Default Any solution for Region Lock

Hi, I bought an International version of Note 3 SM-N900 from US. Its mentioned as it will work for US Based SIM. Without knowing that I bought to india and tried with Indian Sim, it asked to enter Network SIM Unlock PIN. I tried following methods, but went in vain :

1. Called Indian Samsung Customer Service. They told they cant help it.

2. Took to Authorised Samsung Service Centre, they told they cant help it.

3. Tried with some online Unlock codes, nothing worked.

I have 2 solutions in front of me : Please let me know, which will work.

1. If I put an US SIM, which is in international roaming and make a call and talk for 5 mins, will the region lock gets removed. ?

2. If I take back to US, put an US Sim and talk for 5 mins and bring back to India and use with Indian SIM, will it work ?

IS there any other method you guys can suggest me ? Please help me.

hi
samsung india won't region unlock note 3

most online code provider will come into play if your note3 is simlocked+region locked

your only solution is to unlock it with spt box which uses super imei

What online unlock codes you have used? May be you didn't use a suitable codes.

Can you show the screenshot of the phone, when it asks for the unlock code?
How does it look like?
