    I purchased an AT&T Note 3 off contract, then purchased an unlock code, so I can use it with T-Mobile. I did not realize the phone had not yet updated to KitKat prior to unlocking it. So my question is, can I update it to KitKat without it becoming carrier locked again? If so, does anyone know the best way to do this?

    I searched but did not find this exact issue, sorry if it's asked and answered previously, but I did at least try to find it.

    If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    If you are using T-Mobile as your service provider, it will not get the KK update cause the phone has to log on to AT&T server. You might take it to Best Buy and have Samsung Experience update it for you. But it may require an active AT&T sim
