    ^^Sorry. AT&T has the best network. Though networks are subjective depending on the area, AT&T has the best network (including LTE) overall and more importantly its GSM! Aio is the prepaid arm of AT&T I would suggest anyone who is visiting US to pickup either Aio or Straight Talk. If you want something cheaper, stick to T Mobile. Network is decent enough.

    There is not a single thread which gives all the information regarding the LS980. also i was getting lot of pm's regarding the GSM unlock. so basically this thread will have all the information, if anything is left out please feel free so message me or in thread. Phone Config LG-G2-LS980 Phone Drivers LS980 Drivers My Experience Personally i was a Samsung fan until they came out with the Kn0x security. i had 2 choice the Note 3 and the LG G2, since the Note 3 had issues with data not working on CDMA mode and the G2 was and still is wallet friendly, so i decided to go with the G2 and till date i DO NOT regret it. LAG is something that is simply not in its dictionary, super smooth. Like the HTC One this phone is also sealed and comes in 2 variants 16 and 32 Gigs. Initially only 2 colors Black and White, now the actual(international) site has many different ones. This one is a LCD compared to the S4 with AMOLED, To be frank only if you have the two phones together you might see the difference. I found the G2 to be more vibrant and a lil brighter side compared to the S4. 1000 times more accurate smartstay display than the S4, Same with auto brightness. Feels much lighter than the S4 and the build quality is anyday better than S4, feels solid in hand. Many have debated about the volume and power keys being at the back, actually its something you have to try and then understand, now if i handle any other phone than my G2 i tend to Tap the display 2 times softly to get the screen going, like the home or power button, im so used to it now. Tap 2 times on display to lock the screen & same to to light the display back again. Initially when i first got the phone i used to tap hard thinking that was the right way and 7/10 times it used to work, did not know that one has to tap very lightly as possible. Soft tap 2 times gets it locked and vice-versa 10/10 times. Its actually easier to use volume rockers in the center position then one side like anyother phone. Theres more to this phone and i dont have the patience nor time to explain everything. Phone definitely requires a case to protect it from fall, i have the Spigen Slim Armour. Runs on 4.2.2JB and 2 updates have been released till date. LS980ZV7 (Initial Release) LS980ZV8 (Security Update) LS980ZVA (Sprint Spark and loki-killer) Not used in India so i have not taken it. LS980ZVC (KitKat 4.4.2 OS Update) Also if you are a custom ROM freak DO NOT INSTALL the ZVA update as it removes the ability to do that. People who have taken it do not worry as there is a work around. Custom ROM installation for people who have taken ZVA update. Only if you understand everything mentioned in the above link proceed else you just might end up with a hard brick.

Or after root use FreeGee from Google Play (Requires root access) Install and backup EFS. How to get you MSL/SPC Easiest method to get SPC: Dial ##443336772# and your SPC/MSL will be displayed on the screen! Probably this will work for other LG phones also. [Credit goes to phonegeek] How to Gain Root Access Root FIle Works with All Baseband Updated ioroot.zip where did i get this ? SOURCE 1 After you have downloaded the file required for root, Put the phone in Debug mode, for this under settings go to Developer Options. If you do not have Developer Options under settings simple go to Settings/About Phone/Software Information under this tab on Build Number 10 times continuously and it will enable the Developer Options in your phone. 2 Under display settings set the screen timeout to 5 minutes(you can set it back to your liking later when you are done with root) 3 Connect your phone to PC/Laptop 4 Under pull down notification change the USB settings from MTP to Charge Only 5 Unzip the ioroot file and from the folder execute the run.bat file 6 The command prompt will ask you to press any key as show in pic below 7 You will be prompted to toggle USB connection shown marked in red, three ways you can toggle that, show in marked yellow, select the first one, remove usb connection from the phone and re-plug it back. the PRESS ENTER. 8 Your phone will show toggled notification and also it will ask you to allow USB Debugging with the computer showing the computers RSA key, Mark "Always allow from this computer" & select ok. The command prompt it will warn you again about loosing warranty and more warnings, this is the last point to decide to continue or press CTRL+C to cancel. PRESS ENTER.

How to Unroot Access Superuser app, go to settings of the app & look for Full unroot. Select it and wait for the phone to reboot. Recovery for KitKat 4.4.2 LS980ZVC SOURCE GSM Unlock For G2 LS980 This is a temporary GSM unlock & not a permanent or a solid one. Two known issues, you cant access Wi-Fi settings, as it crashes if you try to access, and you cant dial any number without adding 0 before it. Example: Sunny Leons phone number is 6969696969, to call her you gotta dial 06969696969. If you dial direct 6969696969 the phone app crashes and your phone switches to GSM mode if you are in CDMA mode. As far as i know these are only 2 known bugs this unlock has. hope we get a more stable unlock. Install ROM Toolbox Lite 1 Run Rom Toolbox Lite and select performance marked in red 2 Select build.prop editor marked in red 3 Select search using the magnifying glass icon below marked in red 4 In search field type "build.target" as shown in pic below 5 Select "ro.build,target_operator" as show in pic below 6 Change value from "SPR" to "spr" as show in pic below and press ok marked in yellow. 7 Reboot popup will come, select ok and reboot the phone. Your phone should be GSM unlocked now. Install HIAPN or Tweakker for APN settings of your service provider. Install Telinfo to switch between CDMA(CDMA Auto PRL) & GSM(GSM Auto PRL) Permanent Unlock for the LG-G2-LS980

On your desktop, open a command prompt or terminal, and go to the directory where you installed the Android SDK tools (or make sure fastboot is in your $PATH) At the prompt, type $ fastboot oem get_unlock_data The returned string will be used to retrieve your unlock key. Example: On a Windows Desktop, the returned string format would be fastboot oem get_unlock_data (bootloader) 0A40040192024205#4C4D3556313230 (bootloader) 30373731363031303332323239#BD00 (bootloader) 8A672BA4746C2CE02328A2AC0C39F95 (bootloader) 1A3E5#1F53280002000000000000000 (bootloader) 0000000 Paste together the 5 lines of output into one continuous string without (bootloader) or ‘INFO’ or white spaces. Your string needs to look like this: 0A40040192024205#4C4D355631323030373731363031303332323239#BD008A672BA4746C2CE02328A2AC0C39F951A3E5#1F532800020000000000000000000000 3- Unlock Check if your device can be unlocked by pasting this string in the pecific field on the Motorola website, and clicking “Can my device be unlocked?” NOTE: If your device is unlockable, a "REQUEST UNLOCK KEY" button will now appear at the bottom of that page. after you got the code type the following : fastboot oem unlock and wait your device to reboot ! 4- Enjoy 5- to relock, (pointless, isn't it?) $ fastboot oem lock credits

    Thanks arun for pointing me to this thread.. 1) Well you have a lot of cheaper prepaid plans over here so buzz me if you need info. Do not buy any plan till you yourself see the coverage in the area you will be living in. The coverage maps are different than ground reality. T-Mobile is spotty network and so is att. Verizon is the best and has most extensive coverage. There are Verizon mvnos too. 2) USA is a land of deals. If one is smart enough to look around one can get anything for a fraction of a cost or for pennies. This is all I could say as far as phones are concerned. :-)

    I use Thomas Cook Borderless Multicurrency Prepaid Card. The personalized service is the advantage. If I need to add funds, I would transfer using Net Banking to their bank account and would ask the representative by email to load the card with the credit. Conversion rate is better than banks (at least HDFC Bank) as the RM in HDFC Bank said agents like Thomas Cook can give better rates since they deal with lot more currency exchange than banks do. BTW Verizon has the best network in US. It is CDMA, so you might want to arrange a clean ESN handset and get it activated. Prepaid plan is available for $45 with unlimited talk and text, $20 for 3 GB 4G LTE data.

    I have been using axis bank travel card. They are most reliable as far I am using past few years. Now about SIM card, do not buy SIM cards at airport they are damm expensive, suggest go to bestbuy store or staples and pick up tmobile pay as you go phone would come for $10 and it does have some balance. If u pick up regular sim you would get that for $50 with voice and data. It's your choice if to go for only voice then $10 bucks phone makes sense or else pick up regular SIM card. Let me know if u need any further details. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    selling HCCs, Blank RUIMs, raising proper SRs, are very old tricks of earning money by RW's staff members as there is no check and audit mechanism in place for the same. This reminded me of an instance few years back, when 3 members of one RW were fired cos they did the same with Corporate Vice President of RCOM, who was on surprise visit and nobody, even at circle level, knew about his visit.
