Hello guys,

I've bought brand new LG G2 D802 32GB from ebay india. So far i'm very impressed with this beast's performance. However i'm unable to get my simcard to work. It says "No sim card " on lock screen. Also when i dial " 2945#*802# " and tries to tap on network lock. I get this message

It says : This phone is permanently locked and can not be unlocked, Same thing on all other options in that menu,Seriously ? this is international version and supposed to be unlocked ?

My network provider is Airtel (sim type - GSM)

Is there any way to get out of this ? My sim card works fine on other phones so it's LG's issue here.

Software version is D80210F-sea-xx Jelly bean 4.2.2

Thing's i've tried :

Turn off the phone completely, taken out sim and pop in again and wait 2 minute before powering it on again. Doesn't work.

Factory reset - Doesn't work.

What should i do ? Any workaround ? Is my phone Hard locked ?Does gold color has anything to do with this ? I barely see it in online reviews!

"permanently locked" and "bought on ebay" doesnt smells right to me.....

Nope, i haven't try other sims yet. I got only one Micro sim. I don't think i've got scammed. The seller sold over 20 phones in less than 24 hours. He has 99% positive rating too. I'll contact him about this issue too. ATM i'm looking for some DIY fix. Will root solve my problem ? I heard you can do some tweaks in EFS partition to get unlock!

Further more i read somewhere that you need to type unlock code atleast 10 times to get this happen. Seriously ? I didn't typed even a single time since there is no such option available!

Please help! I'm ready to root if it solve my issue
