**Since September 2013, Samsung have implemented a 'region lock' on all new stock. Clove Technology only have access to the “European” models of new Samsung stock. The compatible countries are listed at the end of the product description and marked on the product's box.
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.
You may still use the device outside of these countries when 'roaming' - using a SIM card from these countries in an already activated device.
If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock when 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.
