Can the MCC list be totally wiped from the CSC?
Sorry if my use of the terms is not precise.
I have a Note 1 on Telus in Canada, but have never unlocked it or rooted it.
I do travel frequently to Europe and we carry 2 unlocked Blackberry Bolds with GoSim SIMs in them (UK #s).
Is this scenario possible:
1) I buy a Note 3 outright from my carrier, Telus, here in Toronto.
2) I activate it on Telus, then pay to have the carrier lock released, as per any terms Telus has for unlocking. ( I'm on contract with Telus, so in Canada I continue to use their network).
3) I assume that the region lock is still in place at this point.
4) I remove the MCC list from the CSC (?). Is this possible by "rooting" the phone, or by any other method? ( considering I don't care about warranty) Does rooting the phone remove any of the S Pen functionality, etc. ?
I've been waiting for the Note 3 for some time, but now am holding off. Since this region lock surfaced, I've been seriously looking at the Z1 Ultra, but so far it doesn't quite cut it for me. If I bought a Note 3, I would want to know that down the road, if I wanted to unlock it for travel globally, that I could.
