Lg 8500 lost keypad code

My daughter locked her phone and can not recall the code. No it is not the last four of her number. It was a "random" four digits. Is there a way to recover the lock code?

How do i unlock my lg 8600 flip

  • Flip open the phone so the keypad is exposed and press any button to wake the phone up from sleep mode.
  • 2 Enter the four digit unlock code using the phone's keypad. The default code is the last four digits of your cell phone number.
  • 3 Press the "OK" button to submit the code and unlock the phone.
Forgotten Code
  • 1 Turn the phone over and remove the battery cover and battery. Press down on the upper plastic edge of the cover and slide it in a downwards motion. The plastic cover will give way to the battery which can be pulled out of the phone.
  • 2 Locate the sticker on the phone hidden behind the battery. Write down the last four digits of the ESN DEC number.
  • 3 Replace the battery and battery cover and turn the phone on by pressing and holding down the "Power" button.
  • 4 Flip open the phone so the keypad is exposed.
  • 5 Enter the last four digits of the ESN DEC number. Press the "OK" button to submit the code and unlock the phone.
Power the phone on and select the "OK" button. This will trigger the phone to ask for the password.

  • 2 Press "OK." Sometimes this is simply all it requires. If not, move on.
  • 3 Enter the last four digits of the phone's number. If this doesn't work, continue to the next step.
  • 4 Enter "#4357" or "*4357." "4357" stands for "LOCK" on a traditional telephone's alphabetic keypad translation. This is the default unlock code for certain LG telephones.

    When turn on unlock code comes up

    First if phone is lock dial *228 and then press 1. That reset your code for last four digit of your cell #
    (phone will reset ,no any data will be lost)
    If you do not know a cell # and phone is still lock then press .
    #4357*4357.and you can see phone number that's your lock code last four digit... That's for LG VX8500 (VERIZON)


    Here's good news and bad news. The good news is that you might well have forgotten that the default password on the phone is 00000000 (that's eight zeroes). The bad news is that if you've changed it to something else and that's what you've forgotten, you might well need to take the phone in to a service center to have them help you break it back open

    for manual copy this link to your address bar and click ENTER-->
    If nothing works , then you have to buy the unlock code here-->
    Thanks for rating good luck

    I have a 13 year old daughter, andhave taken her phone away from her. She locked the phone, and I need to see what is on it. How can I unlock the phone? It is a LG VX8300. Thanks

    Sometimes, the last four digits of the phone number will not work as the unlock code, especially if your daughter has changed the code. Even if the phone is locked, dial *228, then press 1 when prompted by the automated system. When it tells you: "Your phone has been programmed successfully", press "Done" or "OK". Once the phone has powered off, then back on, (it will do this automatically) the lock code for the phone will be changed to the last four digits of the phone number. For example, if the phone number is (315) 123-0101, your lock code, after following the above instructions, will now be "0101". Also, you do NOT need to know the lock code that your daughter had for this to work. After the phone has powered back on automatically, you will be able to use the phone normally. *228 does not delete text messages, contacts, etc, but it WILL give you access to a phone which has been locked, without requiring you to know the code that she has set.

    How to unlock LG VX4400

    Many people never program a password code to "Unlock" this phone, but can lock themselves out by pressing the # key for more than three seconds. I know, it happened to me when I was out of town and needed the phone to work! Anyway, press the button to the right of the large round button at the top of the keypad, you will get a prompt to enter the four digit "Unlock" code. The default from Verizon, and most likely the factory default from LG, is the last four digits of your cell number. Did this work for you too?
