How to Hard Reset an LG Octane
Hard resetting a cellular phone completely wipes it of user data. If you hard reset your LG Octane, you'll be returning the phone to its factory settings. A hard reset is often the last step in troubleshooting hardware and software issues, and is also recommended if you're planning on giving your old LG Octane to a friend or family member. You can hard reset the Octane directly from within the phone's operating system.
1 Select Menu from the Octane's home screen
Select “Menu” from the Octane's home screen.
2 Select Settings and Tools
Select “Settings and Tools,” and then choose “Phone Settings.”
3 Select Security

4 Choose Restore Phone
Choose “Restore Phone.” Select “OK” when asked to confirm. Enter the restore phone code to proceed -- this code is also set to the last four digits of your phone number by default.
5 Wait while the phone restores
