On the AT&T Network, to unlock the LG Shine or CU720, it’s pretty simple:
To obtain the IMEI number, type *#06# on your device. This is a 17 digit number and it is not the same as the unlock code, this is the IMEI number to give to AT&T Technical Support in exchange for the 16 digit Subsidy Unlock Code.
to get the (16 digits code) call att and tell them you are traveling overseas, it may take two calls.
,but they should give it to you the (16 digits code)
Insert non ATT SIM
Showing 'Invalid Smart Chip'
This will take you to a screen saying you are about to unlock your phone. Do you want to proceed.
Select yes (left button)
Enter your 16digits code.
Enter your code again
Now the phone is unlocked
It requires 2 inputs of the unlock code.
If this helps solve your problem please give a fixya rating, all of them are really appreciated, sorry I cant personally tell you the code number, but ATT or your Service provider should, if all else fails, here's an online service.

PUK CODE: This is usually a problem associated with a LOCKED SIM CARD. This can sometimes happen when you enter your PIN incorrectly too many times. I would recommend going to a retail location of your service provider (ex. AT&T Store) and ask for a SIM CARD SWAP. This service is free for most providers. If you are charged for a SIM swap, tell the person helping you that SIM swaps do not cost any money and that they are free and that is what you were told over the phone.
OTHERWISE YOU CAN TRY THIS:
PHONE UNLOCK (Not related to PUK Lock):
There are websites online that provide unlocking services for a fee. If you google "phone unlock service" you will see many options.
There is also another way to go.
You can call yout service provider (ex. ATT, T-Mobile) or the company that branded the phone (the company that the phone is locked to) and tell them that you would like the unlock code for your phone. They will probably ask WHY you want the unlock code. Tell them that you will be going out of the country and need the phone unlocked in order to use a pre-paid SIM card in the country of destination. They will then get you the unlock code typically within three days. Hope this helps.

You can unlock it by flashing your mobile if your mobile is a CDMA mobile...
The procedure for flashing your mobile is in the link below
It has an video explanation.
If yourmobile is not an CDMA mobile , you can get the network unlock code(NCK) byjust contacting the current network provider customer caredepartment.It is free of cost.
The restriction code can be got from your old service provider..Thisrestriction code is kept to prevent someone who stole the mobile fromusing it with another provider...
They will have a security check done with your date of birth etc..to verify whether you are the exact owner of the phone..
After that they will provide you the restriction code to unlock it and use it with another service provider..(vodafone)..
It is all free of cost donot pay anyone for this seeing some advertisement over internet . That is all fake ads.

PUK code is called as PERSONNAL UNBLOCKING KEY.
Your phone will ask for PUK code when you entered the PIN
code wrongly several times depending upon the mobile make. The mobile asks for
PUK code so that unauthorized persons do not use your mobile for wrong cause.
To get PUK code please contact your service provider
through phone or go directly to their office. They will provide you the PUK
code for your mobile. The PUK code is unique for each mobile phone model.so
that you can open your phone. When you planning to call your service provider
you cannot use your mobile as it is fully locked. Please use some other mobile
with same network to call your service provider.
This PUK code prevents thieves from being able to make use
of stolen handsets, that is why it can only be given by the service provider
While you get the PUK code ,the service provider
customer care officer will ask for your personal details to check whether the
mobile belongs to you only. If they are satisfied with your answers they will
provide with the PUK code
DONOT enter the PUK code several times wrongly,It will
block your sim card permanently.
This PUK code is FREE. You no need to pay any money to
get the PUK code
