Hi, I am having this problem, I purchased a Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini in Switzerland and haven't noticed about this lock on the EU. I haven't used the phone until I arrived for holidays in Argentina. Now I need to know if I can place my Swisscom Swiss SIM card and unlock the device by making a 5 minutes call while on Roaming in Argentina. Should this work? Thanks for your comments!
Syed Zain, 29 Dec 2014I bought a Galaxy S4 online from Saudi arabia in riyath and it's asking sim unlock pin code...... moreDear Zain
I also brought Galaxy S4 from jarir store recently and they also suggested to use it with saudi sim and make 2 calls one to any saudi number and other to the region number where we want to use the mobile for more than 5 mins.then the lock will be automatically deactivated.
I bought a Galaxy S4 online from Saudi arabia in riyath and it's asking sim unlock pin code... there's a card in the box which mentions about the region lock and also it says that to activate the phone we need to use the regional sim card and make a cumulative call over 5 min from that card so does this work??? or the problem continues?
I have a note 3 which I unlocked via the service Centre... i was wondering if the lock will be turned on again if I flash a custom rom ?

Do you know if using an European SIM on roaming to make a 5 min phone call would solve the problem?
My girlfriend inserted a UK SIM while in the UK, but didn't make the 5 min call. Then she travelled abroad and now the phone is locked.
My partner is in Thailand and not able to use her new Samsung S4 Mini, she did use it in the UK with a UK sim card for more than 5 minutes.
Is there a UK number I can phone, Samsung Support UK seem to know nothing and the number on here is invalid when called from the UK.

Where are the Samsung care centers in the United States? I was told I could go there to remove the region lock feature from my S4 galaxy. I have called Samsung's 800 number for customer care here in the United States they refer me to the nearest Samsung experience sensor which is located in a best buy store in Victorville , CA USA. I talk to them and they know nothing about region lock. Of al the people I have dealt with, Samsung has to be the worst. Can any one help me?
