    What does "Your phone is not personalized" mean?

    I just bought an LG Chocolate BL-40 and I need to have it unlocked. I already bought the code to unlock it but when I go through the steps to unlock. It stops me just before I would be able to enter the code and says "Your phone is no personalized". WTF? Anyone have any idea what it means and why I can't unlock the phone?

    Thanks.

    Modern mobile phones give you a number of personalization options where you can decide on your list of favorite homepages and set up the timing to be swapped between them. You can do thousands of personal settings on your mobile phones and lock them up if you like. I believe your phone is waiting for your settings to be personalized. But even that should be an option and not a compulsory one.

    I have the AT&T LG G Flex D950. I followed the instructions & got the message the NETWORK LOCK was successful. But when I shut down the phone, put in a T-Mobile SIM card & turned on my phone. It does not recognize the T-Mobile SIM card. When I try the menu again with the AT&T SIM I now see "Your phone is not personalized."

    Something is not right. And I do not believe phudson126 explanation makes any sense.

    Edit: I will try something else as a possible solution tomorrow & will update.

    SOLVED.
    The message "Your phone is not personalized." means the phone is unlocked.

    Guess I had a bad SIM.
    AOK now. A new SIM & a couple restarts later.
