    Ok something is rotten in Denmark. I called VZW to find out what additional steps I need to unlock the G2. They swore up and down that it was fully unlocked. Went back to AT&T and we tried a different SIM. I was able to send a text message but got no data and was not able to make calls at all. Not a happy camper right now.

    Like I said, it's not just your phone because mine wouldn't work with an AT&T SIM card either. I'd say you'll have to contact LG for this one.

    Either way it is BS. VZW is supposed t make their phones completely unlocked. I have talked to the guys at AT&T and people have brought over S3's and S4's as well as others with no issues. I should not have to jump through hoops with a supposed completely unlocked phone.

    I think voice will only work on voice over LTE the G2 still does voice over cdma On Verizon not sure why data wouldn't be working though. I'm sure there is some other steps to make it work you just have to bypass the cdma radios and I'm not quite sure how to do that.

    I'm sure there is another step but VZW doesn't want to come off of it. They are trying to feed me a line of BS that the phone is completely unlocked. What really ticks me off is this is my phone. I paid outright for it and I am not even under contract with VZW anymore. I'm on month to month. I should be able to do with it what I want.

    Ok just to avoid this hassle I am considering just flipping my VZW G2 and buying an AT&T G2 outright. They are $464. Any differences between the two models other than the obvious rear button configuration??? I have never had a smartphone from AT&T. Do they lock theirs down in any other ways than VZW does???
