Unlocking Vodafone LG Viewty

14
Found 25th Jul 2009
I was wondering if there was an easy free way to unlock a handset (LG Viewty) that's currently on Vodafone? Have asked in store and was told they would charge £20 (although a friend recently went to her local Vodafone where they unlocked hers for free?? Unfortunately not local to me). Any suggestions/help would be appreciated, thanks.

Thanks for the link. Not sure if I'm being stupid, but I have tried downloading a couple of these but they won't open. They just attempt to download again. What am I doing wrong??

arlywarly I just tried opening the downloads and they dont open for me either.I did the first 1 and the last one.
I had my Viewty unlocked at the local market .

Ok just found this now mobileunlockguide.com/mob…ty/
No harm in trying that as its just putting in a few numbers but make sure you have the original sim card in the mobile .

just tested the first rapidshare links and downloads and opens fine and files seem to work for me.

Tried downloading the first link again it says put in a password to open the file and i put in my name and then its says its failed to open. I am on Vista and didnt get to the bit where you have to run the file a administrator.

password is nasoor as in instructions

to run as administrator right click on the file and its an option there

mattbisme. Oh didnt see that ! i didnt want to unlock mine as i have already done it but thought i try for the OP.

Still no luck running any of the links on the first suggestion (not even the choice to run as administrator if I right-click. It doesn't show as a shortcut to a programme, but has the 'explorer' symbol). That link you supplied isn't free I'm afraid. Still no luck.

Yipes didnt read that bit either .............Each LG U990 Viewty mobile phone has an unique unlock code. You can buy the unique unlock code for your LG U990 Viewty

Right, I've got as far as the screen where you run Windows Enabler (had to download something first to do with rar files???), but when I try to run this (and yes, I right-clicked to run as administrator) a message pops up saying 'One instance of Windows Enabler is enough!' maybe I should just pay the £20 and go to a Vodafone store but I hate to let things beat me. Also, it's for my daughter who naturally doesn't want to pay anything.

What about one of these redferret.net/?p=…393. if you look on internet more you can buy one with postage for under £3. I got one in my spare mobile and it works good .
Go down the market and see how much they charge to unlock it.

Latest update - my daughter ran the programme and it has managed to lock the handset completely. It won't even recognise the Vodafone sim so is totally unusable now. not good.
