Does Flashing SGH-I747 4.3 to a custom ROM will remove the carrier lock of the phone?

Couple of things to keep in mind:

1) if you want to unlock the phone, get a code and unlock the phone while running a stock ROM. You will not be able to enter the code using a custom ROM; and

2) do not attempt to downgrade the bootloader. Any attempts to downgrade could, and probably will, brick your phone.

I doubt it. If it did, there would be a big thread about it in the i747/i747m forum. Also, under FAQ, it states the following: support international Galaxy S3 i9300 (Us qualcomm based GS3 are not supported at this time)

The last post in that thread was 2013-06-14.

That unlock app will not work as it does not support U.S S3 variants

There's a working downgrade to 4.1.1 check it out and while on it, try the free unlock then upgrade again

Edit: my bad.. You can't do the free unlock even of you downgrade because the bootloader is still 4.3... Only way to do it once you're on 4.3 bootloader is to purchase an unlock code

Good luck
