It worked for me. I even put a friend's T-Mobile sim to confirm and it worked perfect. Just think, to unlock my iPhone 4, a kiosk at a mall wanted $125, since it has to be done with all this equipment and coordination from Apple (I said no thanks). I'm so happy to be moving away from Apple now.

Confirmed working on my device too. Also confirmed not working on Sprint and Verizon Note 2's (for good reason).

Default Anyone on Telus try this?

Has anyone on Telus attempted the unlock? I would like to try but meh I'm in contract for 3 years anyway.

But wait, I could buy a sim for an American provider when I travel there and use it right? Pay as you go?

I've done it on a T889V and it's worked like a charm.

You could get a microSIM from T-Mobile, AT&T, or any MVNO of those two and put an end to atrocious roaming charges. Throw in a calling card or a VoIP forwarding setup and your minutes to and from home will cost you pennies.
My phones: Galaxy Note II SGH-T889V (with LTE enabled / ext4 SD card support on TouchWiz ROMs), Motorola XT-1045 Moto G LTE (TWRP)
Previous phones: Nexus S GT-I9020A, Galaxy Gio GT-S5660M (Arpeggiomod ROM / Discussion, stock rooted ROM), Motorola XT-1032 Moto G.
Phones for which I play "tech support" for family and friends: Galaxy Nexus GT-I9250, Galaxy Q SGH-T589R, Galaxy 551 GT-I5510M, LG C-800G Eclypse, Motorola XT-1032 Moto G

Awesome I just did this on my Telus rooted Note2 as well as my wife's non rooted SIII on Bell, then swapped the sims and successfully made phone calls.

Thumbs up Great job

I confirm the correct operation of the method on Galaxy Note 2 (i317m) locked on rogers and Galaxy s3 as well locked on Bell. LTE and 4g Works fine also after the unlocking.
The method works well.
When you click on PERSO SHA256 OFF you can show a message like MENU NOT EXIST ; it does not bother, just click on it again and continue.
Once the phone is restarted the unlock will be done with success.

for galaxy note 2
1-put a different sim card on the phone
2-dial *#197328640#
3-Clic on [1]UMTS
4-Clic on [1]DEBUG SCREEN
5-Clic on [8]PHONE CONTROL
6-Clic on [6]NETWORK LOCK
7-Clic on [3]PERSO SHA256 OFF (wait 30 seconde)
8-Clic on [4]NW LOCK NV DATA INITIALLIZ
wait 1 minute and reboot the phone. After wait between 1 and 5 minute


Sorry for my english ...

Thanks a lot OP
