    It's not in the manual. I figured it out though.

    Hold Power and Volume Up for 5 seconds.

    Try AnReboot.
    It lets you reboot or reboot into recovery at the press of a button.

    What, if any, difference is there between a soft reboot and a hard reboot?

    I tried the volume + power and all it did was restart the phone. My problem is that I deleted some icons on the desktop area and now I'm not able to access email, facebook, or any or the news feeds or downloads. I'm hesitant to do a hard reset because then I won't have access to use the phone even for dialing out. :thinking:

    Soft Reset: Restart the phone and doesn't affect software and data installed or added on the device

    Hard Reset: Back to Factory settings - all data and apps not backed-up on your computer or on a memory card will be erased.

    I think this is a bit wrong, more like this:

    Soft Reboot = restarts your phone and apply any new settings or scripts

    Hard Reboot = restarts your phone as if it had been shutdown normally

    Resets have to do with options in the recovery console, reboots are done everytime you turn your phone off.
