There is only one person here who is saying that the US $1000+ unlocked S23 has a region hardware lock and can't be used overseas.
I have spoken to Samsung USA Tech support and they DENY the existence of a region hardware lock for an unlocked phone, even for the U/U1 variant as asserted by the poster of this information.
I am simply trying to get to the truth here. I understand carrier locks, I also understand soft locks, but a a permanent hardware lock makes no sense what so ever.
Does anyone know the truth?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you. A certain forum member here is saying the exact opposite and is also posting on reddit / wikipedia / AT&T forums / etc the exact same thing over and over again without any evidence at all and it is not being refuted in the least.
