Question [Q]RegionLock on S4 Mini

Did anyone of u update to the new firmware > MK*+ from november or new KitKat and got his phone locked by RegionLock ?
This mostly happened when u got a phone from a different region and u use it in other region. For example u buy phone in India and u use it in europe

Default Nope....

I am from India and my I9195 is not officially sold here. My schoolmate bought this device 5 months back from UK or Dubai.(Not sure where) It had UK unbranded JellyBean firmware and then I immediately updated it to brazil jb and I never had network issues.
Even with kitkat firmwares I did not face network issues. Do you mean RegionLock results in unidentified networks in other regions? If so then my s4 mini is not locked.

Well RegionLock is official on Note 3 and S5 . Thought our phone will get it too with an update. I am glad it did not
