If you want to use your LG Metro phone with another carrier, you will need to unlock the device. Unlocking the network on your LG phone is legal and easy to do. With the use of an unlock code, which you must obtain from your wireless provider or through a mobile unlocking company (see Resources), you can remove the network lock to allow you free rein on any other GSM or CDMA network.

Remove the battery on your LG phone and locate the SIM card slot. Insert a non-Cingular or AT&T; card into the SIM card slot.
