    I have almost 500 contacts, that doesn't seem to be a scalable solution.

  • Davegdb Jan 18, 2009

    That is not an option. There are no menu options to erase contacts in bulk. My menu options under security are:

    Comon Code

    Lock Mode

    Edit Code

    Reset Phone

    And if you choose Reset Phone you get the following message.

    "Settings will be set to default except contacts.

How do i master reset motorola k1m if i forgot my pass code

Please remember after you finish all of this, you NEED to reboot your phone for everything to take effect. And only do this with a K1m, not a K1.
Master reset/clear is not in testmode on K1m. You need to either use software2_bing.gif such as radiocomm etc or you can do it from opcode screen.

Perform at your own risk!!! This will delete everything (contacts, pics, etc...), not just contacts!

Goto opcode screen:
Enter: CLR, 0, 4, 8, 2, 6, 3, * (Note: Must be done quickly.)

From the opcode screen:
Enter 18* and click center radial button on phone. Then enter 0 and click on center radial button.
-wait and it will say success after a short time.
Enter 18* and click center radial button on phone. Then enter 1 and click on center radial button.
-wait and it will say success after a short time.

Exit out. Contacts, Pix & Flix, Called #’s, etc should all be deleted…

18* enter, 0 enter – does master reset.
18* enter, 1 enter – does master clear.

WARNING: There are other #’s that can be entered…but I think you can really BREAK/BRICK your phone in there quite easily…

Performing master reset/clear using software like radiocomm is proven and works well, but if you do not have the software and want to wipe phone before selling, returning, etc… then…
