How to Unlock the SIM Card on a NET10 LG Phone

NET10 is a prepaid wireless company, offering a variety of phones to use with its service. NET10 has several LG branded devices that are designed to work with its plans.

The SIM in your LG device is removable, and can be protected from unauthorized use by setting a security code. If you've locked your SIM and do not know the code, you may need to contact NET10 for assistance.
