    I purchased a Note 8 device on Ebay , and its locked to T-Mobile , now, I don't live in the U.S. , so I don't ahve access to the network and I cannot utilize the unlock app.

    Do you think - if I root the device and attempt to permanently delete the Unlock App - will I be able to unlock it like a normal person by inserting a sim and submitting an unlock code? :|

    What other options would you suggest that doesn't involve talking to T-mobile, since they've made it clear they're not in to help me.
