Is it legal for you to unlock the LG?

Unlocking your LG phone is absolutely legal in all the countries we have reviewed. If you’re still financing the phone through your network provider, so legally they still own the phone until you pay it off fully. In that scenario, your carrier does not allow you to unlock it because they believe that you will run away to other service providers without actually paying the remaining balance owed on your LG phone!

If you purchased a second hand LG phone or got it from a friend, you might not be sure if your LG phone is locked or not, the easiest way to find out is to pop up a SIM card from another network.

If it’s locked, the LG  phone won’t work on the network.

If it works, you can be sure that the LG phone is unlocked and not blacklisted.

However, if it does not work with a SIM card from a different carrier, this can also mean that it is blacklisted. You are better off spending a dollar or two and purchasing a Blacklist Checker.

If you discover that it definitely is locked, and not blacklisted then we can help you network unlock your LG phone today.
