Samsung Galaxy A70 Free & Unlocked Prices
When you order a Samsung Galaxy A70 from Clove Technology, you will receive an official UK or EU specification SIM Free handset.
All our phones are factory unlocked and ready for use with UK, EU & most global SIM cards.
The phones have support for global GSM & 3G networks; for 4G / LTE support outside of the EU, please check the specifications.
Where a product option states "EU Model", it will have been sourced directly from a European supplier. These phones should come factory sealed with the original Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger (Europlug 2-pin).
Where a product states "EU Convert", it will have been sourced from a UK supplier that has imported EU stock and converted it for UK sale.
These phones will be resealed with official Samsung branding and should contain a standard UK charger (3-pin). Please note this may not be the official Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger.
If you order an EU Model or Convert then you may find that Samsung Pay is unavailable, even if it is supported in your country.
This is because Samsung restricts the use of Samsung Pay so that it only works with banks registered in the same country as the phone's origin.
The origin country is recorded in the phone's firmware and cannot be adjusted by end users. Currently, we are unable to advertise the exact origin country of EU Models prior to sale.
If you require the use of Samsung Pay in the UK, we would recommend avoiding an EU Model or Convert, although if Google Pay is available and acceptable to you, this will be available to download and unaffected.
Dual SIM options
Samsung manufactures the Galaxy A70 in both single & hybrid dual SIM versions. If an option for sale on Clove Technology specifies "DUAL SIM" then it has the hybrid slot. If DUAL SIM is not mentioned in the option, please assume that it is the single SIM version of the handset.

*Since September 2013, Samsung has implemented a 'region lock' on all new stock. Clove Technology only has access to models designed for the “European” region, which covers both UK and mainland Europe. The compatible countries are listed below**.
For correct operation, this handset should be activated inside one of these countries with a SIM card issued for use there. The device will then be able to accept SIM cards from outside of these countries.
Activation requires turning the device on for the first time & completing set-up with the SIM installed, then completing at least 5 minutes of voice call(s) with this SIM.
Without activation you may still use the device outside of these countries when 'roaming' - using a SIM card from the listed countries.
If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock when first attempted to be used with a SIM card from outside of these regions. Local Samsung support may provide a code to unlock such handsets.
**All member states of the E.E.A and the following additional territories: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City.
IF YOUR CHOSEN DELIVERY COUNTY IS NOT LISTED, CLOVE TECHNOLOGY WILL BREAK THE SEAL ON THIS DEVICE AND ACTIVATE IT. YOU MUST AGREE TO THIS PROCEDURE IN THE CHECKOUT BEFORE THE SALE WILL COMPLETE.
