Once again you’re on the setup page but this time, you won’t be bothered with Google Sign-in Page. Just click next, you’ll land to Wifi setup page. Again tap Next agree to LG License agreement and hit Done to complete Setup Wizard.

This method should work on other LG phones as well, but I’ve tried it on LS675 only.

  1. It worked like a charm. But one thing is after tapping on the human figure to bring up the accessibility modal press and hold the home key and not just press it

  2. Thanks to these instructions I was able to get phone unlocked. I bought from a 3rd party and they had it locked up on their google account. Have worked with them a week to try and get it unlocked and couldn’t. Tried every you tube video with no luck. Thank goodness I found this and it’s working like brand new.

  3. Did all that. Don’t have previous Google account info. Still says Configuring your phone. Without Google account, how can it configure? CAN IT configure? If not, then what’s the hard reset for???

    • Press volume up + volume down + power button simultaneously to bypass “configuring your phone”.
      This will give you “skip” option to bypass this screen

  4. I st can’t do it. I got the phone from my frenad it was her dead huabens and she does not no inty of the infermathion on it so what do I do.joyec

  5. Worked on my tribute 5 when the screen with the home button after pressing the little man I had to hold down the home button then it worked other wise It told me to finish setup. If you just tap home button it will say finish setup but if you hold it it will take you to Google

  6. 1 .. go to switch access and turn it on ..
    2 .. settings in switch access …
    3 .. assign key actions ….
    4 .. overview (assign volume down to it )
    then do what the admin said above …..
    5 .. before you press the home bottom first hold the volume down key at the back of the phone ……
    then the home bottom ….
    this should take you straight to the google search bar then continue from there …..

  7. Yea I have the same problem with my leg tribute HD. I’ve contacted Google , lg , and virgin mobile the service provider. They walked me threw a bunch of steps with no luck. I was told to send it to lg for replacement. It’s really a stupid feature

  9. To everyone, I had to do this there or four times in a row before it finally bypassed the google verification, but it did finally work.

  10. I think you have no idea what your talking about.
    Like everyone else, I have done the steps above and it tells me to finish set up. What set up is that, and if you are 100 % positive then get in touch with me. Cause it ain’t working for anyone else.
