Summary: it is work but not like what you said unlocked.. when i received i try used my local sim card and it is can not open and i go to Samsung agency in Saudi Arabia and the contact with Samsung in USA for open locked and i pay more
Summary: The phone works fine but, a few freezing screen moments here and there. I went to the Caribbean with the phone was it was an easy transition from a us chip to there phone chip to work well in the Caribbean.
Summary: Bought this 8 months ago for $645. Loved the phone, while it lasted. Bought the sm-n900 international version to use here in the States. The LCD went out and USA Samsung won't touch it, and other countries service have been no help either, even though it has a 24 month smart warranty I am stuck with a brick. Just for this reason I recommend only buying a version that is for your area.
Best phone on the planet but lousy Simm locking policy by Samsung
2 September 2014
Summary: NOTE: I lowered my rating from 5 stars. Samsung gets 0 stars, the phone gets 5 stars. The Note 3 is an awesome phone, but customers should be upset over the SIMM lock on it, and NOT get this N9000 model. This international version is not for US users or even US users who travel. If you are not a traveler forget the comments about it being region/SIMM locked, but you should buy the phone for your carrier.
Summary: As a product for Samsung, it is simple awesome. I already used S4 but Note 3 is much better than S4 in terms of performance, battery backup etc. But I am not satisfied with the seller and the information which is mentioned in the amazon page. No where it is mentioned that this phone has no warranty. When I called to Samsung customer care to register my phone, they told that you can't get any warranty or service from Samsung in USA since it is international phone.
