Is the Note 3 region locked in Asia also?
I'm doing business in Asia for a while and will eventually back to North America

I've never heard of a region locked phone before. If this... moreApologies - it's in several reviews.
Thanks for pointing it out.
This IS a joke, one played on us by Samsung.
No Galaxy Note 3 for me.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2013Didnt you read the news guys? Theres no unlocked Note 3 in US and Europe, they are region lock... moreIs this a joke?
I've never heard of a region locked phone before. If this phone is region locked then it is useless to me since I travel a lot and use local SIM cards in my phone.
I'm looking forward to the Note 3. I bought a galaxy S3. It's the best purchase ever IMHO. I got premium games for free like Asphalt 7 and I received a free premium movie download voucher on my birthday. The best smartphone, best customer service, and the best freebies. Go Samsung!
Phone is good, but no radio and USB also different, if they are have more better

If you look enough u can unlock it for free or you can pay for it.
I have the Galaxy S3 and I unlock it for free, I just google it... Have a nice day.
purchased and tested in 4 days (I) very good mobile but something large and side edges not like the s4 (ii) battery is very very very very bad bad bad bad (iii) no fm why? (iv) s pen has no use at all.....................................................................
How to find if its regional locked ? Is indian version is locked as well ?
Got my note 3 yesterday at launch day in the carphonewarehouse. It is simply the best thing out there right now. It is SOOOO much better than the S4 which is on eBay right now.
Simply lovely, best performer, had note1, have note2 and bought yesterday note3. It is fantastic
I had pre-ordered and looking forward to this great phone. Now I will not buy if regional locked as indicated. This is a world community not a regional one. What poor strategy.

You forgot to mention that the Note 3 also has the whole Smrt scroll/pause/stay features same as in galaxy s4...
this info doesn't mentioned in the specs here.
Didnt you read the news guys? Theres no unlocked Note 3 in US and Europe, they are region locked, if you buy it in Europe you can only use European sim cards. Samsungs is really Shamesung now, very arrogant thing to do, they didnt even make it know to the buyers.
We bought 4 Samsungs over the last 12 months, Note 2, Grand, Mega 5.8 and a tablet, but never again. More arrogant than Apple, no thanx, i put my business elsewhere. Trying to force me to use roaming sim when im in Asia or USA, how stupid is that?
