What Is The Difference Between Factory Reset And Hard Reset?
Removing your battery is equivalent to doing a soft reset (on devices where that is possible). It is totally appropriate to try this procedure in any problematic circumstance because it will not erase anything at all from your device. Your phone will return to factory default settings after a hard reset, restoring it to its initial configuration. The phone will be completely erased of all applications, messages, media, and personal preferences. Remember that updating your OS or firmware will not be removed if you reset your device. Following the reset, your Windows Phone will still be running the same version.
