Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the first smartphone of the company, which received a regional defense. In the web already have a lot of feedback about what machines purchased in Europe and activated a local SIM-card, flatly refuse to work in Thailand, Egypt and other countries. In the UK, a similar misunderstanding of the situation for some time felt supply disruptions fableta Koreans. But that’s not all.
It seems that Samsung plans to introduce regional restrictions on all devices (especially the flagships) issued after July 2013, which is the corresponding to the labels. Moreover, in the “at risk” may turn out to be the flagships of 2012 – Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 – by upgrading to Android 4.4 KitKat.
Anyway, before the release of the new version of Android for the Galaxy line to lot time and during this time Samsung will be able to bring clarity to existing issues of regional security. The workaround is, by the way, you can. With the help of codes that are sold on eBay (but no guarantees).
