    • If you updated to the very latest android version it’s not gonna work. I used this method to get sim unlock on my LS992 which I accomplished quite successfully until I updated. Not sure if it’s carrier specific or not, but I do know the quickest cheapest way is to get someone to remotely unlock it. I found a service on EBAY who did it for $8.99 and it took less than 10 mins to do. Just a thought and the 9 bucks is well worth it!

  1. I can confirm that Its not working on LG G5LS992 on Android 7.0 The hidden menu shows only handful of menu and the IOT(CDG2) menu is not there as RANI wrote because Sprint has blocked it now. Please tell me anyone can do it to unlock my phone.

    • Are you using a non-sprint g5 correct? If you read the previous post you would have your answer

      If you have any updated device you have to buy a remote unlock
