Question about LG Cell Phones
Hi, if the wrong security code has been entered more than 5 times then this means the phone is hard locked and can only be unlocked at a phone shop using leads and software.
how ever the problem is you need to prove the phone is yours before they will unlock it as it could be a stolen phone, so if you have any proof the phone is yours then you can get it unlocked at any phone shop for a fee, if you have no proof the phone is yours then this is where the problem lies.
you can ask at a phone shop and see if they will flash it for you and reset the security code but not all phone shops will do this for you but its the only chance you have of unlocking it if you dont have any proof the phone belongs to you.
sorry their is no easy fix but if the phone was an older type you could use a master reset code but due to the high theft rates of phones they stopped this by installing software that prevents any master code being accepted so now the only chance you have of getting it unlocked is to prove the phone is yours.
so if you have any receipts or if you registered the phone when you brought it then you may be able to pay to have it unlocked failing that your going to struggle to get it working again.
their is no free easy fix for this your only option is your nearest phone shop and pay them a small fee for resetting the phone for you.
How ever are you sure the code its asking for is the code for the phone, you might be lucky and find that the code it is asking for is for the sim card and not the phone, the only way of finding this out is to try another sim card in the phone from the same network and see if it asks for the code or not.
if it gives you access to the phone with a new sim card then take your phone and old sim card to any phone shop and they should be able to remove the sim lock
hope that has been some help to you
give me a shout back if you have any further questions ok
