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.
