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

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
su
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

WHEN YOU ARE DONE IN FAST BOOT MAKE SURE TO RESTORE THE LAF.IMG

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
https://www.dropbox.com/s/m8verc01kr8gnzq/cwma1.img


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

1st back up laf partiton

adb shell
su
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?

Talking CyanogenMod 12 for the Volt
For anyone who is interested, Bad_MOFO_33 over at Android Forums has a working beta of CM12 for our lovely little LS740. Phone/SMS capabilities don't seem to be working, nor do the vibrator and the rear camera, but other than that, it's a very smooth and stable ROM and is fun to play around with

You have to flash a later version of TWRP for this to work but it is compatible with the stock ROM as well.

I'm running the CM12 rom right now. Sms is working, phone works great... 3g and lte are both good, both cameras are working with 3rd party apps. It's much better than you gathered, but so many were having issues, I can see why. There are a bunch using it, and also candy rom, as their daily driver. So glad I stuck with this phone!

So SMS and phone do work? I spent an hour or two last night trying to get them to work, but I guess I'll just have to try again :P apart from those two issues (and no vibrator), it's a very nice daily driver. RAM consumption is so much better than on stock, too.

What camera app are you using. For the life of me I can't get the rear camera to work.

Ucam, it's on the play store. I'll also mention that while Candy rom seems smoother and more complete, I experienced some WiFi issues on Candy...
