    The phone is dark, doesn't ring. It did sound like it was taking pictures once.

    I think what you're referring to is actually a soft reset. To perform a soft reset, hold both the power button and home button down until you see the Apple boot logo.
    A hard reset restores your phone to its original out-of-box state.
    No, a hard reset (or restart) is the power button and home button. A soft reset is the power button to turn off the phone. ( Slide to power off). A restore is a restore.

    That was also my original understanding, but dchandler convinced me I was wrong.

    He's been working on me too. LOL seems there's a lot of confusion about it. If someone redefined the terms lately, they forgot to tell me.
