IE is not working on my week old Trophy.  I was typing on a forum and mid post it froze, not responding to the keyboard input.  I arrowed back to start, and now everytime I select Internet Explorer I get a black screen.

Anyone know how I can get it working again?  Wireless connection is still working fine, receiving, sending emails ok.

If everything fails then last option is a hard reset.

I read that as part of the WP7 app cert, the apps will need to be able to stay intact even after a hard reset. So that may be a silver lining to feel safe and go ahead with hard reset.

Have you tried rebooting the phone by totally turning it off and back on?

Not sure if this would help...

My HTC Trophy appears to freeze after about a week of usage... So I shut it down and restart it again, which helped...

You could also have a chat with the support via Twitter (@WinPhoneSupport)

Thanks for that. Yep, just discovered by looking up the guide about a hard reset, that I can turn the phone off, more than what I had been, so a restart fixed it. New to these things...

The "Reset" and "hard reset" are different things.

When you press the on/off button it puts the handset to sleep only - otherwise how would it receive calls, SMS, etc?

When yo press a bit longer it will ask if you want to shutdown - this is when you want to completely turn off the device.

The "hard reset" is a restore to factory settings, completely erasing everything on the device.
