Can Lg Esteem Be Unlocked To Work In Europe ?


Can the lg esteem be unlocked to work in europe? I am moving to warsaw, poland in a few days and do want to get a new phone. I have had the lg esteem since december 2011. I love this phone, so much so when my first one was stolen i purchased a new one and had to be reimbursed by the insurance company since they would only replace it with the new lg connect (esteems no long in production ). Even though the connect has a dual core process, gorilla glass, and something else i could have cared less about. It did not have the hdmi connection or a 4. 3 screen (that . 3 really does make a difference, lol). I said all that to say, i really love this phone and would love it if i could get it to work while i was in poland.

Lg Esteem - Does The Update Work For Power Cycling Issue ?

Yesterday i walked into a metro store looking to buy the esteem and after telling the employee what i want she told me that they had pulled it because of an issue with the phone. Saying that it had been power cycling. So i went home and did some research and found that lg had put out an update for the phone to fix the issue. Does the phone actually have this issue and does the update work if it does? Also if i find the phone at another actual metro store should i get it? Can anyone give me any advice on what to do?

Ics Upgrade On Unlocked Orange France Samsung Galaxy S2

I think i've worked out that rooting is not what i am after, and i think i have determined that my phone is unlocked but not unbranded, but i'm still short of understanding what i need to do to upgrade my gs2 to ics 4. 0.

1. Unlocked: i have an orange france gt-i9100, for which i purchased a plan. After three months i was allowed, via a tool on their website, to unlock it so that i can put my (non-french) sim in it. This works fine.

2. Unbranded: the phone came with a bunch of orange. Fr applications and widgets on it, which i would generally prefer not to have and just have native android (or samsung's own additions) if possible.

I'm not sure in this instance, where i should expect to get an upgrade from - samsung, orange, or? I have downloaded and installed kies with the idea that this might identify availability of an upgrade for me. It has found an available update.

About phone:
Gt-i9100
Android 2. 3. 3
Baseband i9100bvkg2
Kernel 2. 6. 35. 7-i9100bvkg2-cltest_i9100bvkg2 root@dell127#2
Build number gingerbread. Bvkg2
Finally, using check for updates on the about phone menu says none are available.

Motorola Triumph - Prepaid Network That Supports Unlocked Phones

I just wanted to start a thread to get some ideas and perspective on the triumph. I have noticed that people are leaving virgin mobile and the triumph. Where are they going? What service? What phone? I do love my triumph but with iffey battery and a so so screen quality my eyes are looking elsewhere. My question is this, is there a prepaid network that supports unlocked phones? What is the purpose of an unlocked phone?

I want to find a good quality phone on a prepaid network. I like my screen size. What phones are people getting? What network? Unlocked phones work on certain networks? Thanks guys, i love my triumph but the dated technology has to change.

Issue: Unlocked T989 Samsung Galaxy S2, Not Working On T-mobile

I'm looking for the samsung galaxy s2 and cause i use t-mobile i know i'll have to get the t989 if i want the 3g/4g networks to work. I also travel a lot so i was looking for the phone unlocked in ebay and i found some of them that they're supposedly unlocked, but they clarify that the phones does not work with t-mobile. So how can be like that? I mean if it's a t-mobile phone why doesn't it work with t-mobile networks?

Does it mean if you unlock your t-mobile device it won't work with t-mobile network again? It leaves me very confused. If i just get a t-mobile galaxy s2 that is not unlocked and i ask for the code to t-mobile so then i unlock the phone, will i be able to use t-mobile again?. I have seen some videos on youtube that you can get your unlock code just straight from t-mobile, is really that easy? I know it sounds kind of stupid, but i want to be sure before spending +$400.

Motorola Droid - Phone Unlocked But No Data From Rogers In Ontario / Get It Working

Just bought milestone from future shop in barrie (telus mobility only provider but no reception where i live except with rogers). Got phone unlocked. My rogers sim card works for phone, no problem. Had rogers data plan set up. Can't get it working. Rogers support will only go so far as to provide settings but won't tell me exactly how to configure. Surely someone else has already done this?

Lg Esteem Vs Connect - Comparison

I have an esteem got the connect a week ago and wanted to leave my input for everyone to know. So i tried all roms and kernels on my esteem and found best combo to be zvd cleaned up and zvd speed kernel. I use tsf shell which is a 55mb ram launcher but so worth it. I used overclocked for a month too. So i got the connect to see how it is and i really wanted to use 4g while on the phone. I did not realize how much a difference it would be. I was skeptical due to the smaller screen and no hdmi. And quite frankly i was very surprised

The lg connect with its massive ram is excellent at multitasking. It was faster snappier and better than my esteem overall while bloated. The screen is clearly much more vibrant more contrast and very nice colors better than the iphone 4s which my friend has. I am very impressed with the phone overall no lag no bugs and no overheating as others have claimed. Battery life i would say is 30-40 percent better than the esteem with the exact same setup of apps and all. The difference in screen size was unnoticeable and not worthy of mentioning honestly it did not bother me at all and i did not feel a difference. It is also alot nicer in the pocket but i did like the dock with my esteem which i dont have here and i realized i never use my hdmi out to be honest.

So would i recommend the lg connect? Yes i would i am sure you will feel a clear difference especially with the ram difference and 4g while on the phone. Im loving it. Will keep you updated with what i find. Btw i now have it rooted and de-bloated to a certain extent using just freeze. I still have the lg esteem and i switch between them occasionally to test some things out on 4g ability but nothing noticeable thus far.

Cracked Screen - Lg Esteem

Well, i was running and slipped cut my leg open right across my shin, could have gotten about 5-6 stitches but i don't have insurance but i do for my phone lol but at this point i read another person said the screen is not covered under insurance. So, i was looking for just the glass part but looks like they only sell the part as a whole unit. The digitizer is fine and so is the lcd cause the phone still works fine and other than the top layer being cracked and the lcd isn't bleeding etc. Only the glass broke and when i say broke its shattered/spider-ed pretty bad. So, i have a question. Does anyone know for sure that insurance will not cover this? And if it does not cover it maybe someone has a bricked esteem they want to sell me cheaper than this. Touch screen digitizer for lg metro pcs lg esteem ms910 + tools | ebay

I am kinda worried about that screen cause it says metro in the picture but its supposed to say lg and when you scroll down it says revolution ***? And i was reading they are not the same exact part.

Lg Esteem Vs Apple Iphone 4s

I've been an apple fan for 20 years. My girlfriend gave me an lg esteem for my birthday, and will pay 60 dollars a month for unlimited talk and data on metropcs's 4g lte network. My apple friends said i should reject her gift, and get an iphone 4s on sprint, verizon, or at&t. Verizon for the fewest dropped calls, sprint for unlimited data, and at&t if you want your iphone to surf and talk simultaneously.

Problem: i tried a demo of each phone for 15 minutes, and cannot decide what to do. So far the following seems true: iphone is more expensive than esteem (esteem is $250) and the iphone has a mandatory two year contract for at least $100/month. Metro's esteem has no contract and is 60 dollars month-to-month for unlimited talk and data on 4g lte in the bay area. Iphone is only 3g, not 4g. Iphone has a much longer battery life and is a little smaller and lighter. Esteem has a larger screen and surfs faster on the web. Iphone will back up everything to your computer, whereas only parts of the data can be backed up with the esteem, but i have no idea how to back up the esteem. Iphone's battery is built in, whereas the esteem has a replaceable 1500 mah and 3000 mah battery. I forgot to try "siri" on the iphone, but the esteem's talk to text seemed good, but failed on capitalizations and punctuations. Iphone had a better camera, but the esteem pictures on the screen looked better. Apple's iphone has up to 64gb of built in internal memory, whereas esteem has less even if you add a card.

Apple users say android is not good, and android users love their android phones. Can't find anyone who has used both often. So which should i chose, the esteem or iphone4s, and why ?
