I have rooted my Samsung Galaxy S4 gt i9515 in pursuit of gaining access to network locked simcard. My brother bought me this phone from Saudi Arabia. But here in India it is not allowing me to use any Indian carrier Sim card. Everytime i inserted an Indian carrier simcard it prompted with a message "network lockes simcard inserted" enter network lock code. I tried the region lock away app from Chainfire after rooting it to remove this region lock but got no result from all the risk i took and void my handset's warranty. Now i am thinking about flashing a custom rom on this hhandse. Although there are no official custom roms for this particular handset hence i am thinking of flashing wicked rom for Galaxy S4 gt i9505 because i rooted my gt i9515 using the root method for gt i9505.
So this phone is a good waste of money it someone purchass it from abroad.
I just want to know if it will solve my region Lock problem so that i may be able to use this piece of Samsung for good ?

A phone from dubai to india has no warranty in india anyway. Until and unless youve shed extra bucks to get international warranty.

Press Thanks if I helped

Thanks for showing concern on my problem But would flashing wicked rom for Galaxy S4 or any other custom rom do any good ? Would i be able to use Indian carrier sim card in this phone after flashing custom rom ?

Any help in this regard is highly appreciated.

Question of the Wifi chipset
Hi,

have anybody the 9515 BLACK EDITION (not the Deep Black) and can tell me what Wifi Chipset is build-in - when possible an EU Model (so if they are different Chips in there)?

You can read-out the Chipset with Wi-Mark (from the google playstore).. at the end of the Test it shows the Chipset!
