hi

i wrote to sammy Germany and they wrote back that my phone (which i bought used from ebay) is locked by Vodafone UK
and i should contact them..

"Smartphones that you purchase a wireless service provider, are often provided with a network lock. This is not about the regional EU-SIM card lock.
An activation code for the network lock, you can only ask directly to the intended wireless service provider."


will try another service but maybe i will have to pay online for some unlocking service
any recommendations of any internet based unlocking sites for euro phones. ?

It would have been better if you would have bought an unlocked mobile...But anyways, since it's carrier locked, you can try sending an email to Vodafone UK customer care but I don't think, they will help you since this is an used phone...

In that case, you could try posting a new thread in the proper section of this forum & helpful forum members will be able to guide you surely...I don't have personal experience with 3rd party unlocking services, so I would suggest you to ask this community instead...

Best of luck...

Hi there,
If you're not such a technical person, you can try an unlock code provider. I've used a few services for my phones and some of my friends' and everything went ok.

Thank you! But the problem is that my dad bought the phone in Saudi Arabia. When I contacted their contact support, they asked for the sales invoice which I do not have because my dad is in SA while I'm in the Philippines. (He also thinks that he lost the receipt.)

Could I possibly ask for another region's code? The phone is made in UK but is region locked in SA. Could I use the unlock number from the UK samsung support? Thank you very much.

If the phone is region-locked in SA, then only Samsung Saudi Arabia can help you but you must give them the copy of the invoice...Ask your dad to scan & send to you the invoice...If he has lost the invoice, then I'm afraid, Samsung will not be able to help you in this & you will need to buy an unlock code from a 3rd party unlock code provider...
