Want to sitch

Right now i have suncom and am using the hiptop 2, id like to switch to the LG strawberry chocolate but dont want to switch to verizon as a carrier, ive heard that if i put my sim card in it might work...also that the phone wont work without an unlock code, is there a way to get a used phone that is already unlocked..or buy the phone from the store& it will come unlocked, or any other options?

Yes you can buy a mobile unlock you can do that online or check wih any mobile store in your know if the phone you are purchasing is unlock , just do not take the CSR's work for it carry your sim-card with you and try it in the phone you will be buying.

Switching back to verizon from metro with same phone

all you need is lg downloader or lgnpst software you can google those and a verizon prl. and once you have either of those softwares and the drivers for your phone is installed u can get that from here: and a usb cable for your phone to connect it to your computer and where it says prl/eri u can load the verizon prl and write it to your phone. you will find it in the link i have given. dont look under the part for lg voyager but instead look under the section for LG-VX8500 Chocolate PRL - PRL.

    LG Chocolate screen messed up

    It was probably stepped on.  You will require a new screen sooner or later.  Better off using the insurance to replace it.

    Sorry, Verizon uses CDMA, a different technology from Suncom who uses GSM so you'll need a new phone for Suncom unfortunately.

    No sound whatsoever on LG KG800 Chocolate Phone

    TRY THIS: Have had my LG chocolate for 10 days, then sounds just stopped. Another website said to take out the battery for a couple of minutes and put it back in, I just did that, and now my sounds are back!! I hope this isn't a chronic problem...
