What people are saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cracks Easily I have so many mixed feelings about this phone. It's lighting fast, it's very powerful. I was coming from an LG G4, so there was a big difference in performance. This is the only phone I've ever broken. Just like the CNET drop test on the G6, 3 drops is all it took. So I blamed myself for being so clumsy and bought a new one promising myself I would be more careful. 3 drops later and it was shattered as well. A major trade off, for me, was LG taking away the home screen app icon customization feature. I've had to download 3 apps to bring back only 75% of that functionality. That feature was one of the reasons I'd been brand loyal for 7 years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need Grateful amazing features but the charger port break easily

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Non-existent Updates Will not be buying another LG phone. The lack of OS updates is embarrassing. Factory unlocked does, by no means, mean open.

Could LM-V405UA be unlocked? If YES, will it work with other GSM carriers such as T-Mobile and MINT Mobile? Which version of LG V40 is recommended for use with MINT Mobile?

Asked by: dhkim68
I have this model previously on AT&T and unlocked. I use it on Red Pocket mobile an MVNO on AT&T network. Works great except no tethering or Hotspot. AT&T locks tethering in their custom firmware installed on their branded phones. Tethering lock is unaffected by phone unlock.
