Gear S3 Reactivation lock

After an update my gear has been locked. I bought the gear from another country and it was brand new. I even activated the reactivation lock myself to my Samsung account. I am using the same account now to sign in to unlock the gear but it says "VALIDATION NOT COMPLETE" on my phone whenever I hit sign in. Any fix?

Sorry to hear that you are encountering this. Let's see what we can do to get around this.

 

Would you mind testing your Samsung Account? The best way to do this will be to attempt to login on this page, if you are able to login on that page you can authenticate your account.

 

If you have verified that you can login with those credentials, have you verified that this is the account that you used to enable the reactivation lock?

Re: Gear S3 Reactivation lock

That's pretty interesting, would you mind providing with some more detail about your specific device?

  • Model Number
  • Software version
  • Carrier (if you have one)

You can find this info in Settings > Gear Info.

 

Did you notice this after an update as well?

Hey, I hope you are doing well, I just wanted to drop by and see if you could let me know when the last time you had an update was, I'd like to get a good idea as to exactly when this lock started so that we can look into this further.
