Google gets back into the phone sales business, offering Galaxy Nexus for $399


Tuesday 24th of April 2012 / androidcentral.com
The rumors were true -- Google once again is selling unlocked smartphones on its own, with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus going for $399 in the Google Play Store.The phone Google's offering is an unlocked pentaband GSM device, same as what many of us had imported previously. The "pentaband" part means that it'll work on AT&T and T-Mobile 3G/4G networks. And because it's unlocked, you can take it out of the country and pop in another carrier's SIM card without needing an unlock code.Google's tried selling phones before, starting with the original Nexus One in early 2010. That ended poorly, with customer support issues dogging Google, HTC and T-Mobile (which at launch was the only carrier to officially support the N1). Google finally shut down the phone store in May 2010and said the Nexus One would come to retail stores. That didn't happen. Later, the remaining Nexus One stock was offered as a developer device.So what happened? Google's Mario Queiroz told us at Google IO in May 2010 that"The web store as a direct distribution model is really a

I bought a used Samsung Galaxy Note. After calling AT&T and


Saturday 11th of May 2013 / justanswer.com
I bought a used Samsung Galaxy Note. After calling AT&T and getting the GSM unlock code number and buying the Walmart Family Mobile Kit, powered by T Mobile, and containing a new SIM card,, I thought that I was ready to fire it up and enjoy my new/used phone. But it was not to to be! This phone will not recognize a SIM card, any SIM card. I therefore am unable to unlock the GSM, because the screen to input the unlock code number will not come up. Why won't my phone recognize a SIM card and how can I fix it. I was lucky to buy this phone from a friend for $200 as I am on a very small fixed income so I wont be able to afford an expensive repair. Also,the. Phone worked fine when I bought it. It fouled up when I took the old SIM card out and put in the new (Walmart) card. We tested the new card and tried others that we knew were good, so it must be the phone. Please can you help me? Thank you, XXXXXOptional Information: What have you tried so far?: Eric, Yes I want to leave a deposit now but because I receive my disability check on the third day of each month and its so small, there is

Cloned Samsung Note II


Monday 10th of June 2013 / androidforums.com
Does anyone have one of these phones? What kind of problems have you had? I got one from Singapore, when I put my SIM card in the phone it shows my # it will hook up to Wi-Fi, but will not pick up cell phone signal. We have tried several different Sims (different carriers) but it does the same on all of them. I think there is a setting that is off?? Any ideas what would cause this? I even bought an unlock code but it does not work.

[Update: It Gets Worse] Samsung Has Begun SIM Locking Its Phones Across The World To Home Regions, Putting The Squeeze On Phone Importers?


Thursday 26th of September 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
Update: According to many users on XDA, this isn't a typical SIM lock, and uses an MCC-based (Mobile Country Code) lock that will not be disabled using a standard network-based SIM unlock code. The bit doing the locking lives inside the CSC (Consumer Software Customization) package in an MCC whitelist, specifying which country codes the device can be used in based on what regional software variant it is. Modifying the CSC without doing warranty-voiding kind of stuff is also apparently very, very tricky.It's entirely possible a community workaround will emerge, but for now, this basically means that even with a SIM unlock code, phones with this new locking procedure won't function with a SIM that has an MCC outside of the device's home region. This is substantially more burdensome for consumers and is definitely going to be a pain to deal with.There's been a rather widespread discovery, mostly made by Note 3 buyers, that Samsung has started adorning the boxes of its devices with a new sticker - and that sticker has some bad news. As part of what is apparently a new policy for the com

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 ‘regional SIM lock’ situation not so bad after all


Friday 27th of September 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
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. After your Galaxy Note 3 is activated using the proper regional SIM, the ‘regional SIM lock’ will be removed, and it will be free to use on other carriers in other regions. If you activate your Galaxy Note 3 with a SIM not in the same region you bought your device, it will be locked down to that region and will not work elsewhere. For example, if you purchase the Galaxy Note 3 in the United States, you’ll have to activate it using a SIM card from a U.S. carrier in order to ensure your device remains unlocked and useable in other regions.So what are your options if you have a foreign SIM? Well, you will have two options. The first is purchasing an unlock code for your specific country. After inputting the code for your country, the choice is yours as to whic
