I do agree with you...but not entirely. LG is the one that made the dang thing capable of being locked. Also, if that was the case... why is LG the ones that will unlock it for you if u can get it into fastboot to summon ur device id # that they need from adb. I know there is some Wise guy somewhere that thought it would be a good idea, but everybody had to follow suit for it to happen. Boost acted like they didn't even know what I was talking about and kept trying to offer me my MSL lol. (This phone requires a special unlock.bin file to unlock...not a passcode. So unless boost has those files that they can email you, bbecause you have to physically add the file to your phone. It's not just one particular provider of service, this kinda bs is not even limited to cell phone providers period...it's The Man trying to enforce even more control on us. The more they crack the whip... The harder this ox pokes his yoke.
Thx for trying everyone...but all these paths have been traveled years ago and they give us the same run around. If it aint on the supported list, we can either request it to be added to the list or "wait" to see if theyll add it. People were already told by LG that there were no plans in the future to add this device to the list. I got 2 months left according to Boost before they'll unlock mine... we'll see. They acted like they had no idea about the unlock.bin and was willing to give me my MSL right then.
I called customer service to see if I could get anywhere since that gave me sone hope but sadly "Juliey" at LG Customer Support told me it was illegal for them to give me the unlock.bin file because it breaks the end user license agreement and that I wasn't allowed to speak to a technician. When I said I had a different question for the technician I was hung up on. 😒
