My N3 is also from Kogan. I suspect mine was activated in Hong Kong before being shipped to me even though the OLB region is not meant to have Region Lock enabled. I had written to Kogan before buying the phone enquiring on the Region Lock of the devices they ship. I guess they activated the phone in Hong Kong just to be safe.
Looking forward to rooting and loading Omega ROM but until the process is a little more mature, I'm holding off.
Great to see so many people working hard on this device.
