Unlock codes for LG Tracfone devices vary between models and online unlocking services. Sometimes it's possible to get unlock codes for LG phones by calling Tracfone and requesting an unlock code, but this only works for eligible phones. Most suppliers require users to buy unlock codes, which vary between eight and 16 numbers in length.
Some examples of unlock codes that users may receive from these companies include 357923123472598, 15918566 and 1234541753991232. Since every unlock code is different, these codes don't help just anyone unlock his LG Tracfone.
To enter the unlock codes, users first have to access a hidden menu on their LG Tracfones. Accessing this menu is done by entering 2945#*71001# using the phone's keypad. Once this menu is open, users need to find the "Network Provider" option, which is located in "Settings" under "Menu." Once inside "Network Provider," there is an option labeled "Deactivate." Choosing this option prompts the users to put in their unlock codes.
Some LG Tracfone devices require a slightly different method for accessing the hidden menu in which an unlock code is required. If the above option does not work, users need to insert a new SIM card. Once this is done, the phone asks for the unlock code.
