Re: How to Unlock Your Samsung Galaxy S3 & Note 2 (No Rooting)
Already been talked about awhile ago here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2024361

And here again: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2033225

You should really search before making a thread like this. And I know you'll say I did search... But apparently not hard enough

sent from the scary door.....

Sorry I didn't search, I should search in the future before posting something. But I also wanted to show a video tutorial of the unlocking. Thanks.

Hi,
Is there a way to check if this works without another sim card??
Any codes to see if it's unlocked???

I did this y'day. Tested today with my colleagues T-Mobile sim. It connected to T-Mobile network without any hassle. It was missing proper APN so it connected to edge only.

Re: How to Unlock Your Samsung Galaxy S3 & Note 2 (No Rooting)
Tried the same on my wife's rooted stock (4.0.4), and it didn't work.

So like the original post (not OP) states, you have to be on 4.1.1.

Not with Canadian carriers, hence why these posts are very valuable
