    Here this is the easiest way it is a paid app, you do need Root, but this works well with your Note 3 variant, RegionLock Away by Chainfire.

    Or, you can contact your service provider and request their help in unlocking it.

    KaChow - i have that app. newer version, 1.3V, but it still doesn't work at all. android version is 4.4.2 so is it possible to root it?
    UltraDroid - i will contact provider, but they can't help me, because the phone is locked, not the sim. is there any youtube video or something like that, where is shown detailed how to root, or unlock the phone? please help me.

    See the problem is your talking about two different things here. Rooting and Unlocking the bootloader is a completely separate task from unlocking the sim/radio on your device. The way that you are presenting your issue here it sounds like you are trying to unlock your sim/radio so both myself and UltraDroid are trying to provide you with support to handle addressing the issue with your sim card/radio not working properly. Now, I realize that you are new to Android as you mentioned that, but you need to be more clear as to what you are trying to do. If you are talking about gaining Root and Unlocking the Bootloader then that is something we can help you with, but in order to do so, you need to let us know what your model is> go to Settings-> About phone-> Model number (we need this) also we need the Android version, also if you can provide me with the Baseband version that would be helpful as well.

    Here I would like for you to start here. Read this. (I am Not Responsible for what you do with your phone, I am simply providing you with direction that you are looking for to help you.) Let me know when this has been successfully completed.

    Please, also note This ONLY WORKS with Device information that is Provided in Post #7. If this is attempted on any other device that does not match the Device information in Post #7 you have a strong possibility of Bricking your phone.

    you have a strong possibility of Bricking your phone, --- you have written this, what does it means? the phone will be unusable? or i will need to pay some money to get the code? i don't understand that. if i will not root the phone, and i will buy the code, using imei, there are some sites, where i can buy code, it will not work any way?

    also, i talked with the samsung service center, and they told me that this phone is international, from england. also they told me that it is blocked by the carrier. so if i will decide to buy the code, i have to know, which carrier has sold this mobile.

    Be careful with those sim unlock codes. Careful, from the standpoint of you get like 5 tries to enter the code. After the fifth try, it won't let you enter anymore codes. If you purchase one, and they usually DO work, sit down, carefully follow the instructions and you should be all right. Just pay attention and concentrate on entering the code exactly as it's given. :)

    KaChow - i have regionlock away V1.3, when i make it, it still doesn't work. also, i am not quite sure if i root it exactly correctly. it went to the end, but maybe it doesn't went as it should be. if that 1.3 V is older, can you sent me the newer version?
    UltraDroid - if i will get the code, i will put it exactly as it will be. but before, i wont to do it without paying any additional charges, the phone already costs me 504$ so, i will wait, may be i will unlock it without paying money.
    i am thankful both for your help.

    also i want to know, is there any programme, which can look through the phone and search for the code, which is the unlock code? phone must match with each other the code which we type and the code which is written in the programme, and if they match, it will unlock. i have heard about the assembler, this is the programme like that.

    2 Things:
    1) Which Country are you trying to Unlock in?
    2) Try this app Root Checker, install and open it, if it detects that your device is Rooted everything will be Green, if it is not then it will be Red, if Green then you have Root.

    Looks like Samsung not too long ago blacklisted Georgia along with a few other countries. There is someone that seems to have a stronger understanding on your specific situation, the user is through XDA going under the name midnite_blue contact this person start from the beginning and see what he can do. Here's one of his post. GL!

    Note: I am hoping that this XDA member can first make sure that the device is correct and second help in getting the device to work properly.
