How to unlock LG G5

Hi - I have just received the unlock code from EE for my LG G5 which is now out of contract.

 

However I can't see where to enter the code. When I insert the other SIM (different network) it just says 'SIM card not recognised' and nowhere to enter the unlock code.

 

Any ideas? 

 

Thanks

@Simons1   Type it in to the phone dialler pad.

Hi @Simons1

 

Welcome to the community.

 

Did @Chris_B's advice help? Were you able to type it into the dialler?

The dialler pad isn't visible at that point. Let me have another go and I'll report back.

 

Thanks

Just as a follow up....I tried several times and there was nowhere to input the code.

 

In the end I was advised to do 2945#*850# and the menu came up. Click network unlock, enter code and it worked immediately.
