Delete Backup Assistant

I want to get rid of Backup assistant on my phone, an LG Cosmos 3. It runs everyday, which I do not need. I can't set it to backup less frequently, so I would like to remove it completely from my phone.

Re: Delete Backup Assistant

Not sure this always works, but it seems to be a "backdoor" that works on my old POS LG Cosmos 2 phone:

1. Go to Apps and start Backup Assistant.

2. Select "Options"

3. Select "About"

4. Press *73738# (*RESET#). You won't see anything on the display, but after you type this, Backup Assistant will exit.
