Hmmm...is the note 9 running on exynos or Snapdragon. If your firmware runs traditionally on one but installed to another this could cause some issues. I have flashed my Note 9 from Saudi and it flashed fine. I haven't updated the phone yet as my provider hasnt released a update since I have flashed the phone. Might be worth a reflashing and seeing if that works....maybe wait a few updates and try again. Uninstall Samsung pay and install a British Samsung apk of the net

You can flash any Samsung phone by downloading your countries firmware and flashing it via Odin. I have Samsung phones from different countries and flash UK software to them all the time. This isn't for you if you don't feel confident with this type of thing. If your willing to give it a go and learn then use this guide to help BUT do your research on all these aspects involved, YouTube and XDA developers are a good place to start. It's worth noting that this will wipe all data on your phone....SO BACK UP YPUR DATA AND REMOVE YOUR SD CARDS. I would advise people to download network/provider firmware eg EE, O2, T-mobile or At&t as this will unlock features like wifi calling ect but it can sometimes lock your device to the network. This method can used to fix any software based problems or wiping malware viruses off your phone. So it's a good thing to know. THIS IS AT YOUR OWN RISK.....EVEN THOUGH THE RISK IS LOWER IN FIRMWARE FLASHING THAN OTHER THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH MOBILE PHONES I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CRASHES OR BRICKED DEVICES.........ONCE AGAIN PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH. Notes Before The Method the cable you are using to connect to the pc should be the original charging cable. (If you don't have the original then use the one your using and see if it works) Your phone needs to be at least at 60% battery. Older phones sometimes don't work with newer versions of Odin so if this is happening download a older version. If it's a new phone and you want to personalize it from scratch then no need to back up and restore any data. Remove your SIM card to prevent it from being SIM locked to one network. ( I read it somewhere, not sure how true this is but I do it and seems to work) After removing your memory card, plug it into your computer using a memory card extension and copy photos to your computer. Just in case the phone formats the memory card when entered back in to the phone, after the firmware is installed. Method 1. Go to Sammobile via Google chrome in incognito mode. (If you don't do this they will re-direct you to a sign up page, everytime you press download) 2. Download Firmware (by searching it using your model number eg SM-N960F for a Note 9, find it in your about device in setting), find this by picking the lastest firmware thats with your network and match the Baseband version or the last part of build number. (found in system info in the settings) 3. Install the latest version of Odin and install secondary device drivers on your pc/Laptop. 4. (On your mobile) back up your data in the samsung cloud. Setting>Cloud and Accounts>Samsung Cloud>Backup settings> Back up. If you have a memory card, move all your photos ect to it and remove it from your phone. 5. Go into setting and tap build number 7 times to unlock developer options. After unlocking it, enter developer options and enable usb debugging. Setting>developer options>USB Debugging. 6. Once the firmware file has stopped downloading on your pc extract it and send it to your Downloads File. 7. Open Odin and load each part of firmware in the right box e.g. AP with AP, BL with BL, CSC with CSC ect (Do not load up Home CSC) 8. Before you plug your phone up to the computer. Turn your phone off and enter Odin mode(Download mode). Each device has a different way of doing this so just google how to do it on your specific samsung device. 9. Once your phone is in download mode plug it into the computer and press start. This should take a couple of minutes but some files may take longer. 10. Once the Odin confirms the process is done by showing the pass sign unplug your phone and turn it on. First time you turn it on May take a minute or two to load. 11. Enter your google email and password, and restore all your data on google. 12. Then enter your Samsung user and password, after that press restore and choose the date you backed up on before you flashed your phone (at point 4) 13. Enjoy all done.
