Battery Full Network SIM lock after flashing Official 4.4.2 Rom

Morning all,

I've installed the mexican 4.4.2 Official Kitkat build version on my Note 3 n900w8. After the install (it went flawless) I noticed I've now got a mexican boot screen (no biggie) but I'm now getting a network lock on my sim card, like the lock settings are tied to the firmware and not the modem??

I may just restore back to 4.3 from the Rogers build (I like official builds) but I'm looking for ideas on WHY this happened, also ways to avoid it.I'd love to run 4.4.2 properly without needing a SIM Unlock.

Having said that, are their any non-code unlocks for this? Or is it all code-based unlocking on this model??

Thanks All.

If you check out polish_pat's thread, it'll guide you through the flash process. What I think you have done is substituted the Mexican CSC in place of your own and locked it (I could be wrong) . --- you need to use the Rogers one, check his thread out it has the links etc in it also
