How to Use GSM SIM on Verizon Galaxy Note 3! [World Phone]

For those of you traveling abroad outside the U.S. with your Verizon Galaxy Note 3, did you know that your Verizon Galaxy Note 3 is a “world phone”?

The Verizon Galaxy Note 3 comes “unlocked”, meaning you can use any GSM SIM card and use it as a world phone.  And yes, this method will allow you to use your Verizon Note 3 on networks like AT&T or T-Mobile.  However, you will not be able to get 4G LTE on AT&T or T-Mobile, you may be able to get 4G LTE in other countries though (if 4G LTE is compatible with Verizon’s 4G LTE frequencies).  HSPA+ works just fine also, I was able to get nice 6-7Mbps download speeds on AT&T.

How to Add Popup Browser to Galaxy Note 3!

Many of you who have bought your brand, new Galaxy Note 3 have used Galaxy Note 1 or Note 2 before and if you have been missing pop-up browser, here’s how to get it back.

Of course, you can use new Pen Window feature on the Note 3 to get the same effect but it can be cumbersome as you need to take your S-Pen out, select Pen Window, draw a window, select the app, then browse to what you need it to.  With Pop-up browser, you will be able to open up your favorite browser links more easily in one tap like you did with the Note 2.
