Last Monday I bought a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime Plus in Extra Store here in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. When I arrived at home, I see the sticker: “Middle East and North Africam SIM Card Only” 🙁
I know my Indian and Bengali workmates often buy Samsung phones as gift when they go on vacation. So I asked them how they unlock these kind of phones. It was very simple!
First, you need to call your origin country for about five to seven (5-7) straight minutes using a Saudi SIM card inserted to the phone.
Second, after calling, it will be unlocked already. If you have a Roaming SIM card, you can insert and confirm it working too.
* Khurram mentioned in the comments section that Pakistan is included in the MENA Region, so there is no need to do the Call procedure.
* ANDRES mentioned in the comments section that you can also call local numbers and this will unlock the phone. Please comment if it worked for you.
