    I like to do the Hard Reset (Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.) every now and then and thought it was OK and safe / good to to clear out things.

    Starting with 4.3.3 every now and then when I would do it it woould restore some of my settings back to factory settings. Ever since 5.0 came out it didn't then a few days before 5.0.1 it did it again.

    I had my iPhone 3GS at a genius bar to check my battery and asked them about it and they just said a Hard reset is not something you want to do all the time only when your iPhone freezes, it could do more harm then good.

    Is this True?

    What about just turning off Instead
