Reset instructions for HP iPAQ Voice Messenger


Steps to Perform a Soft Reset

A soft reset stops all running programs, but does not erase any programs or saved data. Be sure to save any unsaved data within a running program before performing a soft reset.


  • Turn off iPAQ, remove and re-insert the battery, then turn on your iPAQ.



Steps to Perform a Factory or Hard Reset

A hard reset or a factory reset clears all the user-installed programs, configuration/data, and restores your iPAQ to factory settings. Be sure to save any important/unsaved data to an external memory source before performing a factory restore since all your data will be erased.


  1. Press Start > Settings > Security > Restore Factory Settings.
  2. Select Yes on the Restore Factory Settings screen and press Done.
  3. Press Reset on the confirmation screen. The device will restart.


Alternate way to Perform a Factory or Hard Reset
