Note 3 SIM Network Unlock PIN in India Purchased from Saudi

Hello All,

I will appreciate if someone can help.

We have purchased Note 3 N9005 LTE from Saudi Arabia on 9th January and I have switched it on for the first time in India using Indian SIM card. Now it is asking for SIM NETWORK UNLOCK PIN.

I am aware that this is regional locked. But I am trying to find a solution. I already tried to purchase unlocking codes but seems there are no codes providers for phones purchased from Saudi Arabia region.

I am also aware of regional lock App, but it will void the warranty.

I wanted to ask will Samsung India or Samsung Saudi Arabia help us in this case? Did anyone experiencing the same problem found a solution without voiding the warranty?

I made a phone call to Samsung India and they said if I register it in India then there is a possibility that it may get functional, but I am not sure.

I request someone to help.

Thanks,

RegionLock Away only works with older firmwares afaik. You`re best bet is to activate it through Samsung. Register your device in India and if that doesn`t work contact Samsung again for more support.

How do I register my device in India?
Which Samsung should I contact? Samsung India or Samsung Arabia? And how do I get it activated?

The phone is currently in India.

Register the phone on the Indian Samsung site http://www.samsung.com/in/#undefined and choose Product Registration http://cybersvc2.samsungcsportal.com...n=N&ssoLang=en and contact Samsung India later for more activation support if needed.

Solution
Hello,

I managed to unlock my Note 3, however I sent it back to Saudi Arabia and they have unlocked it in their service center. I was charged 200 Riyals approximately 3200 rupees. However I heard software solutions are now supporting MJ7 as well? But I am not sure.
