Stock Origin & Compatibility

All our phones are SIM Free & Factory Unlocked, compatible with UK, EU & most global SIM cards, with support for global GSM & 3G networks. For 4G/LTE & 5G support outside of Europe, please check the specifications.

Clove Technology primarily obtains stock from a manufacturer's official UK supply chains. These products will be displayed as a 'UK Model'.

Occasionally Clove source products from the European mainland. These will be marked as an 'EU Model', supplied factory sealed with a 2pin EU mains charger or 'EU Convert', opened to swap to a UK charger and resealed.

EU sourced phones will have a full warranty and are compatible with all UK networks. We do not source any products from Hong Kong or other Asian markets.

Samsung Pay

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. At this time 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.

Samsung Region Lock

Samsung implements a 'region lock' on all new smartphones. This restricts use of SIM cards to the original region their phones are intended to be sold in.

Clove Technology sells Samsung phones intended for the “European” region, which covers the UK, mainland Europe and some other select territories. The full list is below.

If you are ordering for delivery to a destination outside of this list, we will need to activate the phone prior to shipping, so that you can use a local SIM card.

To activate the phone, we must turn it on, complete set-up with a European SIM installed, then make at least 5 minutes of continuous voice call with this SIM.

Without activation, you can only use the device outside of the listed countries if 'roaming' with a SIM card from the intended sales region.

If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock if you attempt to use a SIM card from outside of these regions.

COUNTRY LIST: **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.
