When you switch on your LG handset you will most often have to go through a setup wizard that will help to program items such as the date and time before you are able to use the phone. Once this process is completed, you can program more features on your phone, including sound and alerts, alarms, profiles and themes. Consult your manual to identify which features you can change and which must remain the same.

Go to your phone's main menu, then select "Settings."
