Samsug Galaxy S3,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy SIII UK SIM-Free Smartphone - Pebble Blue (16GB) - Discontinued by manufacturer (Wireless Phone)
The product delivered was in good condition and when I booted it up came up in as it was an English phone - all was working well until I connected to the Samsung Kies software - where it gave me a message that the installed version of the phone firmware could not be updated... this will be a problem since I wanted the latest Android 4.3 that is currently rolling out...
The firmware rather than being BTU (UK SIM Free) showed instead KOR - and also some of the update firmware options in Kies 3 came up with what looks like Chinese writing...
I am going to have to download the BTU software and reflash the phone to be a UK version....
I would have thought products purchased via Amazon should be UK models.... so for that reason alone I have taken two stars away
