What's the point of paying top dollar for an unlocked phone which is now locked in a different way? I'll be giving serious consideration to other brands because I travel to various regions on quite a regular basis. The Note three will now be useless under those circumstances. This reminds me of HTC's move to lock bootloaders. I hope other consumers will join me in switching to another manufacturer.
WTF this mean I can't use a local sim when I travel to different continents, either I need to pay expensive roaming cost or get a local phone which I have no use when I return to my continent.
I will think twice of getting a Samsung on future.
This is bullshit.Big colossal bullshit from Samsung.If I travel in Japan with an Europe bought Galaxy S4 and purchase a Japanese SIM to talk cheaper with my Japanese friends or business partners I can't do that?Are you retarded Samsung?
Kiss my a** sammy, you are on the road to your downfall. Firstly you don't give the snapdragon 800 in selected regions, dual sim phones in some regions, then if a person thinks of importing you don't support him. Not to forget the people who travel. Its time you mend your ways!! Reaching the top is easy but remaining there isn't.
