FAQ LG MetroPCS cell phone unlocking
There are two ways to unlock an LG from MetroPCS, with only one of the two options applicable depending on what type of phone you have:
1) By inserting an unlock code via a hidden menu.
2) Using the Device Unlock App.
To find out which unlocking service you need to select to unlock your LG, it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to perform the following checks BEFORE making your request:
Does your LG prompt for the unlock code when you access a hidden menu? If it does, your LG can be unlocked from MetroPCS by typing an unlock code. Select our Standard Service.
If your phone doesn't prompt for the unlock code, open the Applications icon on your smartphone to see if MetroPCS has pre-installed the Device Unlock App. If they have, select our LG Device Unlock App Service to unlock your cell phone.
Contact our customer support team for assistance prior to submitting your request if your LG neither prompts for the unlock code nor has the Device Unlock App.
There are five different ways to locate the hidden menu on your LG:
1. Type 2945#*model# without a SIM card inserted or with the SIM card of the network provider to which the phone is locked. You can find the model of your device on the sticker under the battery or under Settings.
For example: If you have an LG 714 type 2945#*714#.
Type the unlock code under Network Lock or Service Provider Lock.
2. Type 2945#*71001# on your phone and then insert the unlock code under Network Lock or Service Provider Lock.
3. Install the LauncherPro application from Google Play:
·Once installed, press your LG’s Home and Start buttons and then select LauncherPro on the window that appears.
·Now, press any empty space on the home screen and don’t let go until a new window opens. Select Direct Access.
·Press Activities and then wait for a few seconds.
·Scroll down the list of options and select com.lge.hiddenpersomenu.
·Type the name the system prompts you for to gain direct access.
·To access the hidden menu, press the direct access you’ve just created.
Select Network Lock. Here you can unlock your LG.
4. Go to Settings Security Sim card lock.
Type in the unlock code and press OK.
5. Insert a SIM card from a network provider different to the one the phone is locked to and check it prompts for the network unlock code without the need to access a hidden menu.
