I have a Galaxy S4 and am running on android 4.4 kitkat and have root access if that helps any. i have verizon and want to switch to a different carrier but dont want to buy a new phone. Is there a way to unlock it somehow using root access. i saw a method online where they used the dialer codes... but unfortunately verizon disabled dialer codes so i cant find my IMEI or whatever its called/... number to unlock it. anybody know how to do it.

I'm not sure which carrier you are considering but for att and tmobile you should just put in the sim card and i believe add the apn's (not 100% on that part) and it should work.

All Verizon phones, including the S4, are carrier unlocked. They have to be per the deal Verizon made with the FCC in their last spectrum purchase.

The G3 is sick I wanna pick one up but my upgrade is in October and I know the note 4 will be coming out then. I might still go with the g3 though because it's looking like you'll have a custom recovery soon enough, which won't happen with the note.
