That is not good. Why to get region lock while paying the full hefty price of unlocked phone. Seems like Samsung is not he right choice now
I was hoping to import the galaxy golden to use here in Canada. I do not know why they do not sell dual sim phone in Canada, one for work and personal use. So I'll have to find another phone from another company. I do not see the advantage for samsung, a sale is a sale. Does it really matter how it is made or is it because the price differs in each region and they do not want us to pay less from another region. This would cut into there profit. Sneaky.
if it was it then thats it i m not having samsung phone any more i will just go with nokia 3310
So much trouble just to be able to overcharge you in your region.
Die and make way for a new ruler Samsung.
why do you have to jump through hoops just to use your unlocked phone with any sim :/
I'm sure the grey markets sellers will soon find a way to do five minutes of call to a free-call number before export
Samsung will die a slow death from this, it doesn't matter if it affects customers or not, once I loose trust in a product, I stay away from it and I'm sure its the same with most people.
This is just stupid, they do as if they don't have competitors, what should companies that are making loss do, if samsung can be doing this.
Sad that these companies think they are the smartphone police.
