Batt Pull, QuickPull and Ctrl + RShift + Del
As far as I know there are currently 3 methods for resetting a Blackberry:
1) The good old traditional Battery Pull
2) QuickPull software, which simulates a battery pull, they say
3) Ctrl + Right Shift + Del, which also resets the device
What is the difference between these three methods (other than having to physically remove the battery in the first method of course)? Which has been proven to be the most effective?
Just curious about all this...
I think they are all the same....I have a storm so method three is a no go here but I use both 1 and 2 and they reset the phone the same way. Interrupt the power to the phone and it resets.

I've heard others say that Ctrl + Right Shift + Del doesn't completely stop and then restart all programs and settings (like permissions, etc.), and that the battery pull is better to make sure everything is updated and gets a fresh start (which simply turning the phone on and off doesn't do). I've also heard that QuickPull, and SoftReset are equivalent to a battery pull.

I usually go with QuickPull, since my main unit is a Pearl, and most of my devices are in some sort of hard case making it annoying to do a battery pull.
quickpull and battery pull here........sometimes it just shuts itself off though cause i let it drain all the way down
Hm, I also feel that the physical battery pull gives the best results, though I can't actually put my finger on what's different between all those methods. Maybe being physical actually made the difference this time.
Well, just install .140 on your storm and you won't have to worry about rebooting it yourself, it will do it every 10 min for you!
It has been said that it takes 60 seconds for the phone's processes to shut down fully after a battery pull. So if you pull your battery out for 60 seconds then re insert that would be your best option.
