LG Fathom hard reset

If a soft reset does not solve a system problem, you can perform a hard reset. After a hard reset, the
phone is restored to its default settings—the way it was when you first purchased it and turned it on.
You will lose the programs you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized on your
phone, and only Windows Mobile® software and other pre-installed programs will remain.

To perform a factory reset, press Start > Settings > System > Memory > Tap Clear Storage and select Factory Default
from the Clear Type drop-down menu. Then, tap Clear.

If a Hard Reset does not solve your issues, you may need to perform a software upgrade.

General advice: Before you buy a new cell phone or new tablet, please try the following procedure to repair your device in a software way. First charge your battery, backup your important data if possible and in most cases take out SIM and SD card before doing factory reset. It is impossible to recover your data after doing a hard reset, so online backup is always important. For all of your data, a backup should be done on an external device, hard drive, raid system or media. With or without insurance, if your cell phone lost, damaged or stolen at least your invaluable data is backed up in a safe place. If you are about to sell your phone and you want to wipe your personal data, or if your phone affected with virus you have to do a hard reset. In some cases, you can delete the forgotten password or lock pattern from your device as well. All information is for devices with stock based ROMs. If you are using rooted device, always back up your EFS folder first, containing your IMEI info, etc.! Please also note, that a hard reset operation will not unlock your mobile phone's SIM lock or network lock, but it will remove the unlock pattern, remove the user password or PIN password (NOT the SIM card's 4 digit PIN code). Also note that the firmware version will not be affected in any way, it will not be downgraded, it will remain the same you are using and if you have rooted your device, root privileges remain also unaffected.
