The region lock is only being used in some parts of Europe at the
moment and on a select few models (our Samsung distributor sent us
some samples of region locked phones and they still accepted our local
sim cards... but we can't say of problems will arise in the future, so
for the time being, we are not selling any of those models and
sourcing those products outside Europe).
Regarding the Note 3, we do have the N900/N9000 3G model and the N9005
4G model. Direct pricing is as follows (best deal is on the 16GB N9005
Note 3 3G 32GB Black $730
Note 3 3G 32GB White $730
Note 3 LTE 16GB Black $690
Note 3 LTE 16GB White $690
Note 3 LTE 32GB Black $740
Note 3 LTE 32GB White $740
Let us know if you are interested
Don't forget, this is the Samsung Galaxy S4 - I just posted in this forum because I was confirming what the previous gentleman from CLOVE was stating - that Samsung will be rolling out this "upgrade" on other devices.
Here is the CSC (Again, from SGS4):
uhm, I surprised Samsung still keep their mouth shut.
-Samsung is good phones but after sale service is sh*t.

A quick thank you from everyone at Clove for the level of understanding in this comment thread and the odd customer testimony too!
This is undoubtedly a huge frustration – sure we’ve lost sales which no business enjoys; however it’s the confusion and extra work this has caused which compounds things. There have been industry mutterings reported by some news sites that this type of behaviour could be in the works from major manufacturers. It is pretty upsetting though that it was not communicated to us and other retailers fully until the procedure was finalised, orders had been placed and stock arrived.
We hate disappointing our customers, which in this case we’ve had to do many times over by cancelling and refunding orders, in some cases to long standing and valued international clients.
By the end of this week we should have a definitive update on the situation. We sent a Note 3 to offsite colleague Wardy in Thailand last week. He activated this there with a UK SIM. He could roam on the UK SIM but could not use his local Thai SIM, seeing the unlock SIM screen before he could proceed.
We have since sent UK activated handsets to a few choice customers this week, on the basis that they can return them if they do not work with their local SIMs. These customers are in regions that include Africa, North America and the Middle East.
Regardless of information from Samsung or anecdotes on forums and other blogs, we are conducting our own research on this, at our own costs, to cover all the bases.
Especially now we are also beginning to see other Samsung devices (new stock of the S4 & S4 Mini) with the same restrictions and warning stickers on the packaging. We want to be 100% certain of the message we give out to anyone wanting to purchase a new Samsung device and provide any support we can to legitimate international clients"
Can someone please ask the mod or admin to stick this page at front page of the topic? i think this page is usefull
