Samsung region locking?
I once read an article about samsung locking even older phones with the region lock nonsense, including the S3, by locking with upcoming android updates, probably 4.4.
Anybody can confirm this? I surfed the net, but its cluttered with Note 3 being region locked, so i am not sure anymore. Would help me alot.
What would happen if somebody were to unlock the phone with an unknown carrier? Probably getting a simlock I guess...
I am really sad by this development because Samsung used to be the only OEM that produced phones with removable batteries and sd slots.
I am sure somebody will find a hack to this, or when custom roms get released but its still a bummer.
As a sidejoke:
In 2020, OEMs will read your minds and the phones will initiate a self destruct sequence if you think about selling it to a thirdparty or installing unauthorized 3rd party stuff. If you somehow survive that, your email will spammed with blackmail and you will be targeted with drones that will hunt you and your family...
