If you own LG Tribute HD LS676 Please Follow this Tutorial – LG Tribute HD LS676 Activation Bypass
I find LG Tribute 5 LS675 from Boost Mobile as one the best value for money offerings , but the high priced monthly plans of Boost are a big turn off. When I bought LG Tribute 5 from Boost Mobile, I was clear that I’ll unlock and use
it as a GSM phone. If you’re in the same boat then without activating the phone you can just bypass the activation process, root your phone and unlock it for any GSM network worldwide. Bypassing activation screen is quite a simple process. Insert battery, turn on the phone and follow this easy step by step process.

When you turn your LG Tribute 5 for the first time, you’ll land on Accessibility settings page. Click next and proceed to Language selection page.
Select your preferred language and click next.
Now you’re on Wifi setup screen you can either connect to your Wifi network or just skip it. Wifi setup can be done later as well.
As soon as you click next on wifi setup page you’ll see a Hands Free Activation Popup. It will try to activate the phone for quite some time but as the phone is not activated yet, it will stop and show Network error. Click OK to proceed
As the activation failed, It’ll say your phone is not configured you can skip this step. Just hit on “Skip” and proceed.
In the second screenshot above you’ll notice there is no option to skip this step. This happened once when I did a factory reset on my LS675 via recovery. I was stuck at this screen while completing the setup wizard. At this point, you’ve to press and hold, Power, volume up & volume down buttons, simultaneously. On doing this correctly, you’ll get the skip option as in the second picture above.
