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.


Bonsai ROM for Sprint Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900P!

For this week’s Sprint Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900P ROM of the Week, check out Bonsai ROM.

Based on latest MJ4 Sprint firmware, Bonsai ROM seems to be aimed at those who want stock ROM but with much added performance/battery life and features.

Out of the box, Bonsai ROM supports 3G/4G LTE wifi tethering so you don’t have to mess with flashing any files, just turn it on and forget it.  Other nifty features include the inclusion of Note 3 basic apps like Pen Window Manager and Multi-Window Manager so you can open any apps for multi-tasking on the go.


Wicked ROM for Galaxy Note 3! [SM-N900T/SM-N900W8]

For this week’s T-Mobile and Canadian Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900T/SM-N900W8 ROM of the week, do check out Wicked ROM.

Based on latest T-Mobile official firmware, Wicked ROM supports Wifi Calling (of course) and native wifi tethering out of the box. To get wifi tether working fully, you will need to add an extra APN in APN Settings, just make additional APN with “” and everything else empty. If you have trouble, see our video above as it shows you.


VN ROM for Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900!

For this week’s Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900 ROM of the week, check out VN ROM.

Based on latest Android 4.3 N900XXUCMJ6 Samsung firmware, VN ROM brings you lots of goodies while weeding out annoying features like Knox.

For starters, VN ROM comes with a choice of stock or transparent theme. I highly recommend the transparent theme as it’s a major part of the ROM and gives you some nice visual upgrades to your Note 3.


Jelly Beans ROM for Verizon Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900V!

For this week’s Verizon Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900V ROM of the week and also our first Verizon Note 3 ROM featured on our site, check out Jelly Beans ROM!

Jelly Beans ROM is built by XDA user BeansTown106, who has been making some excellent custom ROMs for many other Samsung smartphone like the Note 2, S4, S3, and much more.


BobCat ROM for Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005!

For this week’s Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005 ROM of the week, check out BobCat ROM!  (Sorry, I found out the hard way wifi/cellular gets buggy if you install SM-N9005 ROMs on T-Mobile or Canadian Note 3s, but there should be a fix later down the road.)

One of the best custom ROMs for the Galaxy S4, BobCat ROM is also now available for Note 3 SM-N9005 users.


How to Unlock SIM/Disable Region Lock on Galaxy Note 3!

For those of you who want to use your locked Galaxy Note 3 on another carrier or want to disable region lock because you bought your Note 3 from overseas, here’s how to unlock SIM and also disable region lock on your Galaxy Note 3.

Step 1. Insert a SIM card that’s not supported by your Note 3.  E.g. I’ve inserted my T-Mobile SIM card onto my AT&T Note 3, now I get a SIM locked window when I start my Note 3.
