    what is the error message? Is it really Samsung phone? I think its better complain this issue to your phone seller. Because of looks like this is not a genuine phone.

    I know the market wasn't available in KSA for a while, it might be your carrier is blocking it?

    I actually think it was vice versa, Google didn't authorise use of the market there.

    If the carrier had a surplus of Android handsets before the block and they started selling them after, it might well be that they don't have the market app pre installed.

    I'll see if I can find some links for you.
