hi,

is there a way to check if my n9005 is region locked without inserting a sim card from a different region?

the phone is from Italy and was already updated to 4.4.2

As it is a European model it is definitely region locked, for a list of countries without region lock have a look here

hmmm 10x for the info.

my device was used in italy for a while but the guy that sold it to me did a factory reset, does that mean the region lock is back on (i read somewhere that samsung claims that the region lock is disabled after few minutes of use in the original region)

can someone confirm this?

All European models are Region Locked. There are no exceptions.

10x but will the lock still be enabled after using it with a local sim on original region and then doing a factory reset?
