All type of Samsung Mobiles that you have purchased in Saudi Arabia has a region sim lock. You should use it to call locally using Saudi sim cards for at least 10 minutes to make it open line/unlock the mobile in order to use it in your own country. After calling for at least 10 minutes you can try to insert your roaming sim cards if any to test if the signal will appear.

I think it's time to say Good by Samsung and go for other brands. I am a big fan of Samsung. But It's frustrating to see new launch of Samsung on the websites but can't buy because of it's region lock facility. The traveller like me has to be very careful now onward to buy Samsung mobile even in India as well which was never expected.

MOST disappointing of all is that I bought a Samsung Galaxy A3oof DUOS thinking that I could put my saudi sim on slot 1 & my india roaming sim on slot 2 - and the bent policy of sim-locking by Samsung rejects my roaming sim on slot 2.
