    Unlock VZW Samsung Galaxy Note II

    Has anyone know how to unlock VZW Galaxy Note II?
    I'm planning to visit oversea (Hong Kong) for few weeks and I wanted to know if I use my Galaxy Note II while I'm there.
    I need to be able to use voice & data (4G).

    Not sure, if I can be able to use 4G data over in Hong Kong.

    Thanks ^^

    The Verizon Galaxy Note II comes SIM unlocked from the factory, therefore you can pop in foreign SIM cards and use voice/data. Verizon has however blocked the ability to add APNs to the phone so you cannot use data with a foreign SIM. People believe they do this to force people to overpay them for foreign data. If you root the Note II there is a way to add APNs so you can get foreign data working.

    It is technically sim unlocked but the stock rom doesn't allow APN changes so I don't know how that will affect it. With a custom rom I can confirm it works on Tmobile USA.

    I just spoke with a Verizon global service representative and she assured me that the last software version will allow data usage with a foreign Sim card. Have you heard the same from them? I am leaving shortly for Italy and I need to use my phone for data there as well.

    Your best bet as people said is to just install a custom rom, I wouldn't wait for Verizon to realease an update. The phone is unlocked but the software itself disables it for whatever reason. I also can confirm it works with ATT and TMobile locally so there is no reason it wouldn't work overseas with any rom besides the stock one.

    In Germany, yes, 2100 should work fine. T-Mobile USA, not really since the VZW Note doesn't have AWS HSPA+.
    I usually support government regulation, but It is unfortunate that the government over-regulated and killed the AT&T/ T-Mobile Merger
    The best explanation of the pricing nutiness in the industry.
    Why Sprint and T-Mo will always suck.
    The only way to end the pricing insanity is to eliminate contracts and subsidies.
    I want Wifi calling on AT&T.
    If you text while driving, you're an idiot. End of story.
