Unlocking instructions for devices

 

---------- Instructions ----------


Read This First

* DO NOT use all attempts to enter the unlock code otherwise your phone will be hardlocked (all phones have at least 10 attempts)

* Make sure "Airplane Mode" and "Wi-Fi" is turned off under wireless connections if your LG is an Android device. 

* Video proof will be required if the Unlock code does not work, it's a good idea to film it so we can help trouble shoot what the problem is. We may also offer you a discount off your original purchase amount if you can provide us with a video of successfully unlocking your device. Just ask us!


There are Multiple Unlock Codes Above, which One is it?

If you only received 1 Unlock Code above, Don't worry about this part, use the code provided above.


Most Carriers use the "NCK" code, you will only require this code which is the first code

 

* Unlock Code is  the  NCK=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx is the Unlock Code as shown below:

Example:

NCK=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

NSCK=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

SPCK=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

CPCK=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

SIMCK=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

* You can ignore the rest of the codes if the NCK unlocks the phone succesfully.

* If the first code gives your error, use the codes received in order.

* Telus, Bell, Fido, and all other phones requesting the Service Provider code, use the "NSCK" or "SPCK" code or the last code provided

*Note: We may send you more than one unlock code.  Different carriers require a different type of unlock code, however usually it will only be one that is needed.

 

---------- Code Input Instructions ----------


How to Enter Unlock Codes on all LG Models


Different phones have different Unlock Code Input Instructions, Try the following Instructions in Order:


Method #1 Insert a non accepted simcard, and enter code when prompted for a code

OR

Method #2 Go to the dial screen and press “2945#*model number#”

for example if its a p999 you enter “2945#*999#” or if its a p990 you enter “2945#*990#” etc…

OR

Method #3 to the dial screen and press 2945#*71001# as if making a call, enter code when prompted

OR

Method #4 Go to the dial screen and press *#865625# as if making a call, enter code when prompted

 

If Phone says, "Code Accepted" or "Network Unlock Successful" or "Not Yet Personalized" your phone is fully Unlocked


*If you are not receiving any signal after unlocking, make sure your wireless connections are turned on after unlocking the phone. Also pull the battery and restart phone.

 

---------- Trouble Shooting ----------


"Code Error" or "Sim Network Unlock Unsuccessful" What do I do?

* Please check your IMEI number by pressing *#06#, this is the most common reason the code doesn't work.  If the first 15 digits which appear is different from the 15 digit IMEI number provided above, please reply directly to this E-mail.

I can make Calls and Text but I'm not getting Internet Service.

In this case you will need to adjust what's called the APN settings.  The APN settings vary depending on the service provider you are trying to use.  Please contact your service provider and they can assist you setting this up.  There is no separate unlock for data or internet.  If you can call or text, your phone's network is fully unlocked.


My Phone is asking for the "PUK" or "Security Pin" or "Password"

If your phone is asking for one of the above, it is the Simcard personal password or phone security password NOT the Network Lock which we provide for you.  You can contact your service provider for this.  Once you bypass this, you can use the Network Unlock Code provided by us.
 

My Phone seems to be unlocked but I'm not getting any signal

First of all, we do request you contact the service provider to make sure after unlocking your device, your unlocked phone will be compatible on their network.  Not all GSM phones are compatible with any Network after unlocking it.  The unlocked phone must be able to support the Network's Frequency.  If you are unsure of this, please contact them regading this.

After unlocking your phone, please pull the battery for a couple minutes and then restart the device.  It may take a few minutes for your phone to pick up the new signal. Also go to your Network settings on your phone, and make sure the device can detect the signal from the simcard you are trying use.
