Please be advised that Samsung have now placed region locks on all of their SIM FREE handsets.
Clove Technology only have access to the “European” models of new Samsung stock. The countries considered compatible with the device will be listed on the handset’s packaging. Currently this includes all members of the EEA and the following countries: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City. This is subject to change at any time without notice.
This means that any SIM card from a network provider in those listed countries will be compatible with this device. You will also be able to use these SIM cards whilst ‘roaming’ outside of the listed countries.
If you insert a SIM card from a provider that was produced and intended for use in a region outside of the listed countries, then you will be unable to use the device.
For example; If you travel to the USA, be it for business or pleasure, you can use your UK / EU issued SIM card and ‘roam’ on the US networks, but you can not substitute your EU SIM for a US SIM card in this mobile device.
