Before continuing to two different methods for lg v10 unlock. I give you some tricks to recover network unlock code/ sim unlock code from your lg v10 mobile. When you mobile locked it’s unlock code must be within its android os file system. So first download any file explorer of lg v10, lg bridge also a good file explorer but I am not sure it can go deep into file system.
First go to lg v10 setting and enable root explorer and enable mount file system and also allow su superuser. Now search inside root folder there is an efs folder under efs folder find nvdata file. Nv data is a non volatile memory which contain all information about your gsm sim network. It may possible that you can find network locking code inside nv data file. So remove that code and unlock your lg v10. Also search inside root/carrier folder, root/system, system/bin folder for carrierlock file or networklock file or simlock file. If you find any such file that has hidden unlock code in hexadecimal. So open those files with hexa editor and calculate your unlock code. It is not necessary that such file always exist inside your lg v10 this is just one trick.
