    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.

    Personally, I use a battery pull. IMO I feel it refreshes the phone better and starts up alot better. Not that its proven to be true, just personal preference.

    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 haven't seen any empirical data on this though.

    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.

    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.

    I'm 100% agree with this, but if I installed a app and we just need use it, I think you can use any app who simulate a quickpull. Am I thinking incorrectly?

    Apps:
    SmartAlerts, BerryBuzz, BerryWeather, MeterBerry, QuickLaunch, BBFileScout, XContact, GoogleSync, IM+, S4A, CopyAll, Forward with Edit, Wallpaper Shuffle, ScoreMobile, Sensobi

    No you are thinking fine I use a simulated battery for everything, except new os installs.

    I use Quick Pull and have it set for 5am scheduled reboots every morning. I love it.

    I am a huge fan of quick pull, but have been unable to get it to work on 5.0. Battery pull seems the only option at this point, but with sustained memory hold with the 5.0 I do not have to do a pull for days on end.
