LG V20 unlock problem

I bought this phone off ebay and the guy I purchased it from said that it was unlocked. Popped my simcard and it and it was fine. Got signal and everything. A few hrs after I got and update. Phone updated to Oreo and because there was things on the device I wiped it. After resetting the device. It began to say Invalid Sim. Saw on XDA that there was a user on here that can fix this issue. Named @Em_Will_I_Am could fix this issue. Help please

Re: LG V20 unlock problem

I understand. The phone has to have a Sprint SIM in it to capture the unlock signal. If your situation changes and you can get one, let us know.
