SIM Lock

I have a LG Tribute HD that operates with a specific SIM card. I misplaced the original SIM. How do I unlock the SIM slot to work with other cards?

    Blueginger99, unlocking the device would require you speaking to your carrier. If the device can be unlocked, they would need to advise on the steps and provide the necessary codes to do so.

    I spoke to Sprint, but they required the previous account holders information which is still linked to the phone. Since I bought my phone used I don't have access to that information and can't get it. Is there any other way? I read that Unlockbase is a trustworthy unlock code provider. Their video said that with the unlock code they provide instructions on how to unlock the phone.

    Blueginger99, this would need to be provided by Sprint. This can only come from the carrier.
