How to Unlock an LG VX8600 CDMA Phone


The LG VX8600 is a flip phone operating on the Verizon Wireless network. The phone comes with a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth technology, Global Positioning System (GPS) and built-in security system. When the phone's keypad is locked, your phone will still ring and you can still answer calls, but you won't be able to make outgoing phone calls or check your voice or text messages. You need to unlock the phone's keypad in order to check your messages or make any calls. The phone can be unlocked even if you forget your unlock code.

Things You'll Need

  • ESN DEC number

Unlock Code

  • Flip open the phone so the keypad is exposed and press any button to wake the phone up from sleep mode.

  • Enter the four digit unlock code using the phone's keypad. The default code is the last four digits of your cell phone number.

  • Press the "OK" button to submit the code and unlock the phone.

Forgotten Code

  • Turn the phone over and remove the battery cover and battery. Press down on the upper plastic edge of the cover and slide it in a downwards motion. The plastic cover will give way to the battery which can be pulled out of the phone.

  • Locate the sticker on the phone hidden behind the battery. Write down the last four digits of the ESN DEC number.

  • Replace the battery and battery cover and turn the phone on by pressing and holding down the "Power" button.

Tips & Warnings

  • If neither code works, contact your cell phone provider and speak with a representative. Explain that you forget your unlock code and need it reset. You can find the number for customer service on your last cell phone statement.
