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.

Note – No root is required to use GSM SIM on your Verizon Galaxy Note 3.

Step 1.  Go to Settings->More Settings.

Step 4. Choose “Global”.  This will put your Verizon Note 3 into “auto” mode and will select the correct network based on the SIM card inserted.

Step 5. Power off your Verizon Note 3.  Pull you Verizon SIM card out and put your GSM SIM card in.

    Hello, I’m from Canada and my Note 3 version is N900w8. Wondering if these steps work for unlocking my phone from my carrier (Bell)? If not, is there another method for us to unlock or phones?

    Hi!

    I have a SM-N900V and am using it on Cricket (AT&T).

    My problem is that all incoming calls get a + (international prefix) prepended. This is VERY annoying as it prevents a match with the number in my contacts and worse, I cannot dial from the call log (as 212-555-1212 becomes +2125551212)

    I am fairly technical and have gone through all the menus and have searched for an answer to no avail.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Can anyone suggest how/why this would happen? Can anyone suggest how to fix this?

    Thanks!
    HC
