    1. Turn the Droid off. If it won’t turn off, take the battery out then place it back in.

    2. Open the keyboard and press the X key while pressing and holding Power. The device will power on. Keep holding the buttons down until a yellow triangle appers.

    3. Press the Camera and Volume Up buttons at the same time to get to the menu.

    4. Use the direction pad to the right of the keyboard to select the Format option.

    Noob question but what will a hard reset do exactly? I come from BB and soft resets were common, but hard resets sometimes meant bad things.

    Thanks!

    I believe it brings your phone back to factory settings.

    I believe if you go to "Settings" then "privacy" you can do a factory reset much easier.

    Is there a soft reset? On the G1 you could press a button combo to reset it.

    If you have a problem where the phone gets stuck booting, and can't get to that option the manual way will still work.

    To perform a soft reset, on the keyboard press shift + alt + del, and it should reboot for you.
