Hello all,
Just purchased LG K7 (Walmart Family Mobile variant, model# K330) and tried to unlock for use on T-Mobile now that all WFM phones are SIM locked. Received a code from cellunlockerpro but the instructions to unlock (2945#*model number#”) don't work to open the dialog box needed to enter the code. Phone has a pre-installed unlock app which checks the eligibility prior to unlocking. Is there anyway to bypass the app and go through the dialer or service menu to unlock somehow? Thanks for any information/advice.

I bought the same phone yesterday for the same purpose. You need to search the forums, and download lgup, lgup_k330 T-Mobile, and WEB_K33010h_00 T-MOBILE.kdz. Follow instructions on the install, and flash that file. It will boot back up connected to T-Mobile. No unlock code needed.

Let me add as I am sure you know I had rooted, and unlocked the bootloader.

Okay, so if I flash this .kdz to the MetroPCS (ms330) variant using LGUp then I will be network unlocked or have switched networks to TMobile from MetroPCS; bypassing the factory installed device unlock application which was originally on the MetroPCS K7? Forgive me Im trying to verify before I attempt this.

Hi all would this work on a Metro PCS phone????

U do know after having this phone on metro for 30 to 60 days all you have to do is call them and they will unlock it for free. Every phone i have get from metro I unlock and still have piled up just in case I or someone needs one loll. I have everything from galaxy avant to core prime to LG k7. This is my favorite part about metro you buy a phone you actually buy and keep for any carrier

    Unlock means it can use with any other mobile network.
