Question about Verizon Communications LG Chocolate Cell Phone - Black

1 Answer

I found one of my old phones, LG Chocloate UX8550. I do not have sevice with Verizon anymore. However, I wanted to let my daughter use it and I can't remember the security lock code. It won't allow m

Once I slide it open it ask for a lock code, not SIM security code, I just wanted to get to the menu. It won't allow me to and I do not have Verizon service. Will I ever be able to use the phone again due to that feature I put on there where my children could not just pick it up and look thru it, or is there a way to retrieve the lock code or bypass it?

SOURCE: forgot my lock and unlock password

unfortunately, once the lock code has been changed, there is no record of it on customer services end. you can TRY
-if ur phone will let you dial *228 and choose option 1 to reprogram ur phone, it can reprogram the unlock code, too, but that rarely works since very rarely will it let you press "1" since it is locked.
-OR you can try to flash the software. just take it to any vzw store and they can flash at no charge, but it can erase ur memory, so only try that if u know u have ur contacts and pics backed up, and even then it does not always work

if all else fails, u can contact the manufacturer, send it to them (like prev poster said, keep ur tracking number) but it may take 6 weeks to get the phone back. if you have insurance on the phone, ur best bet would just be to pay the 50 bucks to get a replacement, if all else fails.

SOURCE: I bought a used blackberry

If you log in ten times with the wrong password the Blackberry will reset to the factory settings. This will earse all the data and unlock the phone.

SOURCE: phone is locked,i don,t know the code to unlock

you can take the phone into any verizon wireless store...

if the associates were knowledgeable inside that store they would be able to hook it up to the PST machine and find out the lock code for you

however, good luck trying to find a knowledgeable VZW associate

Wheres the imei number on the lg voyager??

The voyager is made by Verizon so it has an ESN instead of an IMEI. IT should be on the sticker on the back of the phone behind the battery though.

Help i have a vx8550r verizon phone its not in service but i want to give it to my daughter but i lost the lock do i unlock it?

If you're referring to the phone unlock code that you have to enter to get into the phone, the only way to get around a forgotten code is to reset the phone to factory settings.

To do this, type ##786, and then select "ok".

Lg env phone

Just log on to log in and you can activate the phone online. You cannot just swap the Sim card. If you have issues activating it online you can just call Verizon and have them activate the old phone.
