A couple of days ago I’ve come across an application which lets you restart your mobile. I’ve been dying for this function in the S60 phones. I’m not sure why Nokia hasn’t implemented it yet. The application that does this is called EQ Restart and you can download it for free – download EQ Restart. Before you can install the application you’ll have to sign it. The signing process is quite difficult but there is a great guide available here.
EQ Restart will restart your phone immediately after selecting the icon, no warnings. To take a real advantage of this application I recommend you to place it on your home screen to access it fast (Tools – Settings – Phone – Standby mode – Active standby apps.). As far as I can see EQ Restart bypasses PIN code request which is great – no need to enter it every time you restart your phone.
The only thing I’m missing is a confirmation query – Do you want to restart your phone?. That would make the EQ Restart perfect. Read about the benefits of restarting your phone every now and then.
