I got my LG V40 Sprint bootloader unlocked and installed magisk to root it so is there any way to flash Verizon Pie firmware on it? As there is no LGUP version released supporting it currently, I don't want to wait for OTA.

I would like to purchase a new LG V40 Sprint phone and convert to Verizon. Can it be done and be 100% fully functional like a original Verizon V40?
By the way, it will be used on Straight Talk with there Verizon sim chip.

Hi vlaaaad.. I need to fix my sprint lg v40 that lost the APN setting after hard reset. Maybe reflashing the oreo firmware fix that. My phone is factory unlocked. Thanks

Try RESTORE DEFAULTS in APN menu first. If it doesn't help, PM me I will try to help with restoring backup if we have done it for you

I can ensure you that US UNLOCKED firmware works on Sprint V40, I flash it to everyone course it is bloatware free. Also I do full system backup in case of official unlock will be done later.

Why do you want Verizon fw? What features do you need?
90% that voice via up (internet calling) will not work.

I realized that using the Sprint fw if I make a call I can't use data.

Does the Sprint V40 have to be bootloader unlocked before I can flash anything else?
