i already read a lot about Simlock. My girlfriend from Nicaragua is currently staying here with me in Europe. I want buy here a new Cellphone, cause hers not workin well anymore. I thought on A33 from Samsung.
My worry is now, when i buy this cellphone, she cannot use with her SIM (Centralamerica) when she comes home.
Yes, i read that when you use a call for 5 min here in europe with a europe simcard then is unlocked.
But i dont trust it, means i buy now the phone and i cannot be sure if it works on Central America. What choices i have. So my questions:
1.) Samsung Smartphones still have Region lock? Or was that in past
2.) Can i check after 5 min calling via Options or something if the Cellphone is still locked, to get sure it will work with any sim in the world?
3.) ´Does Samsung give me easily a code to unlock it?
She has birthday and she will stay here until june. When she goes back i want she has a propoer working cellphone. For any suggestions i would be happy. Thanks a lot

thanks for your reply. Ah ok that is also something we have to check of course. But 5G is not something she will use. Is really just internet, calling - like using the cellphone So my worries are more for the lock
