OK, maybe not explained well and I had read this post that you "suggest" ... I'm from Colombia and I bought the phone on ebay, I contacted Sprint, and the answer was that they would not give me the lock code because the phone is not on an active account since the phone is new, then I kept looking on xda and found how to get the MSL.
Now, I got the MSL, but my question is how I program or configure the phone to open the bands ... or unlock it, I don't know how and Sprint don't answer me, and in the post that you "suggest" no information... by the way, thanks for the sarcasm ...

and sorry my english ...

2 things.

1. This is developments not Q&A, there is a place for this.

2. Isn't there an international version of the LG G2?

While I appreciate the effort, I don't think this unlocks the Sprint LS 980, but just opens up new LTE bands, what we were(or at least I was) is a way to use a local SIM card internationally without having to contact sprint, which I've tried and they won't comply. From what I understand, sprint sends an OTA update to the phone enabling the international local SIM usage, meaning that the phone does it naturally, just sprint blocks something on it.

But many thanks either way
