    you need to go to secret menu then find ure EMEI number then use a program "like a crack program for serial numbers for applications on pc" put the EMEI code that you got as every fone is diff and it will give you a longer code that you type in main screen then shud unlock :thumbsup:

    Hey, can you tell me the model number of that LG veiwty. I was going to purchase one but one model of the viewty is not 3g, so if its that one your 3 sim will not work in it.

    Based on GSMArena, the KE990 does NOT have 3g
    KU990 Does have 3g. - your 3 sim will work.

    cheers.

    It's a KU990 so hopefully should be ok.Bought it as a replacement for the INQ1 I got with my contract,maaaaaaaaaaaaan that's a poor phone,3 have had it more than me!!

    Good question OP - I'm in exactly the same position. Subscribed!!

    Haven't tried putting the 3 sim card in yet though - have you?

    Yeah,first thing when I got it, "simlock engaged" message on the screen,grrrrrrrrrrrr.Looks a really smart phone as well,can't wait to get to grips with it

    ]LG Viewty Unlocking Using this guide works fine, I done it previously with my LG Viewty. Word of warning tho, make sure you follow it exactly otherwise you may brick your phone i.e stop it from working.

    You can quickly identify them mate, the 2G KE990 does not have a front (video calling) camera, the 3G KU990 does

    When trying free software on ur handset :whistling:, check your version number first, its under phone settings, e.g 10H, etc

    have you seen the comments after that vid - everyone saying it doesn't work and one complaining that after doing it NO SIMs work in it :w00t:

    So did anyone manage to find a way of unlocking these yet?

    Got mine unlocked by a guy on ebay,really good service.Item number on ebays is 150338428982.Took him abaout two minutes,really pleased with the service.Only problem with the viewty I bought is the internet settings are locked to O2 so I can't get on the net with it.Going to have to send it off to have the firmware flashed,fonefunshop.co.uk do that,mines off tomorrow to them.If you just want it unlocked though,can't recommend the ebay guy enough

    I dont use free software on customers handsets and there is a reason why people who do this for a living invest in proper equipment... If everyone wants to save a few bucks and put their phones at risk for this, then feel free to do so... The reason I mentioned above checking the current version of ur handset before trying anything is, if you do mess it up then at least the phone can still be flashed again and should work on the original network again... I dont use the software posted, however before using it if it has the option please please make sure you make an NVM backup... I dont know if this is possible with the software, however if it is please do use this option... As some of the later viewty handsets were a little ackward even with proper equipment.
