    Hello all,

    Hopefully I can get some help here. I recently purchased a T Mobile LG V10 off of eBay. When I turned it on, I got the dreaded "This device was reset. To continue, sign in with a Google Account that was previously synced on this device." message. I researched all suggested ways to bypass the FRP lock but I keep running into snags at every turn. I've managed to download the Bypass Samsung Google account verification app apk and navigate to the file system (without split/dual screen) but I cannot enable the 'install from unknown sources' option to run the apk. (its greyed out) Am I stuck or is there another route? I've tried contacting the seller again, but he/she has gone m.i.a. Figures. Please assist.

    This is by design, to prevent theft. If you can't use the phone, then it has no value to you therefore you won't steal it.

    On the other hand, it looks like the seller *did* find value in the phone--selling it remotely to someone who couldn't verify it, and then disappearing.

    Not sure why you think a tool for Samsung would work on LG.

    You need to file a claim with Ebay. Was the phone advertised as being free of FRP lock?

    Just get your money back and try again. I use Swappa, works superb. I know people who use Gazelle and others. Don't use Ebay for phones--the scams are endless.

    Life is too short to chase after this. You'll ultimately fail, and the time you spent chasing it down is wasted.
