Unlock Code Instructions for LG Cell Phones for All Networks

In this guide I will show you how to enter unlock codes into your Alcatel cell phone so that it will be unlocked from your current network carrier such as Orange UK, AT&T, T-Mobile, etc. First you need an unlock code of course. If you don't have an unlock code yet, you can get it in my eBay store, select the correct store category, and then order an unlock code. No cable or software needed! Just enter the code that you will receive from me and you'll have an unlocked Alcatel cell phone! Unlocking by entering a code on your phone's keypad is called "unlock by imei". Indeed, it is the most convenient way to unlock your cell phone.
