Samsung Galaxy Note 3 region lock workaround tries to set phones free

The situation, reasons, and explanations behind Samsung’s region-locking of Note 3 devices is still not clear. Fact is that the new phablets come with a region lock; hence, you can’t really use a European model in the US, or vice versa (or another region). However, Samsung claims that once activated with a SIM from the proper region, this lock should go away. Some angry Note 3 owners could testify to the opposite, according to reports.

Trying to set your Note 3 free, this application, while requiring root, will clear a certain blacklist on the phone. As a direct effect, it should allow you, for the moment, to use your Note 3 (unlocked) with any SIM, regardless of region. Of course, Samsung can always update and restore the list via updates.
