European Galaxy Note 3 won’t work with non-European SIM cards?

Well, here’s an odd limitation of the Galaxy Note 3 that might spell trouble for those that buy the device in Europe but travel to other continents – according to retailer Clove UK, the Galaxy Note 3 launched in Europe (SM-N9005) is only compatible with SIM cards issued by European network operators and will not work with SIM cards outside Europe. The Note 3 box comes with a label that warns of this incompatibility, so it doesn’t look like there will be a way around it.

As a result, Clove UK is only shipping orders within Europe. It’s quite stupid, to be honest – it essentially means that those travelling internationally won’t be able to use local SIM cards on their Note 3. Perhaps a solution will be found later on, but for now, better refrain from placing an order for Samsung’s latest phablet if you’re a frequent traveler.
