[Q] US Cellular Galaxy SIII (SCH-R530U) on T-Mobile network
I ordered a Samsung Galaxy SIII (US-Cellular) on ebay and tried to follow the instructions below:
1. Type *#197328640# and it brings up the factory service menu
2. Select (1) UMTS
3. Select (1)Debug Screen
4. Select (8) Phone Control
5. Select (6)Network lock
6. Inside the Network lock menu, Pick option (3) Perso SHA256 off, Passed that is a screen that says something like "no options in this menu, current command is 11863", Wait for 30-60 secs, from there hit the menu button on bottom left of phone to bring up options, Select "Back".
7. The last command should have brought you back into the Network Lock menu, at the bottom is (4) NW Lock NV Data Initialize, Select it. You might be asked a saftey are you sure, some people not, after it begins that process wait a good 60 sec the reboot. Thats it! Phones Unlocked
Somehow the phone is not reacting on the USSD 'secret' codes. I can push the hash-button, but nothing happens. I found on a forum that I should root my phone. So I did through Odin. But superSU keeps crashing and I get the error: Security Notice, an attempt to access a secure area...
I don't really need a rooted phone, would be nice, but I would like to use USSD codes, like *#06# for example.
