Usim Locked Lg Veiwty

You just need to unlock your KU990 and then you will be able to use the phone with different network.

To purchase unlock code visit FastGSM KU990 Page

You must have sim card from network the phone is locked to. This is essential! Without the sim card you can not access phone menu and type the unlock code.

I have an cect i9 dual sim phone i have two sims both register on phone but only one dials out the other shows network failure tried switching position of sims but stil only one works

Which sim slots works? Or is it only one sim card that works? If it's only the sim card, check with your wireless provider, it could a conflict between the phones technology and the band that your service provider use. If it's the sims slot then try going to sim profile and enable both sim, for starter. You don't state whether your phone is a quadband or a triband.

My phone is unlock forsome reason i even try the sim card from the same company as my recent sim but still doesnt work, it keeps on asking for the sim lock

hello there....well its quite simple...there is nothing wrong with your phone ...its your SIM... if it is asking for a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) your subscriber and ask them for PUK code,entering this code will reset your sim
if u keep entering wrong your sim will be damaged so call them
If the error message is saying sim damaged call them and ask for a "sim replacement" you will get a new sim while you will retain the same number ,however you will lose the phone numbers and other data stored in sim,this can be free but it depends on the company and how 'customer friendly they are
Hope this helps

Says insert sim card when there is one in it

"Insert SIM" message is normally displayed on phones when a SIM card is not inserted on power-on or it does not detect the SIM card inserted.

Likely Causes:
  1. No SIM card inserted or inserted SIM card is damaged
  2. Inserted SIM card not positioned well in such a way as to make contact with the corresponding contact bridges on phone.
  3. Phone locked to a specific network and can only work on other networks when the firmware version is "flashed", that is completely changed to an unlocked version.
  4. The phone might be faulty (try with another good SIM, if you still get thesame message and its not one of the above reasons... it might be a transciever problem or the phone's SIM card slot's pins might be defective).

This is a question M FRIEND HAS A SAMSUNG WITH A T MOBILE SIM CARD my friend is going to sell me his phone but he wants to keep his sim card when he takes his sim card out and i put mine in Virgin will...

In most cases putting in your sim card will in fact lock the phone. but it's not permanent. So try it. put your sim card in.. if the phone works, then you don't have to worry about unlocking it. If it does lock the phone, just put back his sim into the phone and it will be fine. There are many places that you can unlock phones or even purchase unlock codes. This is NOT illegal, phone carriers just make it difficult to do. Good luck and let me know of the results.
