Is this a permanent unlock? Or if I flash my phone with a custom ROM or completely reset my phone the phone will be locked again?

I need to unlock my Samsung Galaxy S3 on Sprint so I can use it on AT&T. Help, please. Thanks.
Even if you unlock it, it will NOT work on AT&T because AT&T is GSM while Sprint is CDMA.
Basically, if the phone works on Sprint, it won't work on AT&T and vice versa.


GSM (AT&T, T-Mobile)

CDMA (Verizon, Sprint) it will work with Verizon if you unlock though.

I believe these articles leave out important info. The law states that 3rd parties cannot unlock phones for you except for the carriers. The end consumer (you) can unlock the phone yourself such as using this method described here, but you cannot use those other services online websites or buy codes from ebay.

But I'm pretty sure many 3rd party websites will move their business overseas to bypass this law.

i dont understand this statement:

Quote :
If you do buy a new phone and want to unlock it before the deadline, you must first ask your carrier if the company will unlock your phone for you. The DMCA only permits you to unlock your phone yourself once you've asked your carrier first.
so if you want to unlock the phone yourself, you just have to ask your carrier now? just ask and then it's legal to unlock by yourself after the deadline or before the deadline? this sounds like you can't use any unlocked phone (ever) if you dont ask them before this deadline.

Saw this very late - and followed EXACT (timed 30secs and 1min by a watch) steps as OP listed and 100% success. Verified with T-Mobile (foreign SIM). I have a AT&T - SG3. I did this with my AT&T SIM (home SIM) in the phone, worked like a charm.

Thanks & Repped!

Few ques which i see a lot of people have:-
Question1 - After selecting Options [3]Perso SHA256 OFF you get two more options
SHA256_ENABLE_FLAG [0]
SHA256_OFF :> Not Change
What to do?
Answer: Do nothing, I simply waited 30 secs as told by OP. Then hit Menu-> Back and went back to [6] Network Lock.

Question2 - After completing all steps tried *#7465625# and got "Connection problem or invalid MMI code" What does this mean.
Answer: I got it to. No idea what it means, but inserted a T-Mobile SIM and made a call - went through.

Question3 - How to verify its unlocked?
Answer: Your best shot is to get a foreign SIM somehow, thats the only thing which can certify you made it.

The Kev Master tried doing this with his AT&T sim and it looked ok.

Today, he got the free T-Mobile SIM and put it in and found that it wasn't unlocked so he tried doing this again and easily unlocked it.
