LG V20 overseas unlock requirements


LG V20 overseas unlock requirements

sup, I recently bought LG v20 from business liquidation company on ebay, while i was ordering i did IMEI check and it came clean on most online checkers.

To my surprise Smiley Indifferent this phone got "invalid sim" status while having full bar network in my country (Kyrgyztsan, gsm/lte networks).

UICC Unlock button in menu erroring out on "You cannot unlock UICC while the device has no service"


So my question is;

person (or probably company) that owned this phone while it was on Sprint in US is unknown,

If i already have this phone, how can i check that it's not in debt to Sprint?

and will it activate if i buy Sprint sim (there is no cdma service providers in my country as i know)?

Excellent questions geexmmo. I'll be more than happy to look into this for you. I won't be able to give specifics but can let you know the status of the phone. I sent you a PM to gather some info.
