Anonymous, 12 Nov 2016Hlo I m buying Samsung s7 edge from dubai. .will it work proper... moreYes , I have an S7 edge bought from dubai.... yes it works perfectly fine in India .
But, I inserted the SIM in India...


But I had a talk with the samsung service team members... and they said there's no warranty for phone bought from abroad and...also said that the parts are different inside the phone and.. the OS also can't be reinstalled in India if there's any issue.. :(

Only screen replacement can be done ... as its a common part and it costs 15,000.

So this means we can use any phone bought from Dubai.. but service is an issue for parts other than screen :-( .

I entered in a SIM unlock code too many times on my Samsung S7 Edge and now my phone is locked permanently to the AT&T U.S. carrier network. Is there anything I can do to reverse this permanent locked to AT&T carrier?

Any phone purchased from the United Arab Emirates is fully unlocked and will work in any country on any network as long as the service network provides you with a simple card.

AnonD-510545, 03 Mar 2016 Wrong! you have to select a carrier when buying from samsung... moreI travel a great bit. I purchased my S7 Edge in Dubai. Since then I have had 3 country numbers and had no issues. I called home in the states and asked if my phone will work there with a ATT micro sim and there will be no issues.
