An LG Optimus 7 unlocked mobile phone works on all GSM networks. The LG Optimus 7 needs a LG unlock code in order to remove the SIM lock that comes on most SIM based cell phones by default. If your LG Optimus 7 has a SIM lock on it, then it will prevent you from using the mobile phone with any other carriers.
I would first recommend you try getting a LG Optimus 7 unlock code by calling up your current phone carrier. In exchange, they will need your LG Optimus 7′s IMEI number. Your IMEI number is unique to your mobile device and the LG unlock code will be calculated using it. You can get the IMEI number on your LG Optimus 7 simply by typing *#06# and hitting the enter or send button. If you do not currently have a carrier or cannot get a free unlock code, then I would reccomend trying some of the unlock code websites that I have reviewed below.
Once you have your unlock code, you can begin the LG Optimus 7 unlocking steps below. Please keep in mind that the LG Optimus 7 is still not released, but these unlocking instructions should work on any LG phones that are SIM based. If you are unsure what you are doing, try contacting some of the professional unlock services provided below this article.
