    HI, how can I flash the phone, and how is it done, so I know for myself. About how much would it cost if I brought the phone to the store to have this done?

  • alfarome Jun 07, 2010

    the phone is not on my account. and has a code other than the last four of the number on the phone itself.

  • alfarome Jun 07, 2010

    I tried dileing *228 then opt.1 and it asked for the number i`m calling about, but i don`t know the number. because the phone is locked.
    and it won`t tell me the number.

  • alfarome Jun 07, 2010

    I tried solution # 4 and it didn`t work, nothing happend. maybe i`m not doing it right. is there something else i can do?

  • alfarome Jun 07, 2010

    The information was very helpful. I will be able to use it on other phones that I`m wokeing on.
    Thank you, Ron

There are different ways to get it unlocked, you can use software, or codes or online unlock services. As you've said, your last four digit of your phone number isn't valid anymore, you can try these two codes.. 277634#*# or 47328545454#, or 2945#*# this should be typed on the main screen. Hopefully many lg phones have been unlocked using this codes. But I am not sure about your model. In some rare cases this also helps; Press and Hold Camera + Lock Button, then write 3845#*990#. I am just giving this codes only as an assistance, please note, i don't need payment for this. So if you are not satisfied, you can go for another expert. If you need some more information, i'll provide you the link. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

    I don't know whether you've chosen another expert or not. But let me just add some more information which might be helpful to you. Flashing means reinstalling the operating system of your mobile, here in India, they'll charge Rs.100-500 depends on the model. Good luck.

  • alfarome Jun 07, 2010

    I tried typing the codes in and nothing happend. You were going to give a link to go to. I didn`t understand Rs 100-500, for this service. how much is that?

  • alfarome Jun 07, 2010

    This is what I was told, that the code was changed. What it is, I cant get further than, That the phone was locked on the screen, I cant get the Menue to come up for other options.

  • Muzahura Frank Jun 07, 2010

    try also, ##RTN ok or ##RTN# should ask for master code, try 000000 or 111111 or 123456. then hard reset it. for RTN, i mean spell out RTN on the keypad.
    Hope it helps

Hi, since it was locked with a different code than the last four of the phone number, it simply means it has been changed. You have to get the code before you can unlock it, but should in case you cannot get it, then you have to take the phone to a mobile phone tech to FLASH the phone....

Take care

Need unlock codes to lg phones cause i got a phone for a pawn shop and there is a un lock code needed


this is what you need to do. turn the phone on. hit ##7764726 (program) then enter phone model number 8800 so it would look like this ##77647268800 pres SEND. Service cod will pop up, hit 000000 all zeros, six of them to be exact. press okay on service program it will bring you to the esn screen, hit ok. now it will say phone number. enter either all zeros or your phone number, the last four of the phone number you enter will be the unlock code. so if you enter 555 555 5555 your unlock code will be the last four so 5555. just hit okay untill your phone resets. when it turns back on, your unlock code will be the last four digits!
