Unlock your new LG G3 and make it work with every SIM card of every carrier all around the world. Unlocking the phone wasn’t allowed for many years until now. The USA has finally allowed to unlock smartphones.
When a smartphone is locked to a specific carrier, you can only use the SIM card of that carrier. If you insert a SIM card from another carrier the phone will not recognize it at all. Most of the phones come unlocked and you can use every SIM card you want, especially on Europe.
But in USA things are a little different. Most of smartphones are locked to big carriers like AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. If you live in another country but you have bought your LG G3 in the USA, you can’t use your current SIM card unless you unlock it.
SIM unlocking your LG G3 is a very simple thing to do. The process takes only a few minutes and you will end up with a phone that can be used everywhere with every SIM card.
