Default How to do a soft reset in Stratosphere?

As strange as it may seem, I find nothing in the Stratosphere user manual about how to do a soft reset. Factory reset, yes; but I don't want to wipe out everything. I just want to try to get rid of an obnoxious piece of code that tells me my post has failed (when it actually hasn't.) Is the answer to merely remove the battery, wait half a minute, and reinstall it? Thanks.

fred that is the only option right now. when you remove the battery it helps remove cache stored in the memory banks and makes your phone run faster. there is no such soft reset, only factory reset, so if it is a malicious code a factory reset is what you want to do.

On all the smart phones and tablets I have used when you power on after a full power off (performed by holding the power button down until the menu - power off, airplane mode, and silence sound appears and then touching power off followed by touching OK on the next screen) the system will perform a soft reset. Some devices will also respond to holding the volume +, vol - or both and then pressing the power on after a full power off and bring up a menu of options including a soft reset, hard reset, and others.
