If you’re having second thoughts about Samsung or the rest of the flagships, you must really take a look at LG V Series’ newest release, the LG V40 ThinQ. It comes with five (5) cameras that will definitely turn your camera experience around.
No, it’s not just hype; its 3 smart rear cameras will give you 3 different options in capturing a picture.
It has a huge 6.4” QHD OLED FullVision Display with a notch, and it’s powered by an Octacore unit Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 64GB internal memory, built-in battery, and of course, the crowd favorite, a headphone jack.
LG V40 ThinQ’s look came in four different colors—Platinum Grey, Aurora black, Moroccan blue, and Carmine red.
Standing 6.4 inches tall, this smartphone is comparably lightweight, weighing only 5.96 oz (169 g) following the standard weight for LG V series.
The screen is almost bezel-less except for a notch at the top. Trying to copy the iPhone X’s design may not be such a bad thing after all. As they say, imitation is the best form of flattery.
This smartphone uses Plastic OLED (P-OLED) instead of AMOLED which is the glass version of OLED. However, there are known issues of burn-ins in other models using P-OLED. We hope this will not happen in this flagship phone.
Its main feature is its 5 cameras: 2 in front and 3 at the back. We’re used to seeing dual lenses for wide angle shots, but LG chose to have a third rear camera solely meant for taking zoomed in portrait shots of your subject.
There are three (3) lenses located at the back of the phone—- 45˚ Telephoto Zoom Camera in 12 megapixels, 107˚ Wide Angle Camera in 16 megapixels and 78˚ Standard Camera in 12 megapixels.
They added a feature that allows you to take photos using the rear cameras at the same time and it is quite handy if you want to have the perfect angle for your pictures.
The two remaining lenses are located at the front—-Wide in 5 megapixels and Standard in 8 megapixels. They are perfect for selfie shots.
Also, the Cine Shot feature makes photos livelier and will surely be loved by Instagram users and aspiring filmmakers. This revolution in taking pictures is happening, thanks to LG.
Not only that, it is rated with IP68 water and dust resistance, so you can take on more pictures with your adventures.
And yes, LG V40 ThinQ is keeping the headphone jack- it’s not a common sight on most flagship phones nowadays, even on the iPhone Xs Max. LG is surely dominating the audiophile niche.
In the table are the features of the three newest released smartphones by their companies.

The pricing difference between these expensive phones is not too big. It all goes down in each phone’s specs and features.
If you love taking pictures and making videos, LG’s V40 ThinQ is your bestie. The upgrades they’ve done in this field really blew up other smartphone manufacturers. They have greater and clearer resolutions compared to iPhone Xs Max and Huawei Mate 20.
LG V40 ThinQ also has power and processor advantage, it’s a phone with a ginormous 6GB RAM and spacious 64GB Internal Memory.
In terms of outer appearances, the matte coating effect of LG V40 ThinQ is such a letdown. It looks so plain and cheap looking compared to the other two.
Moreover, if you already own V35 upgrading to V40 is not really advisable.
Yes, LG V40 ThinQ has new features that are not available to V35 but if you’re not into selfies or video making, you might not enjoy the fact that this phone costs around $920 when bought outright.
Here at UnlockBase we like to show you a comparison between phones of the same brand, and this time, it’s LG’s turn. On the spotlight is LG K30 (X410TK), a new phone from the Seoul-based brand exclusively offered via T- Mobile.
We’ve had quite the feedback, so today, we are taking a look at how this specific LG phone compares to its brother phones which were also released this year.
To differentiate, the LG Stylo 4’s unique selling point is the Stylus, the LG Q7+ its performance and protection, and the LG K30’s its price point and simplicity.
It is one of the most affordable LG phone this year, yet it still has premium features we would not usually see on a phone within its price range.
Do note that the above-mentioned phones come from different families of devices under LG. This means that they were created to be an improved version of their predecessors, and for the LG K30, it is the LG K20.
For the Stylo 4, it’s the Stylo 3, and so forth. That being said, each family of devices was created to have its own unique selling points, so our considerations for this article lies solely on the premise of practicality these phones serve and the selling point to which they are offered.
In case you are torn which among these T-Mobile budget phones you should be getting, we made a table to ease the decision-making process for you.
LG STYLO 4
1.8 GHz octa-core
Android 7.1 Nougat
Android 8.1 Oreo
Android 8.0 Oreo
Fast Processor for the price, Fingerprint Sensor
Big Battery, Good Price Point, Fast Processor, Fingerprint Sensor
Big Battery, Fast Processor, IP68 Water and Dust Resistance, Premium LG Audio and speakers, Fingerprint Sensor
No other features to offer.
Not much improvement since LG Stylo 3
Camera can be improved.
The table above shows the major features that you will actually be paying for the device you are going to get. It is clear that LG K30 is pretty much a decent device for the price it is being sold for, however, we don’t think it is worth the compromise.
If you are going to pay another $39 bucks, you can get a much bigger phone with a much bigger battery size, the LG Stylo 4. Also, the LG Stylo 4 has an additional feature, the Stylus pen, which is pretty much comparable to that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
On the other hand, both the LG Stylo 4 and LG K30 has the same amount of ROM/RAM power, which essentially means they are comparably as fast as the other, but the LG Stylo 4 has a much more powerful 1.8 GHz octa-core processor. It means that multitasking on this phone is fast and is more power efficient compared to the LG K30, but if you’re doing just the typical type of tasks, this difference in speed will probably go unnoticed.
There’s no question as to why the LG Q7+ seem to have more value because of its higher price. But for a mid range phone with that price tag, it is no doubt worth every penny. It is one of the few mid range phones that has IP68 water and dust resistance, packed with premium LG sound features comparable to the brand’s flagship.
LG K30 vs Other Budget Phones
Although LG K30 seems like an unwise choice for a budget phone compared to other LG budget phones, you might find it a better option compared to other budget phones from other brands in the same price range.
T-Mobile also offers Samsung Galaxy J7 Star, and it currently retails at $225 when paid in full, the phone has a slightly bigger screen and slightly better camera than that of the LG K30, but it doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor at the back.
Samsung J7 Star
Moto E5 Plus
Android 8.0 (Oreo)
Android 8.0 (Oreo)
Good Camera, Fast Processor
Big battery, Fast Processor, Big Screen
No Fingerprint Processor
Low Resolution Display
The Un-Carrier also offer Moto E5 Plus, which retails at a higher price but comes with a fingerprint sensor and a much superior processor. It has a gigantic 5000mAh battery but it did have a few features compromised.
The phone seemed to be very heavy and it has a low-resolution display, the cameras weren’t great, but they are not that bad either, but we are certain you’ll like the LG K30’s camera better.
For the price, we think that the LG K30 is worth the penny, but if you are willing to spend a little more, you can actually get a better phone with a much faster processor and a better camera.
But if you’re a solid LG K-series fan, this phone surely is an up-game compared to the LG K20 in so many ways. We sure wished it had something more to offer especially that there are a lot of competing budget phones in the market, but it seems that LG K30 has given way for other LG phones to shine.
Do you own an LG K30 from T-Mobile? Care to share your experience with us?
MetroPCS has graced us with 4 different new phones for the month of August, and among them is the LG Q7+ (Q610MA). It is a mid-range phone, with a $329 price tag but only $99 after store credits when you port over to MetroPCS. Unsurprisingly, this phone is also available on T-Mobile.
The price tag is surely very light (given that it’s being sold in MetroPCS) but the technical specifications and the features of this phone are on par even to that of the iPhone X. Let’s see why this phone maybe your next one (even if you are previously a diehard iOS user).
Have you ever heard of a budget phone with IP68 water and dust resistance? Probably not, because this is the first MetroPCS phone with IP68 level of water and dust protection released this year. And probably the only one from MetroPCS so far.
There is another mid-range phone with a similar water and dust resistance, HTC U11 Life which was released earlier this year, but it came with T-Mobile and not MetroPCS. It had IP67 water and dust resistance which means the LG Q7+ is far more superior than it was for that specific matter.
The LG Q7+ has curved edges which they say are 2.5D arc glass, which makes it easy and premium to hold at the same time looking like the iPhone X, although smaller in size.
For just a fraction of the price of the flagship high end phones, you can get the same feature and quality without spending as much. We are sure you’d want the LG Q7+ permanently sim unlocked so you can sport this on all your travels.
The Best Features? LG Q7+ Has Them
If you are thinking whether this phone has sacrificed the speed and accuracy for the price, you can consider yourself wrong.
This phone doesn’t have the biggest screen, standing only at 5.5 inches despite the competitions going for 6 inches recently.
But there is a reason for that.
Not only do phones with big screens eat up too much power for screen time, they are also very difficult to use single-handedly. The convenient size of the LG Q7+ make it easier to take selfies with just one hand, type, and socialize without getting busy on both. The size is chosen for ergonomic reasons more than its effect on battery life.
Other than that, it has a Full HD + Full Vision 18:9 Display which means your screen lets you enjoy full viewing experience.
You can take photos with portrait mode with its 16MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture. The front-facing camera is 8MP and has f/1.9 aperture. It can record video in 1080p quality.
It is important to note that this phone also has DTS:X surround sound just like LG G7 ThinQ, the brand’s flagship released May this year. The price is of course twice as much since the latter is a flagship, but the sound experience is the same.
With the DTS:X surround sound feature, you will enjoy a more immersive, richer, and louder sound experience than any phones you will find for the same price.
There is also a fingerprint sensor located at the back, and it is also a quick shortcut button to take photos, to scroll through notification bar controls, and to even take screenshots.
The phone’s Q Lens also lets you use your camera for search, and provide smart suggestions. This makes online shopping an easier task. Just point your camera at something and your phone will provide you information.
The LG Q7+ packs a huge 64GB of internal memory and 4GB of RAM which makes the fingerprint sensors work faster and the overall multi- tasking experience seamless.
It runs on the latest Android (Oreo) Operating System so you are assured that all the latest security and bug updates are all in. It also has a powerful 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor making the overall package complete.
With all of that in, you can play games, run data-heavy apps, and do much at the same time.
The only caveat on this phone is the battery size, which is only 2980mAh. So even with a fast processor and the latest Android system the phone may not last a day if you use a lot of heavy apps.
But with a fast charging feature it is as easy to recharge and get the power you need in just a few minutes to use your phone for the rest of the day.
The LG Q7+ is a mid-range phone with premium features you can only find on a flagship. With a FullVision Display and DTS:X surround sound feature, you will enjoy watching movies, playing games and listening to music with a more immersive experience.
It also has one of the best processors and operating systems available, making the total experience with the phone seamless, and without lag. You will like the phone even if you play games and do a lot of things at the same time.
Design-wise the phone is one of the best looking LG phones we’ve seen so far. And with an IP68 water and dust resistance level you can bring this phone to any adventure or travels and get the most out of it.
The LG Stylo 4 was recently released by MetroPCS, although it was first rumored to be a part of T-Mobile. LG had released a lot of phones lately, including the LG Stylus Series, and many users are confused whether they should upgrade to that or this specific model. The LG Stylo 4 is valued $239 in MetroPCS but they’ve cut it down to $179 as an in-store credit (discount). It is also being offered by Cricket Wireless and it retails at $229.99.
There are a lot of offers from MetroPCS now, including a FREE iPhone SE when you SWITCH, but new things always fascinate us. And besides, who wants an expensive iPhone that is clearly a downgrade of Apple’s earlier versions?
Hopefully, through this article, we will be able to help you answer a few of your questions. Is it worth to upgrade to LG Stylo 4? What makes it standout from the rest of its competition? Stay tuned…
LG Stylo 4 Versus Other Midrange
LG Stylo 4 is the total definition of an “up” game from LG. This year, the Seoul-based tech giant geared into increasing screen size to stand out from other major competitions that are already competing in the 6 inches arena.
The LG Stylo 4 stands gigantic at 6.2 inches and the iPhone SE will look like a midget standing only 4.87 inches tall. Other 2018 mid- range phones like the Samsung J7 Prime stands only 5.5 inches, while the previous version LG Stylo 3 Plus stands 5.7 inches.
This year, LG is trying to break through the mid range barrier by proving that size really matters, and the LG Stylo 4 does a very great job at standing out, and well, standing tall.
The Stylo 4’s huge screen full-vision display really needs a big battery, we are yet to hear the reviews of battery life on this one just because it’s pretty new, but it is disappointing that it only has a 3300mAh battery, only slightly larger than the previous version Stylo 3 Plus which has 3200mAh.
Still on this latest series, LG is trying to bring people the comfort of having a phone with a stylus, that is commonly known to be an arena for the Samsung Galaxy Note series. The LG counterpart is nowhere near half the price of any Samsung Galaxy Note phone but it sure is more than decent for its price.
It also has a built-in stylus and has an updated software for you to take notes and create GIFS conveniently.
Just like the usual mid-range phone, the Stylo 4 has enough machinery to compete- 2 GB RAM, 32 GB ROM, runs on Android 8.1, and an octa-core Snapdragon processor.
You’d love the fact that at such a low price point it already has a fingerprint processor- that is definitely one step ahead the competition. Well done, LG.
The fingerprint sensor also acts as a quick access button that is programmed to several features.
It has facial scan, but of course, that is not going to win against the iPhone X.
It also charges fast through a reverse USB type C charger, so that’s a big plus for the LG Stylo 4.
The cameras aren’t bad but they aren’t great either. The main camera is 13MP and the front camera is 5MP with wide-angle lens. There’s a Portrait mode that lets you blur your background like a DSLR trick, but since the images are gradient at night, that trick is not going to work.
There’s more to the camera than insta-perfect pictures, because with the QLens feature of this phone, you can use your captured images to search for something online. But then again, that isn’t something new.
As for the audio, it has a DTS:X Surround sound feature, not sure if you’re the audiophile type that notices the sound difference no matter how little, but boy are the speakers awesome.
Final Verdict: Unlocking LG Stylo 4
For a mid-range phone, the LG Stylo 4 really cuts it to the budget. For a budget phone, it already has enough features that is necessary for security and good performance. And yet, LG decided to go beyond that and they’ve improved so much since the LG Stylo 3 Plus.
We’re hoping LG makes more of these and keep improving them year after year, but we don’t think the consumers are ready for a drastic price increase, though.
Bottomline is, LG Stylo 4 is a great phone for those who are in a budget.
If you bought one from MetroPCS and want to use it with other providers, UnlockBase can help you Unlock LG Stylo 4. There is nothing more useful than a phone that can be used in multiple networks, wherever you are in the world.
That’s it for the LG Stylo 4.

Added Security Feature: Facial Recognition (convenience and security)
Talk Time: 17 Hours Talk Time
Operating System: Android 7
Weight: 4.9 oz
MetroPCS has graced us with yet another phenomenal deal to kickstart 2018. This first is not your average phone, because LG has given the Face Recognition Unlock a shot with this mid-ranger after the iPhone X landslide.
It didn’t disappoint though, as it is easy and fast to setup. As for the security it offers, it’s something you’d expect from a $60 phone (MetroPCS price save $80), as it can unlock using your own picture. (You can take a look at the video here).
It’s not something you can expect from Apple, as it’s way cheaper than the iPhone X, but it does make up for the convenience it offers.
LG Aristo 2 has definitely proven to us that Facial Recognition in iPhone X is not overrated. The theory that Facial Recognition technology can be on a mid-range phone is debunked, for now. Nonetheless, that feature sure added up a little novelty on the LG Aristo 2, and again for the price it asks, you can’t expect more.
On the flip side, unboxing the phone isn’t really exciting as the box from MetroPCS is usually straightforward with the phone’s features printed at the back cover. The phone is designed with full HD screen at 5-in IPS display which is long, sleek, thin, and easy in your hands.
It has a mirror-looking back cover although it only has a plastic build. It also houses the camera, flash, and power button.
LG Aristo 2 runs on Android Nougat and has a 16GB ROM with a 2GB RAM. Compared to the LG Aristo, this phone’s RAM and processor capacity is slightly bigger and that’s accounted as one of the major improvements. It’s also micro-SD expandable to upto 32GB and it’s powered by a 1.4GHz quadcore processor, which gives us the reason why the Facial Recognition lock system works fast.
The phone’s sensors and camera are safely situated at the upper front portion of the phone. The front facing camera is 5MP and Phase Detection Auto Focus rear camera that has an LED flash.
LG Aristo 2 vis-a-vis LG Aristo
There’s not much difference between the LG Aristo and LG Aristo 2. Both have the same 5-in screen and apparently running on the same Quadcore processor. The placements of the buttons at the back are also very similar as you will still have the power button right below the camera.
The only difference is the fringe on the back cover as LG Aristo has them but the LG Aristo 2 only has a plain mirror finish. The LG logo are also placed differently as the predecessor has them at the middle, while the latter has it at the bottom. The speakers are also on the same spot, except for a difference in how the holes were designed (it doesn’t differ much in sound quality).
On the front, the second generation Aristo does look better as it appears cleaner, without the LG logo at the bottom and with the camera on the upper portion, making it look more professional and minimalistic.
Overall, it doesn’t make that much difference on the aesthetic level of the phone; only the LG Aristo 2 looks a little more classy and blends to most 2017 phone models with glass finish.
The performance on the newly-released LG is also better as it can support multiple windows, giving it an edge compared to other phones on its price range. It also has a much higher RAM, so multitasking on this phone should go seamless even when you use a lot of internet or multimedia. The latter also has a much updated Android version, which means it boasts the latest security and features you can expect from Android.
Picture quality are also similar, but on par with other phones it doesn’t really make it to the instagram-lovely cut. The display on the LG Aristo 2 is also much better as it is better lighted and has much better saturated color.
Is it worth the upgrade?
LG Aristo 2 has upgraded on both the inside and the outside. The design, display, and build of the second generation phone is obviously much better compared to its predecessor. The screen has better saturation, the back cover looks more professional and trendy and it does feel more premium in the hands. Concerning the performance, LG Aristo 2 is slightly faster compared to the LG Aristo because it has a better RAM and can support multiple windows.
Setting up the Facial Recognition Unlock is also straightforward and it unlocks pretty fast without needing to position the phone on a particular angle, which is very convenient. The only caveat is that this feature is so easy to cheat, so you might want to take advantage of adding up another unlock feature when you need it.
If you are considering the price, this specific model is sold at less than half the price at MetroPCS and it sure doesn’t disappoint when compared to other phones in the mid-range arena.
Upgrading to the phone is a good idea only when you are an LG mid-range fan, but if you’re not, 2018 is just getting started and there’s so much more in store for you in less than a month from now. So stay tuned!
The LG V30 is nothing like its prehistoric parents. This slick phone is making noise in the tech world and here’s why some guys would ditch their plans with Samsung Note 8 and forget about the iPhone X to get themselves an LG V30.
According to the test, which you can see in Youtube, Samsung Note 8 suffered with the least screen damage, more probably because of its edge to edge screen, but you can hardly open any app and the screen starts to become unresponsive after 10 drops.
On the other hand, LG V30 may look more physically damaged with the selfie cam slightly altered, but miraculously, the screen is still responsive and you can use it BAU! What’s more interesting is that, the back cover of the LG V30 suffered visibly no damage. Lovely, just lovely for every clumsy buff.
That’s right, 10 drops folks. 10 drops to a steel plate is all you need to prove the LG V30 is worth every penny you invested.
LG V30 is also water and dust resistant, ain’t new thing but as LG put it, it has passed 14 different military standard durability test, which we say is proven by tech buffs on so many Youtube drop and durability tests.
(We don’t want to talk about the iPhone X drop test. Thinking about throwing $1K down the bin is already making me cry, but you can watch the test here.)
Well, honestly speaking, LG V30 isn’t the best in the camera department. It’s not the only phone with the DSLR- like camera you expect, but you will never have enough of its features, which LG filled to the brim.
You can record videos with the preset filter that you want to have, ain’t that cool? Not only that, you can control your zoom, which practically lets you zoom in any area within the frame.
If you are a vlogger or a travel blogger, the LG V30 is a must-have for all your travels. You can pre-order it factory unlocked or you can also have it permanently sim unlocked LG V30 and V30+ using our services.
Talk about smooth transition!
It also comes with a standard and wide angle lenses that lets you take the ultimate panorama and group selfies without sweating it out.
You can even edit videos on your phone! You can add sound, cut and paste video footages, and add a theme! You can add up to 50 files, like GIFs, photos, and videos to make one single awesome video.
Seriously, you can’t even get a decent video out of some computer softwares, aside from the fact that they are too technical to use. The LG V30 definitely brings out our side of filmmaker- wannabe.
That said, LG V30 is outrageously underrated folks.
(But if you want to look how LG V30 camera fares with S8 and the X, here you go.)
LG V30 is a big, bezel-less phone but it is easy to handle. It’s not your typical size at 6.0” but you can operate it single-handed. It has a P-OLED display, not much difference with Samsung and AppleAMOLED. More importantly it says that for the sake of branding, but technically speaking, there’s virtually no difference from what we can see.
LG V30 is also very convenient to use because it has its fingerprint sensor from the back, which is not awkward for any user (no matter how short your finger is).
*It’s super lightweight and probably the thinnest among the most coveted flagships*
It also has a radio tuner that lets you listen to your favorite local radio whenever you run out of data to stream (lol) but it always comes handy, especially on places where even 3G doesn’t exist. Yes, LG thought of you having the soundtrip of your life even when you are in the woods.
Compared to X and Note 8, V30 is the only phone to ever think about audiophiles, like they always do. Yup, they kept the B&O partnership and you can enjoy Hi-Fi at a lesser cost.
Welcome to my awesome world, baby.
LG V30 is running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, with a 4GB RAM, and Adreno 540 GPU. You can run several programs, play games, and watch movies without ever experiencing a lag. With it’s capability, it’s like a laptop you can fit in your hands. You can also check out the software speed test LG V30 vis-a-vis on iPhone X here.
The V30 is running on Android Nougat and it admittedly said they are not ready to update it until early next year. That’s something you might want to take note. Although the phone is performing supremely, there are still bloatwares that you might not want to uninstall.
LG loves to fill your phone with apps they never thought you’d never like, anyhow, you’re free to uninstall when you want to.
What we think is awesome about LG V30:
? Qi Wireless Charging
? High- Resolution display
? Always-On display (with customizable clock designs and dock notifications)
? Latest processor
? Hi-Fi Dac Audio System
? Bigger battery and longer life
? Glass front and back body
? Lightweight and thinner than most
? Huge storage
? Dual camera system
? Cine- Video video recording function
? Point-zoom video recording function
? f/ 1.6 aperture
? Always- On display
? 3.55mm headphone jack
? Slick, bezel-less, zero-notch screen
What we think is not cool about LG V30:
Of course, nothing is perfect and you will always find a flaw in whatever device or thing you have. And although LG V30 is close to perfection, there are some things that people wished they could change with this LG flagship.
☒ Not running on latest Android Version Oreo (when they had the chance)
☒ Front selfie cam images aren’t so realistic
☒ Non-removable battery
Some people don’t like the LG software, but IMO, if you aren’t bothered about how your phone looks but on how it works, you shouldn’t be so concerned about that. Plus, it’s highly customizable, so that shouldn’t be a problem.
If you are the audiophile-type or the selfie-expert who wants awesome IG photos, this phone has built-in filters that lets you create that professional look real-time or preset. This is how LG confronts iPhone X’s camera filters.
If you are going to look at what LG V30 offers, you’ll see it weighs more and for a lesser price. LG isn’t the best at marketing as we know it, but the LG V30 deserves a second look and IMO, a recognition as the best flagship today.

Unlocking an android phone like an LG phone doesn’t really asks for a set of complicated procedures. Just like most, it follows a set of 3-4 instructions to make an LGcarrier-unlocked. Although it varies per model, you only need to take note of the specific code it’s asking for.
Woah! That’s a lot, but most LG models only asks for 3 codes: NCK, NSCK, and SPCK. We usually send you three to five different sets of codes but only one gets your phone unlocked, so be very careful to read the screen prompt because you only have 10 chances of getting it right!
If you fail 2 or 3 times, please contact us. We have 24/7 support that can help you unlock your device or tell you what’s wrong. Save your unlock attempts and contact us right away!
Generally speaking, here’s how you unlock an LG (not-model specific):
Insert a non-accepted SIM.
Turn ON device.
Screen prompt asking for a code (NCK, NSCK, SPCK).
Read email instructions before entering the code.
Enter the code being asked for.
Your LG phone is now successfully unlocked!
Ideally, your phone should prompt for the “SIM Unlock Code” screen automatically, but if it doesn’t do that, here’s how you get it:

How To Troubleshoot Common LG Unlock Errors
We want to save you from all the technicalities of error messages, but we will list the common error messages that won’t ask you to call for customer service because the troubleshooting steps are straightforward and easy. So, here we go!
Error 1: “Enter Code” prompt does not appear
After dialing the code or inserting a non-carrier SIM you are supposed to see a prompt that would ask you to enter the code, otherwise, that’s both a good news and a bad news.
The last one you can easily rule out if you are the original owner of the phone but you can try to isolate and troubleshoot further. If you’re lost, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Also, it is recommended to turn off your phone, remove the battery, and wait for a short while before powering the phone back on. You can also try to remove or re-insert the SIM card while on the process.
Error 2: “Code Error” or “Sim Network Unlock Unsuccessful”
If you are getting this error, it means that the code we gave you didn’t work or you entered the wrong code.
To isolate the issue let us start from the basi. If the code was wrong, you might have given us the wrong information about your phone’s IMEI, model number, or locked-to carrier. In that case, we have to generate another code for a new IMEI, which discredits you of a refund.
To troubleshoot further, always make sure to follow our email instructions when entering the code. As mentioned we usually generate 3-5 unlocking codes, but you’ll only use one and it depends entirely on what you are being prompted on your phone screen.
Remember, you don’t have unlimited unlock attempts. So if you get it wrong at three times, save your remaining attempts and don’t hesitate to contact us.
Error 3: Asking for “PUK” or “Security Pin” or “Password”
If you are prompted for a “PUK”, “Security Pin”, or “Password”, it is asking for a user-set password or pin to operate or device. If you are the original user, you should be able to figure out this on your own.
Error 4: No service
If you are still not getting any service, it means your phone is already successfully unlocked but it isn’t detecting your new carrier’s network. To resolve this, you have to manually enter your new network under your phone’s APN settings.
If you can make calls or texts but internet or data, you have to double check your phone’s compatibility to your new carrier’s network frequency.
