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.

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.
