Unlock Samsung Galaxy SIII and Galaxy Note 2

Everybody knows that carrier unlocked phones are much cheaper then the unlocked ones but they can only work with the operator's SIM it is locked to. But nowadays, unlocking a phone is becoming very popular. If you wanna how to unlock an iPhone, click here.

But recently a very simple hack was discovered to bypass carrier restrictions on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Samsung Galaxy S3. One of the great things about this is that you don't have to pay anyone for the service or wait for a code from your carrier. All you gotta do is put a code in your devices menu and work your way through it to get the phone unlocked.

Note: After personal testing, i found out that this also works for Samsung Galaxy Note as long as it on Android 4.0.4 or above.

Now, lets see how to do this :)

Step 1: Insert the SIM you wanna use on the unlocked phone.

Step 2: In the keypad, enter the code *#197328640# and press send.

Step 3: Follow this clicking route: Main Menu > UMTS > Debug Screen > Phone Control > Network Lock > Options > Perso SHA256 Off . After doing this, wait for about 30 seconds.

Step 4: Now go back to the Network Lock menu and choose NW Lock NV Data INITIALLIZ .

If you followed the aforementioned steps carefully and correctly, your phone should be unlocked. But sometimes nothing changes. You need not worry. Just switch off your phone and start it again.
Voila, its unlocked.
