Default [Q] Sim unlock SGH-M919M on 4.3

I have a metro pcs galaxy s4 with the stock tmobile firmware 4.3, I took it to a local store but they couldn't unlock it. As you know I can't downgrade to 4.2.2 because of the Knox security, so do you guys know of any way to unlock my phone?

use Fast GSM to buy the unlock codes (29.99) ... while on the TMO firmware... I just jumped through hoops to do it... was the only way Ive found... Trying to track down a MPCS stock (rooted hopefully) ROM, and flashing back... can keep you informed about switching roms once i find one

I don't know if its the easiest way but there is a way to "dual boot" a rom installed on the SD card which gets around knox. Then you could run 4.2.x and do the debug menu unlock.

Alternatively try this as it has worked for some people, including my GF with an AT&T S4 http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2470551
