Performing a Normal (Soft) Reset on a LG GM730

A normal reset is sometimes referred to as a soft reset. A normal reset stops all running applications but does not erase any programs or saved data.

Caution be sure to save any unsaved data before performing a normal reset since a normal reset erases all unsaved data.

To perform a soft reset:

  1. Find the Soft reset key. This is the small hole inside the charger socket cover on the right hand side of your device (shown enclosed by circles in the picture below).
  2. Use the stylus to press the reset key and hold it for a while. Your device may shut down.
  3. Press the POWER button, the device restarts and displays the Home Screen.
