    If I hold the lock key and home button for ten seconds will I lose any data? I believe this is called a hard reset or a respring maybe ??

    You will not lose any data doing a hard reset. Hold both buttons until you see the Apple logo.

    Thats called a soft reset isnt it? A hard reset is a restore, IIRC and that will loose data! ;)

    EverythingApple Hi, I'm Chris!

    This is a hard reset. Hard reset and restore are different.

    Just make sure you sync the iPhone ever so often, so there's a backup.

    This is a hard reset, and a soft reset is shutting down the phone normally and then turning it back on.
