Are you serious about this?
Without any charge at all? That is pretty cool if that is true!


But, how can you check to see if it is unlocked after....just put in a different SIM card?

Anyone know the number to dial to check from the phone settings?

Do you have an existing phone line? Which carrier is it? I'm pretty sure that SK and KT can unlock your phone with no charge.

Edit: I can confirm that as of September 2010, all devices sold by SKT and KT except the iPhones are factory unlocked. If you want to make sure, just check in with the CSRs!

My device (SHW-M110S) is the Korean SGS I.
It is not unlocked. I took it back to Canada about 2 months ago and put in a local SIM card. It did not work......But, I did however buy that phone at the end of August beginning of September 2010.....

If it was locked, you could've talked to the CSR for an unlock code. Your device was probably locked because it came out before SK brought out the policy. But yeah, the new ones including the GS3 should be out unlocked.

Interesting to know what are the frequencies of LTE and WCDMA in SK unit
Hoping the SHV-E210S supports the following frequencies:

WCDMA: 850/900/1900/2100
LTE: 800/1800/2600

Exynos 1.4 Quad and 2GB..

With this spec, definitely i will import one to Australia.

One question tough, not sure why the SHV-E120S support 80 char messaging and i am hoping the E210S support 160 chars just like all other normal phone.

It's a korean thing, any msg over 80 characters turns into an MMS
You can avoid this by running a 3rd party sms app though easily enough.

June 28th for 3G version (SKT exclusive). I'd expect the LTE models to come out in early July. I feel like SKT is going to have them first, as Samsung seems to favor SKT more than any other carriers.
