Hi guys I am new to doing these things on GS3, Is is the same thing on Note 2?

I'm sorry in advanced if there's already a thread that answers this question but I looked and searched around to no avail/

I am just careful as the Note 2 is simpler as I easily find solutions to my problem here in the forum.

I am a lurker and just made an account to ask this one question that no one seemed to ask yet: Is there any way I could unlock a GS3 with 4.4.2?

It's unrooted as for some reason SuperSU isn't working. I am going to try to see what I can do about that.

This was my brother's phone, He then upgraded to 4.4.2 then asked me why his new carrier sim doesn't work and was asking for an unlock code.

TLDR: Upgraded to 4.4.2 and out of options for unlocking network.

TYIA guys.

Youll have to buy an unlock code online. Ive seen reports of some places charging just a few bucks. No other known way right now.

If you or a friend are (or were) on AT&T at some point in time, you might be able to request an unlock code via this form

Yeah I will try that, But Bell Mobility costs 50 bucks to do that. So I might just look for an unlocking service site. Anyone here know one that works with the gs3 OTA 4.4.2?

Thank you for the reply.
