Unlocking your LG Nitro HD cell phone can be easy and painless with the right information. This article aims to guide you through the process of unlocking your Nitro HD to any SIM based cell phone carrier. First off, you may be asking what does SIM based actually mean? Well simply put, it is any carrier or phone that is compatible with SIM cards. These are those little micro SD looking things that usually slide in behind your phone’s battery. Carriers such as AT&T and T-Mobile are known for offering service using a SIM card. Once we unlock the phone, we can use a SIM card from any providers. Thus you can then switch carriers for any reason you may need to. Another hot topic going along with this seems to be the many smartphones that are now offering dual-SIM card ability, so you can have two plugged in at the same time!
Anyway, let’s get to the unlocking. In order to remove the SIM lock, you will first need to get a bit of information off your phone. The first is your IMEI number. You can easily get this number by simply typing *#06# on your dial-pad. Your IMEI number will then be displayed on the screen via a network message. Once you have this number you can use it to generate your unlock code using a service such as those listed on this webpage. Once you have the code, you can follow the 3 simple steps below and your done!
