My Samsung Omnia 7 Just Got An Unplanned Hard Reset. Still No Sign For Copy & Paste…

Wp7 OTA Reset

Not sure if it has anything to do with the coming WP7 update, but my Samsung Omnia 7 just got a weird restart which ended up pretty badly with no less than a complete irreversible end-to-end definite hard reset.

No, I didn't get anything new, nor copy & paste, but what I did get is a complete DELETION of my camera roll pictures, settings and downloaded apps…

Yes, I'm totally pissed off at the moment, and although much of the data was backed up, or synced with the cloud, the pictures that were not shared on facebook are now lost…

Which brings up another thought: WP7 upgrade is close – backup your data.

Using 'Pictures' hub, you can upload pictures to SkyDrive, and facebook integration is also easy – would be a good idea to back them up before it's too late…

So, not sure if Microsoft picked me to be some kind of beta tester for their upcoming Windows Phone 7 OS update, or maybe it's some kind of revenge for the hard start we had, I'm almost back in business now, thanks to my Live account, Outlook and Gmail. My apps are still missing, and of course my pictures, but that doesn't stop me from continuing and promote WP7: the more I use it the more I like it.
Hopefully the real upgrade will not delete my stuff once again…

In my opinion, the reset of the cell phone is due to the corupt software.
