OK I'll do that. Is receiving calls good enough?

We don't know. Everyone hates region locking, but no one has done any rigourous testing. The mechanism that clears the region lock may round down minutes or perhaps misses some calls. Maybe Samsung actually set it a bit higher e.g. 7 minutes to foul up grey market sellers.

I would check the blacklist to be certain. In your place, given a rash of people saying that they made 5 -10 minutes of calls.. and the region lock remained in place,.. and if it would cause you significant inconvenience if it remained intact - I would strive to have 10+ minutes of both received and placed calls.

Do what you think best. And feel free to let Samsung know that you are unimpressed.
