Same issue here. Claimed it has been unlocked. Not actually unlocked.

Hi j2mv. This thread has been long running with a variety of different issues going on so I want to make sure I know exactly what's going on so we can help you. 

 

Did you recently request an unlock on your device? If so, did you make sure the device was powered on with the Sprint SIM in the phone while connected to WiFi? 

 

If you meet all the requirements for the unlock per the link below, shoot me a PM and we can work on checking out your account to see how we can help get this sorted out.

Re: LG V20 Claimed to be unlocked in system, but constant invalid SIM

Just to be clear.  Since I created this topic, my phone was never successfully unlocked.  Sprint ended up winning.  I eventually got tired of not having a phone so i said screw it and I took a deal that sprint offered giving me a bill of 15 dollars a month for unlimited everything.  It's called the Kick Start plan.  As long as i have auto-pay enabled, e-bill, and my own phone, then sprint only charges me 15 a month.  Where i live, the service through sprint is absolutely terrible, so i basically have to drive about 2 miles from my home in any direction to get service, but at least i can make and receive phone calls.  Just wanted to drop in and let everyone know that this problem was never resolved and i went through about 4 different reps who all said the same thing, It's obviously my phone.  Now that we're 20 pages deep though, maybe they'll finally take notice that it IS NOT my phone and is so obviously an issue with their unlocking system.  To be completely honest, it seems to me like there should be some sort of mass compensation in order for anyone that paid their phone off completely but still doesn't have full access to it.

Man that's kind of alright though at 15 A MONTH! 

So, will I am helped me out- Got the phone truely sprint unlocked now (AT LEAST I THINK). I was able to uicc unlock and make APN changes. Weird part is- When I enter in correct apn's (for this instance its metropcs), and hit save, it instantly deletes it. So, out of curiosity i named it horseballs. lol. didnt put in anything else, hit save and it's still there. so it's almost like Sprint is challenging "the man" and deleting **bleep**. Im confused as hell. Either way, I am still working on my 2 phones to get everything setup nicely.

for 15 bucks dude.. thats a great deal. Unlimited data too?

Im now paying 80 at metropcs for 2. waaaay better than 130 which was sprint's "best and oldest plan"
