I bought my phone in Hong Kong but currently live in the UK, is there any way I can change the region of my phone so I can use apps such as Samsung Pay UK?

  • Do you have carrier branded device? Have you tried to insert a UK sim card and then make a factory reset? – Robert Jan 26 at 16:15
  • @Robert when I bought the phone I put a UK sim in it then set everything up. Doubt that would make a difference – Harry Cameron Jan 26 at 17:17
  • Then the firmware is your problem. Try to get a UK/Europe firmware version and flash it via Odin. – Robert Jan 26 at 17:27
  • @Robert would it be difficult and could it completely destroy my phone? – Harry Cameron Jan 26 at 17:28
  • If you are using an original Samsung firmware image the chance is present but relative low, as those firmware images usually have a check and don't allow installation if the device does not match. – Robert Jan 27 at 11:00

go to sam mobile.com and select the latest rom of your country(currently using the device) and try flashing that rom.
