So far, I can't find the [NETWORK LOCK] options to choose after [SIMULATOR]

Thanks

ok so help someone who does not know is there an advantage to unlocking your phone. I have a t mobile samsung S3, and use t mobile. Do not go out of my area. THanks....Happy holidays

>so help someone who does not know is there an advantage to unlocking your phone

If you go on a foreign vacation/business trip and you want to buy a local sim card with prepaid minutes,
instead of paying huge rooming fees to ATT.

You will of course still be paying your regular ATT bill while your are gone.
And still would have to obligate to the 2 year contract.

Insert a SIM from another provider into your phone.

Go to dailer screen. press *#197328640#.

press [1]DEBUG SCREEN
Press [8]PHONE CONTROL
Press [5] SIMULATION
Press [6] NETWORK LOCK
Press [3] PERSO SHA256 OFF <----- get Menu Not Exist, Press Back Key, Current command is 18543

Any guide to make it work on AT&T Note (I) will be appreciated.


I got similar situation with you just with different code.
I suggest you assume that step finish and process with next step.
I also cannot follow the home / back key and return to normal screen.
Just reentry the code then you are in the page previously left.
Then perform the last step and reboot.
My phone did not ask me for unlock code but since my foreign Sim
do not work here, I don't know whether it's complete or not.
Good luck


Thanks for taking the time to respond.

After the last step, I don't see any option to choose:

Press [3] PERSO SHA256 OFF <----- get Menu Not Exist, Press Back Key, Current command is 18543
Press [4] NW Lock NV Data INITIALLIZ <------- do not see this option

Where do you see the option for NW Lock NV Data INITIALIZ?

BTW, to go back, select the menu button which is the left most button on the row of "buttons" at the bottom of phone screen.

Wow! nice.

Until it is made "illegal to unlock a phone"

Thanks, it worked.

Thnx

what are the advantage of unlocking a phone? you cant take it from Verizon to Virgin Mobile, correct?

is it just for taking out of the country advantage?

awesome

i.e. if you are on at&t, T-Mobile, Straight Talk etc, you can use it
or use it outside

if verizon phone is not gsm, you cant do anything

SHA256_ENABLE_FLAG [0]
SHA256_OFF => NOT CHANGE
Does anybody know what this mean?


same question

I followed the steps. Put in a friends Tmobile sim, made a call & just like that - It was unlocked & ready for adventure. Thank you. Suddenly my phone is worth more

I did everything how I know if I unlocked already? I don't have other sim card yet.

I'm confused. Trying to unlock my ATT Samsung Galaxy S3. When I click dismiss, it takes me to home page. Then what? I don't see anyhwere to enter *#197328640#

amazingly, this thread just shows how many galaxy s3's are out there....its true when analysts say this phone is outselling the iphones..

crrazyy.

Hi,

Tried to do this with an S3 in Indai but didn't work.

Its all well till [3]Perso SHA256 OFF > (after choosing this option, wait about 30 seconds, then go back one step by pressing the Menu button then select Back,

When i go back to the Network Lock option, there is no Option 4 NW Lock NV Data INITIALLIZ

Instead, Option 4 is RAT_FREE_SUPPRITNG ON

Please help!!!

delete... see next post

I also have the same question

Thanks Op. This method works perfectly with my Galaxy S3 T999 (T-Mobile)

I followed this process on my Note2. However I'm not sure if I'm successful. How to ensure that my phone is unlocked!?

ATT note 2 unlocked! Try T-Mobile sim card already!

Ask someone use T-Mobile and try it up. It works for me.

Thanks for suggestions!
Do you guys know if any device info that I can see to confirm that My phone is not locked. PS: its hard for me to get a T-Mobile Sim now!

jomarrod said:   now, let's find the unlock procedure for the iPhones

If it's an AT&T then try this:
Step 1: On your iPhone, open Settings > General > About, and note down you IMEI number, or remember it, depends.

Step 2: Log into AT&Tís website, tap in your account credentials, and proceed to AT&Tís Wireless Support Chat.

Step 3: Give them your IMEI which you made a note of in Step 1.

Step 4: Within 72 hours, youíll be sent an e-mail notification stating your unlock is ready.

Step 5: Finally, youíll need to follow the remaining instructions in the e-mail, which consist of syncing and restoring to complete the process.

can I try this without sim card installed?

worked on my tmo and att gs3! "awesomesauce"!

Yep I unlocked AT&T Iphone 4 by following your direction few months ago. It was almost impossible to unlock AT&T iPhone to work on T-Mobile. I'm AT&T customer thru corporate iPhone acct and only had the phone for a year as I heard you got to be AT&T customer in good standing including passed beyond 2 yr contract.

Thanks OP and all other contributors on this thread. Is there anyway to unlock Note 2 and S3 from Sprint to be able use oversea? Thanks in advance.

worked great on the note 2, many thx

Looks like this procedure needs to be repeated everytime we restart a phone

I had the same problem with my AT&T Galaxy S3. After I upgraded to Jelly Bean 4.1.1 I found the "NW Lock NV Data INITIALLIZ". I cut up an old prepaid T-Mobile SIM, stick it into my S3 and it worked. Thank you OP !!

Hello, I have att note 2. I tried to unlock it but it does not work. Please show me what I need to unlock it. Thank you for your time.
