I got a Sprint Note 3 from craigslist. Everything works. Got a great deal on it.
Now i want it to work on the Att network which i know is GSM and Sprint is mainly a CDMA carrier.
Well, i read the thread on the UICC unlock and it looks like that phone can work on GSM carriers after all.
I am not a Sprint customer so i can't get it "Internationaly Unlocked"

What way can i go about it? CAn i only flash to other CDMA carriers?
What route can i go. Will there ever be a GSM unlock?

It can always be flashed to boost. Pretty sure there's some threads floating around about it.

Without getting it internationally unlocked there is no way to use it on GSM at all ...sprint is the only way to get it unlocked

start reading this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2593305 all your questions have been discussed there
The short answer is "no, without being a Sprint customer and having Sprint unlock international GSM, you will not be able to use the GSM portion of this phone"
not sure why you bought the phone in the first place, sounds like this is Sprint bad ESN phone - an expensive paperweight unless it was cheap and you want to use it as wifi only device. You might be able to flash it to some prepaid cdma carrier like boost mobile, But that is not trivial. and boost is also subsidiary of sprint, so if the phone is reported lost or stolen on sprint, not sure if it will be ok for boost, probably ok

They have, but as already said, we need Sprint to internationally unlock it. I'm in a situation where I cannot do that because I bought the sprint phone in the US and I live in another country
