But beneath its glossy exterior, the Motorola Handheld Speedway is actually a fairly complex and rugged machine that warrants some expertise to properly use and service. In this guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about hard resetting a Motorola Handheld Speedway including how to identify the correct factory settings for your specific device.

Hard Resetting Overview
Motorola Handheld Speedway is a relatively easy device to hard reset, meaning that it can be restored to its original condition by removing all of its user data, applications, and settings and then reloading the device with factory settings. However, due to its popularity and the high level of user engagement required to utilize it effectively, a hard reset of a Motorola Handheld Speedway is a tedious and complicated process that shouldn’t be undertaken lightly or without proper guidance. In this section, we’ll discuss the different methods available for performing a hard reset on a Motorola Handheld Speedway, as well as what are the various factors that you need to consider before employing any of these methods.
The Fastest Method
If you have a few minutes to spare, you can use the SIM card from your phone to perform a network reset on your Motorola Handheld Speedway. This won’t delete your personal data or any application you have installed, but it will wipe the device’s memory clean and restore it to its original condition. Just make sure that you’ve backed up all of your personal data and installed applications before proceeding.
The Most Convenient Method
If you’re not in a rush and have a few hours to spare, it’s probably best to perform a full factory reset on your Motorola Handheld Speedway. This will remove all of your personal data, reset the network settings, and then reload the device with the original factory settings. However, a full factory reset entails deleting everything on the device, so be sure to save all of your files and applications before proceeding. If you want to use a different ROM, you’ll have to unlock the device’s bootloader and install a custom recovery, which we’ll cover below.
Ensure That You’ve Installed The Correct Firmware
When the device boots up after a hard reset, it will display a warning screen indicating that it’s running on an incompatible version of firmware. You won’t be able to use the device until you’ve updated it to the latest available version. This, in turn, will require connecting the phone to a computer and installing a custom recovery. You can also find this firmware update for your device on the Google Play Store if you’ve previously connected the phone to a computer. Installing the wrong firmware version onto a Motorola Handheld Speedway can brick the device, so be sure to install the correct version before continuing.
Consider All Of The Options
There are several different methods for hard resetting a Motorola Handheld Speedway, and it’s important to understand all of them before proceeding. If you have a few minutes to spare, you can use the SIM card from your phone to perform a network reset, but you’ll also have to unlock the device’s bootloader and install a custom recovery to be able to use it effectively. If you have a few hours to spare, you can perform a full factory reset, but you’ll have to save all of your files and applications first. If you need a fast and easy solution, you can use Twilio to send yourself a text message with a link to a helpful tool that will walk you through the process of unlocking the device’s bootloader and installing a custom recovery, otherwise known as a “jailbroken” Moto handset. In some instances, these steps will also allow you to use the device with a different ROM (operating system) than the one installed at the time of manufacture.
Ensure that you’ve tried the different methods available for hard resetting your device and determined which one is most convenient for your needs. Some devices are more difficult to unlock and/or restore than others, so be sure to use the appropriate method for your particular model.
