    Ok broke my phone screen and it won't work at all. Got a new one but I'd like to figure out how to wipe the old one without being able to use the screen. Any ideas?

    Since it's broke anyway 1 good foot stomp should finish it off. :biggrin:

    There may be a button combination (power and volume) that could do it but can you see what is happening?

    Try power and volume up (or down) from turned off to see if you get an option to wipe. Maybe someone else with your particular phone can be more help.

    Power down. Press and hold the power and volume down button. As soon as the LG logo appears release them and hit and hold them both again. This will bring you to the hard reset screen. Just press the power button to do a hard reset.

    You got your answer from a master. It should work just fine.

    I might have to put my SIM card back in tho. I was playing with the buttons earlier but nothing would work because it was *****ing about no SIM card.

    SIM card shouldn't really matter because you never get to the point that it would.

    NP. Let us know how it goes. I don't foresee any issues as this procedure is all button based.
