If you want to get the unlocking code for your LG K42, we recommend you to contact to the original carrier, because it is the only way to obtain the SIM network unlock PIN for free. You must know that you need to fulfill the carrier's requirements, such as being the cell phone plan owner. At Movical.Net we know that sometimes it is complicated to fulfill these requirements, if your device is a second-hand phone or if you are in another country it will be a really complicated task.
The easiest way to unlock a K42 is to get the official unlock code thanks to our LG servers, when other SIM cards are inserted, and your LG K42 asks you for the code; you must fill out the questionnaire and in a few hours you will receive an email with the unlock instructions.
We must indicate that sometimes the unfreeze MCK code is needed (when attempts are wasted, the mobile will prompt the - SIM network PIN blocked. Enter SIM network PUK - ). Other different case, is if you need to use your phone in a different continent, in this case it will be requested the regional code RGCK, you should not worry, our company already knows these cases and always send you the necessary codes for a perfect unlock.
No, once a LG is unlocked, it will be never relocked again, so you can update the firmware without any trouble.
You can use your K42 with any SIM card from Australia and abroad, such as Optus, Vodafone network providers.
If the K42 accepts the SIM card but does not allow you to send or to receive any call, it could be because the IMEI is blacklisted due to loss, theft or unpaid bills. Even if SIM unlocking is achieved, it is necessary to fix the IMEI problem contacting the carrier.
For most new AT&T, Cricket, metroPCS and T-Mobile models in the United States, the unlock method is different, it does not prompt the SIM network unlock PIN and uses the Device Unlock application, the app is usually already installed at the factory. You only have to order the unlocking and when server authorize us to unlock it, we will send you an email, just connect the device to WiFi and press Permanent Unlock within the application.
The most common is that the LG from Sprint, Verizon, Tracfone, Boost Mobile, StraightTalk or Simple Mobile from USA do not prompt the network unlock PIN, because these phones have a blocked firmware with the carrier. Our company solves this block and removes this restriction, but it has to be unlocked with a program on the PC and our technician will help you remotely.
