    Question What Country is my Galaxy Tab 8.9 from?

    HI Guys,

    I bought a Samsung Galaxy tab 8.9 3G/WiFi in Malaysia a month before its release here. How can I tell which country it came from?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Kindly
    Clint

    You have a Sales Code.
    To find it
    1. Just type * 272 * #IMEI on the phone device. (find your imei on the box or type *#06#)
    Then look on sammobile or Google for country.

    Hi greenman,
    I cant find the box so i downloaded and installed IMEI Widget from Google Playstore. It reckons the IMEI is 357113040496416 but im not sure how to use this to find out my country? I tried Googling it but nada. Im not sure where to find it on sammobile?

    You can either dial the number on your tab:
    *#272*357113040496416#

    or download the nitrality app from the Play Store.
    Choose Tools and Change CSC.

    Now either Google the 3 letter code, or look on sammobile/samfit for the country.

    Downloaded Nitrality but it says it needs root access and so wont run.
    As for "dial the number on your tab: *#272*357113040496416#" how do you do that? I mean the only way a keyboard will come up is if you are using an app that requires it such as web browser or taking notes etc etc. When you enter in anything it just types it into a browser or notepad or whatever. Its not like my Galaxy S3 where you can bring up the dialler and type it in.

    PS where is the country list on this site :-S

    If your tab is not a 3G model, then you won't get a dialler.
    The country of origin will be Korea, and then the Sales Code (CSC) could be changed from the country you are in or where you purchased your Tab.
    I presume you are just interested in the country of origin, as it has little affect upon how your Tab functions.
