Sim unlock usually don't matter which phone its in.
The SIM only is locked.
Try using the wrong password untill it requests for PUK code, then get your PUK code handy.
Usually sim providers can give you your PUK code.
UNLESS YOU STOLE IT
Then you're a nigga**** !
XD

Let me know if it helps.

I want to use my phone with a vodafone SIM, but the phone is locked to T-Mobile.
Of course i know the PUK code I did not stole the phone or the SIM card
With this method I can use the phone with my Vodafone SIM?
The phone is rooted by the way.

When I enter my PIN code for the SIM, the phone asks for the network unlock code. That is my problem. And I can't use it with my Vodafone SIM card

Any solution for this?

No worries mate.
So first to download is the original firmware.
Go here -> http://www.samsungis.com/Firmwares/GT-S7275R.html
Choose based on country+mobile.
Hover the mouse over the words and it will show the country name if you're unsure.
So for example im in Malaysia and the latest firmware is XME, S7275RXXUANA3.

Once downloaded, the file is a single file. Extact it and you'll get an md5 file.
Use whatever odin version u have. I used odin 3.07
And select 'PDA' only. Then go to the downloaded file.
Proceed with flashing. Click start and wait for the phone to be installed.
Once install, phone should be brand new.
If phone stuck at boot screen, enter recovery and wipe cache and partition.

Let me know how it goes. !

I cannot confirm if the phone will be unlocked. But its worth a try.
But many websites charge you to get it unlocked and im not sure if there's a cheaper method.

But i can confirm that there is no CWM recovery for our phone yet.
Its the normal samsung official recovery i was speaking of.
Turn off phone, press 3 buttons at once (On/off button + home button + volume up button) .

Okay, i will give it a try, but i think it won't work
I'm looking for a cheap method, i like to tinker with my phone
Is there an official Ace 3 forum?

There are plenty of forums but there's no specific Ace 3 forum yet :/
Oh and i think you should really give it a try.
So i can confirm if it really works
