Cell phone programmers: Is it possible to unlock a Tracfone CDMA cellphone?

I have an L45C (LG Optimus Net) and L55C (LG Optimus Q) that I obtained from this deal:
NET10 LG Optimus Net Android Smartphone (Refurbished) $19.99 FS 08-15-2013 -

They are both Tracfone phones. I would like to unlock them and from what I've read they have some special software or setting or something that prevents them from being unlockable. Has anyone here ever hooked up a Tracfone to one of the CDMA tools that can modify information, like ESN MEID etc. Is there any way to get the special software off of the phone?

It seems that if I root the phone and write a new ROM that still won't unlock it from the Tracfone system. I've already figured out how to get the Master Subsidy Lock (MSL/SPC)code [], but shouldn't that be all I need to unlock the phone? If someone could break this down for me in a very technical way what you know about unlocking Tracfones, their special software, etc.
