As Samsung Galaxy Note 3 devices have started to land in the hand of consumers, those buyers are finding their boxes adorned with a new sticker bearing some potentially bad news. The stickers inform buyers that the device will only work with a SIM card from the region in which they were sold.
Buyers of LTE devices will have to take a punt on which countries they want to use the devices in because fragmentation of spectrum allocations will make it almost impossible to build devices that will work anywhere.
Yesterday we learned that Samsung would be implementing region specific SIM locks on future devices. Today, UK Mobile Review uncovered a way to avoid SIM locking with the Galaxy Note 3. The most important thing you need to do is activate the device with a SIM from the same region in which you bought the handset.
I own Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 NT-8000 and live in country where OTA updates are not available yet. Probably they will never be ;-) So I want to update FW manually through ODIN. I've read many how to manuals but still not sure if I upgrade new SAMSUNG FW in region where It is not still available will be still able to make calls and use data services.
I am running an HP Dv4 1465dx laptop with Ubuntu 11.04 (Wubi) and I cannot use any of my USB devices.
None of the devices are detected when using 'lsusb' in the terminal.
I have restarted the computer several times, but no devices work. I have a usb mouse and flash drive plugged in, the devices appear to be powered but the system will not detect them and I cannot use them.
In a joint announcement issued by AT&T and Samsung, the two shared information on some devices slated to be available “in the coming months” for AT&T’s 4G LTE network. The devices include three smartphones powered by Android and one tablet device.
Headlining the list of forthcoming devices is the Samsung Galaxy Note II, the eagerly awaited for successor to the Samsung Galaxy Note.
