Performing a reset on your Verizon LG phones isn’t hard e.g. LG vx5200 and LG vx8100


So you changed some setting on your phone and now you don’t know how to fix it? Have no fear, there is a simple process that can restore your phone to the default settings:

  1. Click OK/Menu
  2. Click right twice to get to the Settings and Tools Menu
  3. Click down until you get to the System (this is 5 on a 5200)
  4. Click down until you get to the Security (this is also 5 on a 5200)
  5. Enter your lock code. If you have not customized it, this is the last for digits of your phone number.
  6. Click Reset Default
  7. You’ll see a message that says “Reset Default: Preference settings will be set to factory defaults. Press OK to continue.” You know what to do here…

I’ve not done this on my phone. I like my settings. But I’m told that this will NOT remove the custom rings you have uploaded on your phone AND there is a seperate menu item for deleting contacts. So, I don’t think it will remove your contact information either BUT I cannot guarantee this. Choosing this option MIGHT remove all of those settings.

If someone reading this follows these instructions, please let me know, in a comment, what is cleared and what is not.
