    Samsung Galaxy Note 3

    I purchased this phone from Amazon in the UK and activated it with a T-Mobile number . Since that time I have used the phone successfully with local SIM in Tunisia, Germany (T-Mobile), USA (T-Mobile) and South Africa (Vodacom). Yesterday I inserted my Etisalat SIM hrere in Dubai and I get a Network Lock SIM Error yet the phone is unlocked.

    Etisalat replaced the SIM and I still get the same error. Today I have tried a new Du SIM and still get the network lock error. These phones are supposed to work worldwide after intial activation in a specific error.

    Does anybody know a solution?

    There IS a regional unlock for the Note 3 (since unlocking the SIM-lock and regional unlocking are two different things), the link to the app is in the second post at xda-developers - View Single Post - [APP][2013.11.04] RegionLock Away v1.3 [ROOT] (If you decide to download it for free and it works for you, give the guy a few bucks. He's been working hard for all us Note 3 owners for a long time.)
