Hello,

I am looking to buy an A8 Tablet WiFi-version, but sadly the 64GB and 128GB versions are either not sold by stores or sold out online.

On Amazon I have the chance to get versions from different countries - like Italy or Spain - but I am not sure how that affects the usability.

I've read online that phones are region locked and can be unlocked with a sim card, but the tablet would not have a sim slot, so that would not work.

 

As I am traveling between countries and continents a lot, I would like to be able to use it everywhere. Is there a lock if I get a tablet from a different country?

Not aware tablets have a regional lock. Maybe worth speaking to samsung in shop or via chat to confirm this.

No clue, but looks like they are "hard" region locked. I can only buy the 32GB version in my country, the neighboring countries get the 64 and 128GB version no problem. Even the Samsung shop does not list them ... for whatever reason
