don524 We don't like to hear that you're having so many device problems with the Icon. When did your phone start resetting on a constant basis? Have there been any recent software updates or an alert to complete an update?
As for an alternate reset, you have to make sure you follow the steps completely in order to get the phone to reset. Press and hold the volume down (in the upper right edge) while
holding the power key which is also in the upper right edge. You should press the vol down key first and then make sure you're holding the power key at the same time.
You will hold both keys until you see an exclamation mark on the restore screen.
At that time, only release the volume down key.
This is the only way to alternate reset the phone if it will not turn on. If the phone is on and responsive, go to settings, about, reset your phone and tap yes.
Try to make sure all of your important information is backed up before resetting the phone, if possible.
