I agree. It's why I pay more to buy unlocked phones from the get go. I should not need to do a hack in order to use the phone as I wish.

It strikes me as weird that if they are touting this as a business device, and businessmen go abroad to the US from the UK all the time, why would they lock it to a region? It just doesn't make sense.

I refuse to give up hope though. I really want this device. I sent a message to Samsung on Twitter; let's see if they respond.
