  1. I need a hard reset to use the phone because of forgotten codes that ARE NOT factory. The phone is now with straight talk.

  2. I have an LG440 flip phone. Water was poured on to the keypad, also got in the battery wet, now it won’t turn on. The battery works in another phone, & a different charged battery does not work in the phone that was wet. We tried putting the phone in rice for 24 hours, several hours after the incident. Is there any way to repair it? Is there any way to retrieve the info & minutes off the phone to transfer to another phone?

  3. I did as Bolas34 above suggested and it worked. My sister passed away and I did not have the code. I want to donate the phone, but not with her contacts in it. Worked great!
