That depends on the make and model of the phone. It could range from nothing to losing all your contacts and other stored information.

How do I hard reset this device without loosing contacts?


You can't. A hard reset is exactly that, the phone is returned to the state when it was new from the factory.

Some phones do give you an option to back up first, but generally a hard reset is chosen because you can't get into the phone. Connect it to a computer and see what happens.

Securik code

•Enter the code: *#7370# and press Yes to confirm initialization.
•Important Notice: It is recommended that you save all important information on your phone (e.g: memo, contacts etc)
•To make a Hard Reset on a Nokia phone that is not willing to turn on, just press simultaneously these 3 buttons:
•on/off + * + 3
•Before making a Hard reset better backup all your important information: contacts , memo...etc

FORMAT NOKIA:
While my phone if power ON. Press the *7780# code, this code is usually used for the N60 series phone but this code is not working for nokia 5310. And I tried also another procedure again by doing this process:

Your phone must be power off, press the "*" + "3? + "green call key" but nothings happen again I haven't format my phone.
What should I do for this phone, this is able to recognize in the computer and cannot format to hard boot formatting.
My last choice is to find a flash utility cable suits in my phone and the software to re-program it and putting some IMEI codes.

My phone has been doing abnormal reset about ten times a day and it asks me to send report to HTC and I do but haven't fix it


Have you tried a hard reset? Google your phone type and hard reset and follow the directions, it does delete ALL of your information. That happened to my Droid Incredible and a hard reset fixed the problem for me.

My phone keeps rebooting


I had the same exact problem but I hard reset my phone and no more problem. I have to say though, I hard reset my phone again and it started again but I hard reset my phone and it's no longer doing it. It was driving me nuts when it happened because it was to the point that I couldn't take a pic. All better now though. Hard reset, try camera a few times and good luck.
