  1. I have an LG Phoenix 3 (M150). None of the above worked for me. When I went into languages from the keyboard, there was no option for the LG mobile menu. I was, however, able to get to the settings another way. So, I go to about phone for the developer options but tapping on the build number did not allow it. So, I go to backup and reset. There is no option to reset. I pressed the backup option and a message popped up telling me to restart the device to continue. If I press okay, it just closes the message and nothing happens. So, I left the message up and restarted the phone. Oh, before that, while I was in settings, I force cleared the data, stopped and disabled google play services, att transfer wizard, and the 2 setup wizard apps. One of them would not disable. When the phone restarted, it said nothing about resetting but I did get to put in the name, change the date and time, and the eula agreements. Once I checked off the eula agreements, I got a message after a minute telling me to set up the phone. It took me back to the beginning and reeeeeeealllllly wants me to put in that damn google account info. I will be anything if you can help me.
