Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Unlock I love my vx8300 but I am not happy with verizon anymore. I want to switch to a new provider but I want to keep my phone. They told me I would have to get an unlock code and I would lose my warranty. Then if something happens I will have to buy a new phone. If I don't do that I will have to buy a new phone to switch to them anyway. So I decided I would try to find out how to get an unlock code and do my best to keep my phone safe. How do I unlock my phone.

Re: Unlock

Take the phone to a cellphone sales store, and have them get the lock code off of the phone for you. It might cost you a little, but it beats having to get a new phone.

I have a Verizon LG VX8300 phone that I would like to give to my grandson to replace his lost phone. His service is on T-Mobile. Can this be done (I can't even find the SIM card in the phone).

Lg VX8300 is a cdma phone that doesn't carry sim card. Your grandson will need to contact T-Mobile, provide them with the ESN # from the back of this phone. They will then switch the service to this phone. You will find ESN number behind the phone, starting with D or H or A (like hex or dec or Meid #)

Lg vx8300 wont turn on passed where it says verizon wireless it just keeps looping through when you first turn your phone on and it says verizon wireless

You are going to have to contact verizon wireless and hopefully you are still under the manufacturers warranty. You might be able to reflash it, but that requires purchasing a data cable and software.

How do I export my contact list from an LG VX8300?

Are you staying with the same mobile carrier? If so, you should be able to copy all of your contacts to your sim card, and then when you switch phones, all of your contacts will already be on your sim card. Hope this helps

LG VX 8300 Reset Lock Code To Default If you have your phone serviced with Verizon this should work. Dial *228 then push send. You will get 3 options to choose from. 1. To program your phone. 2. To update your roaming capabilities. Can't remember 3rd option. If you choose 1st option, program your phone you will be told to hold while your phone is being programmed. When finished your phone should turn off then on again itself. Your lock code is then set to default. (last 4 digits of phone #)

Cell phone sim card

All mobiles have a sim card and are normally located under the battery.

Take the back of your phone, remove the battery and it should be there. Sim cards are normally a small oblong piece of plastic with a corner cut off. The flip side of one will have a metal strip, which is your sim memory. Don't damamge this side of the sim otherwise your card will be useless.

Hope this helps?
