Buy the phone. ... You don't even have to open the box. ... The imei number is on the box (I would open just to make sure of everything) give the a call and if you don't get a code. ... Give the phone back or ask tesco to unlock or use one of these websites to get the code

They aren't doing it to be nice, it makes good business sense to make your phone accept a 3 sim so they can start taking money from you.
You can also get a Note3 unlocked for 7 in about 1hr on eBay

Yeah CPW and P4U sell unlocked handsets with their contracts as they get them in direct rather than via a carrier.
