The phones located in Israel and I would like to use them here.
During purchase I missed the "small letters" that these phones mostly support CDMA network even though in the specification was mentioned that it can operate in GSM network as well.

at this point, I have two phones locked to any foreign sim-card and operates in CDMA network only.
I read that by changing IMEI or using IMEI it is possible to unlock these phones to any sim-card and it'll operate in GSM network.
so far it was unsuccessful.

I'd appreciate any help on the matter.

I post my findings about unlocking LG Volt LS 740 here:

It may help

Has anyone done any work with it yet, as far as rooting and recovery?

it is a great phone but it can not be network unlocked

Could you please guide me on where to start with?

this si how i unlocked my boot loader
1st comes 1st lg ls740 this is to backup the laf partition, i recomend yall bakup,recovery an boot as well just in case

Note: This assumes you've already rooted manually or with Towelroot and know what adb/fastboot is.

First, backup your LG Download mode (laf) with this code, so you can use LG Flash if necessary.

adb shell
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/laf of=/sdcard/laf.img.

Run the following code to zero out laf:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/laf
(i did this and my volt told me the memory was full but this still got me into fastboot

adb reboot

For whatever reason, you won't be able to access fastboot via "reboot to bootloader" like most phones, so you've got to do a key combo:

Power Off
Unplug USB
Hold Volume Up
Plug in USB

step 2

fastboot oem device-info

should look something like this ...
(bootloader) Device tampered: false
(bootloader) Device unlocked: false
(bootloader) Charger screen enabled: false
OKAY [ 0.012s]
finished. total time: 0.013s

step 3, fastboot oem unlock

should look like this,
OKAY [ 0.004s]
finished. total time: 0.005s

DO NOT skip this step before shutting off or rebooting the phone


fastboot flash laf laf.img

p.s if you backup your laf.img make sure to move it off of the internal storage to the sd card or computer or you will not be able to acsess it

bub here is a recovery

fastboot boot cwma1.img and it will boot into the recovery. DO NOT FLASH IT AS YOUR RECOVERY, IT DOES NOT WORK.
dropbox link

it only works from fatsboot to get to fast boot do this

1st back up laf partiton

adb shell
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/laf of=/sdcard/laf.img

step 2
erase the laf partitoion (fastboot is behind laf )

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/laf

step 3 boot the cwm recovery
fastboot boot /home/user/Desktop/cwm.img

just use the directory u have it stored at

Is this to Network unlock the phone or to unlock the bootloader?
