Hi Community, 

 

I bought a GALAXY J6 in Europe (Brussels) from the Proximus Telephone Company and then shipped it to Venezuela.

The phone was never activated in Brussels. 

 

Once I got to Venezuela and inserted a local SIMCARD, here is the message I got: 

GALAXY J6 REGION LOCK Request.jpg  

 

Can someone please help me with the process I need to follow in order to get the REGION LOCK Code needed to use this smartphone outside of Europe and in my case, to use it in Venezuela? 

 

Thanks in advance;

 

Daniel

Hi,

 

I did contact the store where I bought the Mobile Phone.

I'm not sure if you can contact SAMSUNG main office Direct.

 

Good luck

Hello Jessy,

 

The first thing you should do is to contact SAMSUNG int he place where you bought the phone (Jordan).

They should be able to provide you with the TWO CODES needed to UNLOCK you SIMCARD.

 

Before you call, please make sure you have a copy of the original invoice when purshased.

 

Good luck Jessy and be patient.

Hi:

 

One thing i do to avoid regional lock is make a 5min call like is descripted in the box. With an european sim card i call to any free number of the provider to get support abroad and surfing differents choices to get 5min call. Then hang up and insert a local sim card and region lock is eliminated.

 

Bye.
