[Q] My LG Optimus G E971 was Region Locked??
This is really wierd. Hope someone can help.
I bought an unlocked LG Optimus G E971 phone in Toronto, Canada this May. Inserting a Rogers and Fido SIM card was perfectly fine and working while I was in Toronto, Canada. No SIM network unlock PIN required.
In October, I travelled on vacation to Hong Kong with the same phone that I thought was unlocked. As always, I would buy a local SIM for my unlocked phone. To my surprised, it prompted for a SIM network unlock PIN. I went to a total of 3 carriers, including 3 Telecom, China Mobile and one other (cannot remember the name). All asked for a SIM unlock PIN.
Not believing what had happened, I went back to the shop in Toronto, Canada after returning home. Tried inserting Rogers, Fido, Bell and AT & T SIM card, all worked perfectly.
My question is, could this be a region lock? Like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3?
Anyone has similar experience to share?
