LG G5 invalid sim


LG G5 invalid sim

i bought LG G5 like 2 years ago and was working fine with me (i'm from egypt) and the phone was unlocked , until i factory reset my phone since it was lagging , and it asked for update and after i done it the phone only reads Invalid sim , so is there anyway to check why the phone still locked like this , if there is a pending payment or even it is clear but needs unlock ? 


Model number LGLS992

I have the same problem but I`m not the owner, I bought it a week ago. I`m from Bosnia and Herzegovina. 


Re: LG G5 invalid sim

to be honest your best bet would be to get in contact with the original owner and either return it or see if they can request it be unlocked. it will need the Sprint sim card back in it..which might be an issue unless you still have it some place.
