Put a sim from another carrier. If the phone does not ask for a code and you can use that sim to make calls then it worked.

just unlocked my at&t phone for free! Thanks OP!! Tested by inserting my old vzw lte sim. Before unlocking I got a pop up asking for the unlock code after putting in the vzw sim. After going though the steps it no longer asks me for the unlock code! Success!!

Default Hmm, this might open some very interesting options ...

Hmm, this might open some very interesting options - one of them being that the Samsung private key was somehow compiled into the modem tool inside the ROM; I wonder if that might be extracted from there and if that is Samsung-wide or just N710x-wide; what I do not doubt so much is that if that works so well then the next official ROM will remove it - but if I am right about the key it will remain valid so tools based on that could be made

I can imagine that the official response from samsung on this would be "oops"! Fantastic

Thank OP for the excellent information, you just saved me $25 bucks.

I am getting greedy, can someone come up with the steps to root the phone?

Thumbs up Thanks.

Op you are legendary, can I ask how you discovered this? I'm interested in finding the other hidden codes for the Samsung LTE phones.

Work for me on n7105 from Orange, however the menus did not behave in an intuitive way. It might be worth explaining what happens/what to expect with your details.

Has anyone tried putting the lock back on? Is it possible?

Also do you have any credits to share, I like to know all the people who helped - after all; networking is the key to success.

Again, legendary. Thank you.
If you haven't read prepare to be ignored, or worse.

No problem. I just found out about the secret code somewhere on xda, but it was for another topic I couldn't remember. But I never read about it being able to unlock the phone. I just carefully played with the menu and accidentally found about it.

I have not tried putting the lock back on.... who knows we cannot unlock it again... if you want to try it, feel free and please let us know, but for me, I will not

edit:
what do you mean by it did not behave in an intuitive way?

Did a search and there's a plethora of codes here
