    Any developer out there or someone able to get msl with out contacting there carrier as some of us are unable to. It so seems that all apps available through the app store do not work as well as past efforts in retrieving the MSL that were once successful no longer work. I hope this thread could open a discussion to resolute this.:thinking:

    Welcome to AF and the Note 3 Forum, cyrus441! :)

    Wish I could help you out there. Calling the carrier was going to be my suggestion. :(

    Perhaps there is another way, but I don't know it. I think the only app I used to get it required root...

    I didn't realize the MSL apps wouldn't work on these phones but you're right. I just tried a few and none worked. There may not be another way to get it besides calling the carrier.

    Master Subsidy Lock in mobile phones. The MSL is usually a 6-digit code programmed by the service provider into a device to prevent its reprogramming for other providers.

    Right. Doesn't affect me apart from region lock as I didn't buy my phone off a service provider in the first place.

    Anyone know a meid/writable that effectively works with this phone the Note 3 or able to retrieve the msl or spc with success with contacting the network. Qxdm is no longer working as writing the meid/esn is not sticking it reverts back to its old esn/meid
