Unlock t-mobile LG v10

Did anyone figure out how to get this unlocked? I am in the same situation and would love to collaborate with anyone on getting this unlocked.

This same situation also happens if you have to file an actual warranty claim (instead of an insurance claim) and you get sent a replacement device from the manufacture (e.g. LG/Samsung/etc) instead of the carrier (Tmobile/Att) I have like 5 manufacture warranty replacement devices that are carrier branded with clean imei but the carrier claims they aren't carrier branded phones even tho they are loaded with said carrier bloatware, boot splash screens and carrier branded boxes. So if you ever see a phone on eBay/swappa that is a near mint refurbished/warranty replacement avoid it off youre trying to get it unlocked

I just called T-mobile yesterday to have my eBay bought H901 unlocked.
They told me they would send me the instructions within three days by email on how to unlock it and that email would contain the unlock code.
I at first tried to unlock my phone with the software that was included with the phone from t-mobile and it would not work.
We will see in two more days...

So you told them you purchased the phone on ebay and they would still help to unlock it? Which number did you call? Was it ever unlock?

    Here's two options :

    1. Ask your friend that have tmo service to call tmo and register your phone IMEI with their number and call tmo to unlocked it using device unlock app... since your phone not blacklisted or No financed.....[Worked for me].

    2. Unlocked the BL... Install twrp... Root it and flash custom Rom ....install SuperSU and install regionlockaway.apk by @Chainfire same the creator of SuperSU and maybe it would unlock the SIM card. It worked for me in the past.... With Samsung ...htc phone....not sure LG phone.

    Got mine unlocked using markbencze's method but without having to activate a prepaid card + using it for 40 days.

    Bought my H901 V10 Locked to Tmobile off ebay from a user who couldn't get it unlocked in my country (Canada).
    Did my research, checked the IMEI on the tmobile site and it didn't come up with anything.

    So I got the phone, tried the tmobile "device unlock" app with no luck. Tried unlockbase.com and they refunded me pretty much within 24 hours saying they couldn't unlock it.
    Called tmobile customer support. Very unhelpful, telling me to contact the buyer to unlock it for me or return the phone.

    Was prepared to buy a sim card when I decided to try emailing the tmobile specialist email that markbencze listed. I told them my IMEI and that I bought it off a ebay seller and it was possibly a LG partner V10.
    They got back to me quickly and asked for a screenshot or picture of the IMEI and proof of purchase (I sent my ebay invoice).

    They added the IMEI to their database and I got it unlocked with their app within seconds. This only took a couple of hours which is much better than having to buy a prepaid card and using it for 40 days.
    I suggest anyone who has bought the phone off a third party vendor to try emailing or calling the contact in markbencze's post first before you follow tmobile's annoying unlocking policies.

    Guys see my reply here. This may be of some use.
    More details to come. If by chance my post there gets edited and the tmo contact information disappears just pm me or find me on hangouts or Google plus

    What is an LG Partner V10?

    Sent from my VK815 using XDA-Developers mobile app

    From what I heard in different threads, It's LG devices that people got using the lg partner promotion. Probably only offered to people in the industry or for testing.

    And these devices are initially locked to tmobile but never activated on the network so the imei doesn't show anything when you use the verify site on tmobile. But if you call someone higher up, they will add the imei to their database making it possible for unlock.

    Tmo corporate

    I had this same unlocking issue with my G4. G4 was locked to Tmo, but since I got my G4 directly from LG, preloaded with Tmo software, my IMEI was not in Tmo's system. Here is how I got my G4 unlocked:
    1. Filed formal complaint with the FCC, and the Washington State attorney generals office.
    2. Waited for Tmo corporate office to contact me
    3. Used Tmo paid shipping to send phone to Tmo employed LG tech in Bellevue, WA for unlocking
    4. Tmo shipped phone back.

    Took about 2 weeks. By law, they have to unlock the phone if you do not owe a balance on it.
    Tips:
    -As you know, Customer service is worthless and will in one way or another insist that your phone is a fake when the Tmo rep chooses not to add your IMEI to their system. They will insist that you need to talk to LG
    -LG barely speaks English in my experience. They do this to get you off the phone. LG will insist that you need to contact T-Mobile to get it unlocked.
    -If your lucky, your T-mobile rep will call LG while placing you on hold. It is at this point that the rep runs out of options as he/she realizes that T-mobile needs to unlock it but Corp has refused to give everyday employees access to unlock.
    -Create a large enough fuss with corporate and the FCC, you'll get your phone unlocked.
