  1. the shown code in the video doesn`t work for me – it enters nowhere. when i type *#0011# i see service mode but below i see no service. this with inserted sim card on rooted phone…

  2. hey guys it does work for real, to get access to those menu
    your phone has to be running on 4.1.1 firmware
    do a downgrade if you are on a higher version firmware
    and follow the same steps and ya'll gonna be shocked
    to see it works,and these are the things they are not telling you
    after the unlock ya'll can go back to your original firmware of
    your choice as this is a permanent factory unlock.

    peace out!!!

  3. Hi, will this still work for newer versions of galaxy phones? like the s6 edge, the notes series, etc? if not, is there a new method for this?

    Much appreciated, brother!

  4. all I get is: "MENU NOT EXIST" My phone is good with grammar

  5. I tried your method with no results. The number you provided *#197328640# is for Verizon but what numbers would one use if switching from Rogers to Bell? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

  7. A word to the wise.

    if you have upgraded to 4.4 this will no longer work even if you flash a 4.1 stock rom. The baseband gets upgraded. Here is another IMPORTANT tip. Don't try to downgrade your modem/baseband because anything for 4.4 will not work and will clear your IMEI. I learned this the hard way. If you managed to make this mistake. just use odin and flash THE EXACT version of stock 4.4 you had.

    This is only for those who have never upgraded 4.1 and will only work on 4.1. If you are on a custom rom and cannot use a purchased unlock code, you can go back to a flashable stock rom and do it that way then restore your nandroid of your custom rom.

  8. Hey Gersi, im a girl from Canada who really needed a phone and decided to give it a go and lo and behold lol if i can do it any body can wooohooo lol and dont worry this link i mentioned was ify to me to but i decided to go for it and guess where i am sending you this message from! yes the very same phone 🙂

  10. I have a T-Mobile Galaxy S-3 phone and the 4 option after network lock option wont show how can I do this I don't have a tmobile sim

  11. Does the phone needs to have a sim card to unlock it? My phone is a T-Mobile Galaxy S3 and because I have a new device I don't have the tmobile sim card. I do have a sim card from the company I will like the phone to be working with. Any advice?

  12. To get to the menu, I'd have to use the instruction at the bottom

    Menu > Back
    Menu > keyInput "Q"
    Menu > keyInput "0000"
    Wait for few seconds
