How to unlock LG devices for Global GSM
« on: July 21, 2017, 04:35:14 PM »
LG devices can be unlocked only using Reseller Tools.
Please follow the steps listed below.

1.) Download and install our app from here, directly from your phone.

2.) Purchase the LG unlock license from within the app, then close it.

3.) Go to Settings > About Device > and tap "Build Number" 7 times to enable "Developer Menu",
      then enable "USB Debugging" in the Developer Menu.

4.) Connect the phone to the PC using an USB cable and wait for all drivers to finish installing.

5.) Browse into the phone folder and copy the IMEI.unlock file to somewhere on your computer (Desktop is fine).



6.) Download and run Reseller Tools (Password of the archive: idoneapps.com). Be sure the phone is still connected to the PC.

7.) Select your IMEI.unlock file into the second input box, wait a few seconds, the tool will download the license.
     Select your IMEI from the "Approved IMEIs" box.
     Check the to the right panel, you will see the Unlock Sprint LG button, click on it, phone will be unlocked.
     Please note that "Credit files" are for resellers only, unless you aren't a reseller and purchased a credit file please pass to Reselle Tools only the IMEI.unlock into the second input box.

8.) You should be greeted with Unlock Success message.

9.) You have to manually input/set the APN so your new providers data/internet will work and on many devices the APN is also required to fix the "Invalid SIM" message.
      For your convenience we have listed the APN (Access Point Names) for common GSM Providers/Carriers in a APN settings topic of this forum.

Does this method unlock the LG LS997ZVD locked to Sprint without dropping signal ?

I don't think such problem (signal dropping) is related to the unlock method.
See you ;-)

Ok thanks for that bit of information concerning the signal dropping. However, does this unlock method work for LG LS997ZVD which is equivalent to security patch March 1, 2018?
