BlackBerry Curve 9370 Hard Reset to Master Factory Settings

One of the oldest models from this brand, the BlackBerry Curve 9370 was launched towards the end of the year 2011. Very similar to its brothers – the BB Curve 9350 and the BB Curve 9360 – this one quickly became reknown for its performance and efficiency. Although a very good smartphone, it can sometimes be infected by viruses that will determine it to load the software very slowly, and generally not work as well as before.

It’s recommended to perform a hard reset on the BlackBerry Curve 9370 in such situations. This procedure is very good in terms of getting users rid of all software-related issues very quickly, by refreshing the operating system and bringing the device back to factory settings. This also means that all user data will be deleted which is why it’s important to create a backup.
