Hi it seems this can’t use a Tesco sim card when its unlocked is that true does anyone know ?

menilman on 28 February, 2010 at 5:02 am #

At first it didn’t work, then I thought maybe I needed to do the whole unlock process with the new SIM card already inserted, and voila! it totally worked!
So fast and easy, thanks!

menilman on 28 February, 2010 at 5:03 am #

Oh, BTW, mine was locked to SFR and now it works with my prepaid Virgin Mobile card.

MrMoto on 11 March, 2010 at 7:23 pm #

The red “Emergency mode” means that you need to be in that mode to start the process.
To do that, turn off the phone and then press “call button” + “c button” + “Camera button” and then “hung up button”. After that conect the usb and run the “lg 3g mobile download”.
