Default Engineer Code unlock

I used to have a Note 2 and used the engineer code method as mentioned in the opening post and can confirm that it does SIM unlock the Note 2.
I haven't been able to test it on a locked Note 3 as mine is already SIM unlocked.

I can confirm that the 'Network unlock trick/Engineer code' did not work on my UK Vodafone network-locked International Note 3 as i could not proceed from the service mode using *#0011#. I searched the efs folder in vain for the hidden menu to activate the service mode (which appears deactivated by Samsung in 4.4). I told Vodafone customer service yesterday that i'd be going abroad and needed the unlock code for the 3 months old contract phone, and moaned and groaned about the 20 cost which was reduced to 10. Unlock code expected in a few days time.

its apparently a law now (in australia at least) that they cant lock you, you have the right to use a different sim if you want. so its pretty easy here to you just call your provider and bam it gets donw. my note 3 is thru optus and its unlocked from factory
