LG cell phones purchased from network providers are usually restricted from accessing other networks. To remove this restriction, you first need to purchase a special code from a phone unlocking company that offers remote phone unlocking solutions. The unlocking method for all LG cell phones, including the LG KE970, is the same. The difference is the unlock code from phone to phone. You also ned to add a prefix, which is specific to LG KE970 handsets.

Find your cell phone's IMEI number by entering "*#06#". The IMEI number of a cell phone is its unique identity number, which is used for generating its specific unlock code.

Choose your current provider from the list.
Enter the phone's IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number in the required field. To find out the IMEI number beforehand, type, in the cellphone, "# 0 6 #." A 15-digit number will appear.
Click "Add to Cart" on the website, proceed to the next page, and click "Checkout." Enter the required billing information. The unlock code and unlocking instructions will be sent to your e-mail address.
Power on your LG KE970, and compose: "*865625#(code provided by website)#". When you press "Send," your phone screen should read "Network Lock Deactivated."
