I did just that. Unlocked a Galaxy A40 from Germany being in Bangkok using 5min talking with roaming German SIM and then the regional lock was gone.

I am having a problem with regoin lock (maybe), i bought my s8 one year back in germany, and i travel back to malaysia twice a year. Everytime i put in a new Malaysia simcard, the phone ask for a 4 digit pin to unlock the phone. I have been staying in germany and have outgoing call for 50 min, and incoming call for 1 hour and 15 min. Why do i require a unlock code to unclok my phone? Tried with new sim card pin, puk and all. The new simcard work completely fine in other phone but my s8.

Thank you for reply,

Yes using the same simcard with roaming will work. But regardless it work or not, the screen broke on the phone and I bought a new phone anyway haha

Hi I too faced the same problem in my new S10. However after speaking for 5 mins using a local sim to a local number, the lock was removed and I am able to use my India number now.
