HTC Magic/MyTouch: Hard Reset

If your HTC Magic (also known as the T-Mobile MyTouch) is freezing up all the time and being uncooperative, you may want to try a hard reset. A hard reset will wipe all of the data and settings off of the device.

1. Hold the left and right soft keys while pressing the Reset button. (The reset button is located on the back of the device.)

2. Press Send.

3. Press OK.

    I have a t-mobile mytouch G3 phone. Today I received a message about an software update. I agree with tahat but, after updating, my cell phone only starts until the green initial mytouch screen. It remains like that…. dead.
    I tried resetting …and continues death.
    Help me

    Actually, on the HTC MyTouch aka Magic, the reset button is a little hole right next to the usb (charger) port. Use something blunt, like the thread/hole end of a slightly larger sewing needle. Hope this is helpful.
