So, Does anybody have any ideas on how to unlock a:

LG Chocolate, On the Orange network?

Heehee.. My sister has an LG chocolate.

I'm pretty sure it's not possible unless your a specialist.

Otherwise I would have bought an Iphone and unlocked it ;D

With the phone in standby, enter 2945#*7101# this will activate the extra menu>
then go:
Settings>Security>SimLock>Network select deactivate this is where you can enter your code


Now I just need to find the unlock code. *Sigh* LOL

I think this is a Faker.. But I guess it's worth a try..

To Unlock KG800/LG Chocolate
1. Insert sim from the network that it is locked to.
2. Turn on phone
3. On home Screen, Slide up phone
4. Type 2945#*#
5. ENG. Mode menu should appear
6. Go Down to Factory Reset Select it, may take a few minutes to reset!!!!!
7. This will reset the phone back to before the Phone was locked to a network
8. The phone will automaticaly Restart(Note The Network Logo At start up will not change)
9. Now insert Any simcard(Not tested with 3 sims)and the phone should turn on normaly
10. The phone is now unlocked and you can customise the setting as you like.

Sorry I couldn't help!

What happens if they send you a new sim? Hope it all goes well.
