Default Region lock. Note3 SM-N900

Hi there,

I have a sim unlocked SM-N900. I'm in Morocco now and use a local sim card to make phone calls. I also tried my Canadian sim card (Rogers) and I am able to make phone calls with Rogers sim card while in Morocco. There is no special sticker on the phone box mentioning any region lock. The phone is rooted.
My question is: Will I be able to use my canadian (Rogers) sim card in Canada ? Or is it possible that the phone could still be region locked? In this case using RegionLock Away could remove the lock ?

Model number: SM-N900
Baseband: N900XXUCMK1
Build Number: JSS15J.N900XXUCMK2
Phone is rooted

Thanks in advance

If your Rogers sim works in Morocco then it'll work in Canada, I'm Assuming it's using Roaming while in Morocco at least.

agree with @radicalisto, if your sim works there then it SHOULD work in your country as well... now just in case it doesnt work you dont have to worry, just flash one of the many region unlocked roms and you will be set..

Current Phone- Samsung Galaxy Note 3(N9005)



I have a "thank on sight" list, not many people are in it (mostly devs), BUT if i see a user that goes out of their way to help users then they will be added to it..
