    This phone is locked and can not be unlocked.. I bought a phone on ebay plugged my Sim card in booted up and was prompted for an unlock code. I then called my service provider and he said he could not help with that but if I entered the wrong code in 10 times the phone would then ask for a puk Code. Well we completed this but it never asked for the PUK code. Instead, it gives me the message "This phone is locked and can not be unlocked"..

    I have called the original service provider and the maker of the phone. reputedly. I still have a locked network and only emergency calls only. I found a website that gave me instructions to get to the screen where you can unlock the network by pressing2945#*850# in the dialer which gives you 5 options;
    Network unlock - where I get the same message again
    Service provider unlock - your phone is not personalized
    Network SubSet- your phone is not personalized
    Corporate- your phone is not personalized
    SIM/USIM-your phone is not personalized

    I really need help LG G3 850

    Ps. when I called the original service provider and gave them the IMEI number she said the phone is clean and not blacklisted or any thing. Just FYI

    Have you considered returning the phone to the seller for a refund, or was it clearly advertised as network-locked?
