As stated above, unlocking won't do that, the original phone firmware would need to be altered to allow that.

Hi,, yes, unlocking your phone means you can use any network sim.

Hi @madforegolf

 

Your title says "Software Update"

 

I recall your previous thread here > Android/software-upgrade-for-lg-g3.

 

Unlocking wouldn't change the situation connected to firmware / software updates. 

 

Unlocking the phone to be able to use all Networks will still allow you to use a Vodafone Uk SIM card ,and any other including both other local and foreign SIM cards.

I'm afraid not as I mentioned. 

 

There are custom roms but doing that can bring its own ramifications.

As said above unlocking won't do that.
