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.

Hi megfish,

Thank you for your inquiry today. I definitely understand how important it is to have full functionality to your desired applications. My sincere apologies that this application cannot be removed from the device. This application is a hard install with the operating system.

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.
