How to hard reset a Pantech Duo

Posted: Monday, December 10th, 2007 by Gene

I just got my ands on the Pantech Duo from AT&T and am, so far, impressed by its form factor.  I’ll have a more detailed review of the device in the coming weeks but the biggest question on my mind is always “how do I do a hard reset on this thing?”


So, without further ado:

 Go to Start> Settings> Security> and select Master Clear.  You’ll be prompted fo a password, which is by default 0000 (zero, zero, zero, zero).  This will alert you that the device will be wiped, click OK and there it goes!

Per the Owner’s Guide:

• Master Clear erases all user data and initializes all settings to the factory default mode.

• To ensure the operation of Master Clear, the SIM card should be inserted while Device-Lock is unlocked.

    I have tried to contact many people but cannot find an answer! I have my Pantech Duo password protected to get into the phone. I changed it the other night but must of hit a wrong key once or twice and cannot remember the password! Att has been no help, as the method for resetting the whole phone did not work at all…If you could help me I would be forever in debt…the password timer gets longer and longer everytime…please help me!

    Thanks! I was having such a hard time trying to figure out how to free up space on my phone. I would delete a few things and the phone would always say not enough storage space. So I wouldn’t be able to send or receive texts. This definitely worked!
