so my question is..here in xda forum is there any app so we cant unlock facking phone on our region?
First off, where did your brother get the phone?

In he got it in the United States, then the phone is not region locked but it would probably be carrier locked (unless it is from Verizon).

If he got it from the European Economic group then it is region locked and it has to be activated first in the original region and then can be used anywhere.

Good luck to you

my bro works on cargo ships as 2nd captain.
he was on fujairah and he bought it but when he opened the device he saw that the back of the phone writes ''american sim only''
..
yesterday he told me that he put on galaxy s5 greek sim from iphone and it worked perfect..
so i guess that the seller he done all the job before he sell it
btw today i will have news cauze its returned his home
