Hi there
- brought my LG8120 home with me from the UK, but can't switch networks, or use another sim as it's locked.
Any advice?

Talk to the network you bought it from in the UK, they'll have the unlock codes :)

Hey thanks Jeffthechef.
They're going to sort me out - but it's pretty easy money for them - 15 pounds stirling, and I have to wait 2 weeks.
Still, cheaper than a new phone eh?

Rubbish -
Phone company said they'd give me the codes after 7 days, and when I phoned up to get them, and put it into my phone - nothing happened. It just didn't work, and the fella on the other end of the phone did the audio-equivalent of shrugging his shoulders. They don't have any other alternatives - at least not from New Zealand.
Bummer.

Does anyone have any words of wisdom?

Cheers,
F.

Codes do not work always, if you have already tried 3 times with a wrong code then it won't happen now, only a cable solution can unlock it now,Contact me for that. Cheers

I was in same situation when I got the phone from T-Mobile in US and best way to get it done is to call the dealer from whom you purchaed the phone.

In my case they mailed me the code and it worked fine

Hey everyone - thanks for taking the time to reply
the problem was that the company did give me the codes - but they didn't work, the phone is still locked, and they can't / wont do anything else for me. I should have got it unlocked when I was still in the UK - but was thinking of a million other things at the time!
