If you are stuck with Note 3 Region Locked 4.4.2 where CF's RegionLock Away no longer works , you can try sending an E Mail to Samsung Germany / Samsung Austria for an unlock code to totally unlock your Europe region locked note 3....I have a Note 3 N9005...I got it with 4.4.2 installed so I couldn't install CF's RegionLock Away app because as you know the app doesn't work with 4.4.2...From the last few days I was searching like hell how to unlock my Note 3 so that I can use the phone in my home country India...Hundreds of XDA threads & several Google searches didn't yield any positive results...I didn't want to pay for the 3rd party unlock services because many people in this forums have mentioned that , even after paying for an unlock service , their phones still didn't get unlocked...

So, what i did was , I sent almost 10 E Mails to different European Samsung customer care department like Samsung Romania , Samsung Austria , Samsung Germany , Samsung Slovakia etc...

Today I received an unlock code from Samsung Austria , Samsung Romania & also from Samsung Germany...I know it's only one single code but i didn't want to wait for a long time to unlock my N9005...So, I contacted almost 10 Samsung European country's customer care departments...And today I received the unlock code from the above 3 mentioned Samsung customer care depts...

So, no need to pay for an unlock code...If you have a Europe region locked Note 3 , just send emails to Samsung Germany & Samsung Austria & you will get your unlock code within just 4-6 days...

I'm really happy that my N9005 is fully unlocked now...

Thanks for reading...

EDIT :-
Since there are huge number of messages coming in asking for the unlock req to Samsung, I have decided to post the format of the letter here in this thread..

So, read this post of mine here please :- http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=75

If you can use your local SIM card with your N9005, then your Note 3 is already unlocked...I don't have clear idea why you can't use 4G...If your network provider provides you 4G LTE signal & you don't know how to connect to an LTE signal in your N9005 or if the LTE doesn't work , try changing the network mode to 4G ONLY using a software called " Advanced Signal Status " from Google playstore...

thank you, actually, many guys have the same situation with me in my country, the IMEI and SN will be changed if we update to 4.4.2, and will unable to use again if we try to change the IMEI,

And seems my N9005 is from Germany
