.

    I use QuickPull from AppWorld: https://appworld.blackberry.com/webs...t/1300?lang=en
    It works well, I've had zero problems, been on my phone for several months now, it's free and you can set it to simulate a battery pull monthly, weekly, or daily.
    And don't let anyone tell you that it is not like an actual battery pull because it does the same think that a physical pull does, re-boots the phone.
