    NOTE: This is for Samsung Galaxy Note 4 older version released.

    In case you’ve bought Galaxy Note 3 device from a carrier, then it means that it is locked on that particular network. If you want to use it with any other carrier/ network, then you will be forced to unlock the Galaxy Note 3 SIM for it to work.
    Usually a SIM for Note 3 is locked because major carriers don’t want consumers to use the purchased devices with other carriers or networks.

    This guide will teach you how to successfully unlock SIM from other carriers and use it with the same Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet. In this post you will find two alternative methods, one will tell you how to SIM Unlock the Note 3 for free, while the other will require you to buy an unlock code from a website specialized in unlocked SIM for smartphones worldwide.

    Please note that if you do manage to SIM Unlock your Galaxy Note 3, then this won’t necessarily mean that it will work for all networks or carriers. That is because usually carriers are using different GSM bands and not all are compatible with your Note 3 model.
    Make sure to check the bands ( 2G, 3G or 4G) your phone supports before getting to the tutorial. Also, note that this guide might not work at all.

    Reasons why you should SIM Unlock your device:

    Switch easily between Carriers while using the same phone.
    Buy local SIM cards while travelling abroad and avoid any Roaming fees.
    Unlock the Note 3 phone from your own house
    No need for rooting, installing kernels or custom ROMs
    Also, use this guide only if you’re an advanced user. We cannot be blamed in case you brick your phone nor in case you lose any important data in the process.

    How to SIM Unlock the Samsung Galaxy Note 3:

    1. Launch your smartphone’s dialer.
    2. Enter the following code : *#197328640#
    3. Press the Menu softkey.
    4. Press Back.
    5. Press Menu and then open the Key input.
    6. Enter 1, press OK.
    7. Press Menu and press Back again.
    8. Tap [1]UMTS
    9. Tap [1]Debug Screen
    10. Tap [8]Phone Control
    11. Tap [6]Network Lock
    12. Tap Options and then tap [3]Perso SHA256 OFF
    13. Press Menu and Back.
    14. Press [6]COMMON
    15. Tap [4]NW Lock NV Data INITIALLIZ.

    If the process was successful, you should see the following text: “Asterisk Pound One Nine Seven Three Two Eight Six Four Zero Pound. The Galaxy Note 3 will restart and boot in normal mode.

    We cannot be held responsible in case your brick the phone or it becomes unusable after using this tutorial. That’s why this guide is destined to be used by advanced users.

    If the FREE SIM Unlock For Galaxy Note 3 method listed above doesn’t work, then you can always choose to buy an unlock code.

    Find your Galaxy Note 3 IMEI Code by going to Settings > About Device > Status, or you can choose to open the Dial Pad and type *#06#

    After you find your phone’s IMEI you should look for websites that sell unlocking codes and buy one.

    These were all the steps that we had for you, now you should test the tutorial. If neither method works, then you can always choose to contact your carrier and ask for an unlock code. Some carriers will offer it for free.

    To get the UMTS:
    1: open phone dial pad
    2: press *#0011#
    3: press menu, select BACK
    4: press menu, select key input
    5: press Q0000
    and you all will get the umts and other menus
