LG Revolution: How to Hard Reset

We show you how to hard reset the Verizon LG Revolution smartphone. A hard reset (also known as a factory reset) will format the system memory of the device and set it back to factory default settings. Doing these steps may help if you’ve been experiencing problems with the device or if you will no longer be using the phone and you wish for all your private data to be removed. There are 2 ways you can proceed.

Note: These steps delete data. Be sure to backup any important information on the device. SD card data is preserved unless you choose to format it.
