Is it Legal to Unlock a LG?

Unlocking your LG phone is completely legal in all the countries that we have checked however it is always possible that laws can be changed. If you are still financing the phone through your carrier then technically they still own the phone until you pay for it off completely. In that case, your carrier may not want you to unlock it for they fear you will run away to another carrier without actually paying the remaining balance owed on your LG!

If you bought the LG phone second-hand or got it from a friend then you may not  be sure If  your LG phone is locked or not,  the  simple way to find out is to pop in a SIM card from a different Network. If it's locked, then the LG phone won't work on that network.  If it works, then you can be sure that the LG phone is unlocked and not blacklisted.

However if it does not work with a SIM card from a different carrier, this can also mean that it is blacklisted.  You are better off spending a dollar or two and purchasing a Blacklist Checker, LG phone carrier checker and GSX report just to be sure.

If you discover that it definitely is locked, and not blacklisted then we can help you network unlock it.


Unlock Methods

Method 1

  1. In the dial pad, press 2945#*XXXX# or 2945#*XXX# where XXXX or XXX equals the device Model number which can be found here
  2. Select Network lock.
  3. Enter the 16-digit network lock code.
  4. A confirmation message will appear once the device has been unlocked.
  5. If the phone message says "phone is NOT PERSONALIZED" it means the phone has now been unlocked successfully
  6. Troubleshooting: If the Network Lock screen doesn't pop up it is because sometimes XXXX is different than the Model number (for some older models). See the list at the end of this section to find the correct XXXX to type in.

Method 2

  2. The device will ask for an unlock code.
