Hello guys...To cut the long story short , I got a Romanian N9005 with me in India...My uncle bought the set there in Romania & sent to me in India...The box clearly says ( in Romanian language ) that the product must be activated with a European SIM...I would like to know, what my options are to unlock this thing in India...Is there any unlock option available for this model yet ???

The box doesn't mention any kind of carrier & the boot logo only mentions " Samsung galaxy Note III N9005 " without any operator logo...I still haven't inserted my SIM in this because this supports MicroSIM & i have only regular sized SIM cards...I will be getting a Normal to Micro SIM cutter asap but i just wanted to know is this model locked to European networks only or is an unlocked model ?

Here is some of the details of the set :-
________________________________

Model No : SM-N9005
Android Version : 4.4.2
BB Version : N9005XXUENB1
Build Number : KOT49H.N9005XXUENB4

Does Chainfire's RegionLock Away app works for N9005 4.4.2 ????

Any info/help will be appreciated...Thank You!!!

Dude your phone is unlocked. You can use any card. You will not have the automatic settings for your local network but you can put them manually.
