    I updated to kitkat 4.4.4 last night this morning I noticed that my note 3 was not finding the sim card. I have tried repairing many times but with no luck. Its a verizon Note 3 but currently using it in Mexico. Is it possible to downgrade to 4.4.2? or root it to sim unlock? or can I buy a code? HELP. I am new to the android world (previous iPhone user). I cant afford to be without a phone. Is there any solution to get the phone to recognize and red my mexican sim card or have I bricked my note 3?

    I see that you are on Verizon.
    You have to go here and change your settings to LTE and CDMA



    If it is set to that then try Global. My GNOTE 4 was doing something almost the same after the last Verizon update. Mine kept losing the Sim card. I had to change mine from Global to LTE and CDMA. No problem since. I hope this helps you out.

    The settings menu is slightly different because the poster above is on the Note 4 running the newest version of TouchWiz, but I don't think network mode would make a difference? Just the same, go to settings, mobile networks, and try 'global' vs LTE/CDMA. I have no idea how international roaming works.. And no, you can't go back to 4.4.2 Root is not avaliable for 4.4.4 yet. At this point, I'd call Verizon.

    Since he is currently in Mexico, global is the right setting. Have you done a factory data reset?

    I'm guessing you have a non Verizon SIM card in the phone allowing you to do prepaid on the other SIM. If that is the case you need to call Verizon and request a SIM unlock code.
