If the phone doesn't use a CSC that include XFV, XFA, XFE etc., it won't work. For example, Vietnam is in the same CSC code as South Africa so you can flash local firmware and use Samsung Pay with no issues. I could be wrong but never buy a phone from outside your country if you intend on using region locked services like Samsung Pay.Hi all, a question please .....
I am considering buying a Samsung A8 (2018) Dual Sim from a local supplier, they say it is a"special import" - I do understand what that means .......
The phone does however tick all of my requirements, just one concern - I would like to use Samsung Pay, however I did read this on the Samsung SA website under the FAQ "Only South African models will be supported (XFA / XFV SKU Codes) "
I'm assuming that the phone will ship with another version of the firmware other than that which is stated above.
Does this mean that I will need to flash local firmware ? Or have other users with "imported phones " managed with stock firmware that came installed on their phones ?
