How do you "unlock" a phone?
« on: 01/04/2008 17:51:12 »
After hours of toil searching the internet for a way to unlock my phone. All i got was 'Unlock your phone for $30 or links that didnt take me anywhere..

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

LG Chocolate, On the Orange network?

Thanks

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.

For 20 Orange will normally give you the unlock code. Phone up their customer services. This may be the easiest solution...
It will certainly avoid any risk of side-effects that you might get with other methods.

Yes.. But it's expensive!
You could just go to a shop and get it done for about a fiver. But make sure they have the correct LG unlock clip.
