Just dial the following keys *#197328640#

Main Menu > [1] UMTS > [1] Debug Screen > [8] Phone Control > [6] Network Lock > Options [3]Perso SHA256 OFF > (after choosing this option, wait about 30 seconds, then go back one step by pressing the Menu button then select Back, now you are in [6] Network Lock then choose [4] NW Lock NV Data INITIALLIZ ..... wait for a minute then reboot your phone... enjoy!!!

I have an unlocked T Mobile Galaxy S 3 which suddenly stopped working. It displays "searching" on its screen non stop, when I try to make a call it says "not registered on network" Tryed to fix this problem by the method above, did't work. Please HELP me.
Honestly, if you have an unlocked phone, why are you trying to re-unlock it? If you don't have an unlocked phone, you'll get the exact error message that you described.

Hey guys - I tried these steps as listed on an ATT Note 2. I noticed the SHA256 has changed to 0 however when I used the foreign SIM (verizon SIM) the phone boots and detects the signal (but does not say Verizon network or anything). When I attempt to make a call it says "Emergency Calls" only.

Any comments on this ? I did try to re-do the unlocking steps by putting in the foreign SIM but nothing changed.

That's because the ATT variant of Galaxy Note 2 is not an international phone; it will only accept GSM sim cards and not recognize CDMA.

Interesting...on my first Note 2 that was shipped with 4.1.1 and I upgraded to 4.1.2, I was able to run through the procedure in the OP.
On the second phone that shipped with 4.1.2 already, I don't have the same option after PERSO_SHA256_OFF. There is no NV Lock Init... after I hit back.

Does this unlock procedure still work for 4.1.2? After I hit back, there is no NV Lock Init either... anybody with ideas?

When I type in the *#numbers# i get a message that says no network available. I bought the phone from ATT and no longer have service with them. Do I have to have service in order for this unlock method to work?
