Hi, i brought a used LG G2 with USB cable, earphones and charger but nothing else, no box or anything... rooted the phone today and saw a new update available to download but for some stupid reason i cant update the phone on my Computer, tried on my phone and it said "your phone is not registered yet" so i went to the LG website to register the phone but couldnt fill in the serial number part since i dont know where the hell is it, since i dont have the box of the phone and theres nothing on the back just next to the LG logo i couldnt registered the phone and now im actually worried since not having the serial number might be really bad i guess, and the worst part is that i cant get in touch with the guy who sold it to me.

My question is, is it rly bad not having the serial number ? is there a way i can get it back somehow ? can i update the phone anyway without having to flash or somthing "dont have much knowledge on that"?

Thx in advance.

you should have the imei number on a white sticker on the back of the phone. that will be as good as a serial number to your carrier.

Go to settings, about phone, and somewhere there you will find your IMEI, write it down somewhere and then try?

If you take the back cover off of the device. There should be a sticker inside with the serial number on it.

Also if you take the last number off the imei that should work.

hey, after some tought i decided to put CM11 on this phone since i couldnt update it anyway, now... when i go to settings/about phone/status i can see my serial number there.
Is it my real serial number ? or just some serial number from the rom itself? sry i dont have much knowledge on this stuff.

Sorry the other stuff didnt work.

But that should be it!

Have you found a way to fix the "Your phone is not registered yet" problem?
