Unlock The Samsung Galaxy Note 3, 2, S3 and the S4 Thanks To Leaked Engineer Code

By  | 

If you are the owner of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the Note 2 or perhaps the S4 or S3 and your handset is locked you might want to unlock the device once the contract is over. By unlocking it you will then be able to take the device to whatever carrier is offering the best deal. Thankfully this is now possible and it can be done easily and fast at home.

Anyone can unlock their Samsung Galaxy Note 3 or 2 and the S4 and S3 with the code that engineers are said to use to unlock handsets belonging to Samsung. If you want to unlock your device you can follow the steps below.

One: Insert a new SIM card into your Galaxy Note 2 or Galaxy S4.
Two: Turn off your device then turn it back on again.
Three: Head to the dialpad and enter in *#197328640#.
Four: Choose [1] UMTS > [1] Debug Screen > [8] Phone Control > [6] Network Lock > Options [3] Perso SHA256 OFF.
Five: Wait for 30 seconds or so before heading back into the main menu by choosing “back”.
Six: In your main menu, you’ll see “Network Lock”, so now choose [4] NW Lock NV Data INITIALLIZ.

Owners of other Samsung handsets, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, 2, the S4 and the S3 have said that the unlock code works with their handsets too so you might want to try it out.
