South Korean manufacturer LG makes cell phones that are used with most major wireless providers in the United States, including Verizon and AT&T. The phones come with a pre-installed security code. If you lose your phone or give it to someone else, you may want to reset the code. Whether your LG phone has a touchscreen or standard keys, you can reset the security code by following a few steps.

Step 1

Touch, or select using the directional and "OK" buttons, the "Main Menu" option on your LG cell phone. Select the "Settings & Tools" option from the Main Menu.

Step 2

Touch, or select using the directional and "OK" buttons, the "Phone Settings" option in the Settings & Tools section. Select the "Security" option from the Phone Settings menu.

Step 3

Type the current four-digit security code into the field. Touch, or select using the directional and "OK" buttons, the "Reset Default" option. A warning message will display on the screen of your LG cell phone. Select "OK" after reading the message.

Step 4

Touch, or select using the directional and "OK" buttons, the "Revert" option. This action will reset the default security setting on your LG cell phone and a confirmation message will be displayed.
