How to know if my S9+ is region unlocked

Hi, 

 

I just bought an  S9+ and it says: European Sim Card Only!

 

I intend to use it in Pakistan. So I searched for its solutions and found that I must make a call at least 5 minutes long from EU in order to remove the region-lock.

 

My question is: Is there a way to verify whether or not the region lock is removed?

Hi @RayyanRiaz

Unfortunately there's no indicator to show that the region lock has been removed. I'd recommend making a 5-10 minute cumulative call to a local number in the region the phone was purchased, using a SIM from that region. This should ensure the lock is removed and allow you to use a local network SIM in Pakistan.

Will flashing the phone with different csc not work?
