I brought my new phone Samsung C9 Pro from malaysia since l was in Malaysia for few weeks l had to use the new phone with the local sim temporary. When l return to Chennai and start using it with Airtel sim there was no problem. When l brought my 2nd phone Samsung J7Pro again in Malaysia l took the new phone to Chennai without using. When l inserted Airtel sim the phone did not work. Since l had to be back to Malaysia again l took the phone along and now l am using it with my local Maxi sim it is working. Hope when l get back to Chennai it will work well with India sim

I bought Galaxy A5 2017 in Poland and found that it locked when inserting any Russian SIM cards. I wrote request to Samsung Support via Samsung Members app and after 3 days I got unlocking codes. My problem resolved. The only point I am a bit disappointed coz this model doesn't support two SIM cards and Samsung Pay.

I buyed samsung c7 pro in india at now i am living in ukraine but local sim card was not responding in my phone whats the reason plz i need information about it
Managed to remove the region lock on my new S8!! My bf bought the phone brand new from Samsung in the UK, and brought it over to Oz where we are living for a year. Didn't know about the regional lock so used my Oz SIM to start it up which of course didn't work. Samsung UK told me I could only remove the lock by making a 5 minute phone call from a UK SIM within the UK. I have my UK SIM card with me whilst travelling so thought I would try and make a phone call over Roaming, ie. make the phone call using my UK SIM but whilst still in Oz. It worked!!! I phoned my bf on his Oz mobile number for 5 mins and now my Oz SIM works as well.
Samsung info is confusing and hugely unhelpful re: the regional locks. The above paragraph is a much shorter version of what has been a long and frustrating issue to try and solve. Samsung told me I would have to post my phone back to the UK to get it sorted which would have cost me about $150AUD, so not ideal. I won't be getting another Samsung after this one, the regional lock thing is a nightmare. Never before appreciated that although Samsung is a global company, each country's Samsung effectively operates individually and therefore they will not help you out unless you are in the country in which the phone was purchased. Madness.
