Is Samsung Galaxy A10e and A20 factory unlocked and can use it in Asia and Europe as well as South Anerica?

Hi @youngtaes.bxbxni,

All phones sold in Republic’s online store are North American factory unlocked and, in addition to Republic, may be activated with any service provider (domestic or international) willing to do so. It would be up to specific providers in the regions you mention traveling to whether they would activate them. The phones are also optimized for use in North America, so may come with coverage caveats when traveling internationally. Typically, those coverage caveats, if any, might mean lack of access to local 4G LTE networks. It depends on the local frequencies 4G uses. 3G and 2G is usually not a problem.

This may be of interest: International Travel with a Republic Phone.

I am not very good with tech, so bear with me.

  1. So both Samsung A10 e and A20 are unlocked?

  2. Even if I change the sim card for that specific region, will i still have a problem with access to service?

ALL Republic phones available since July 2016 are factory unlocked.

When you have a foreign SIM card in your phone, you won’t have access to your Republic services.

Yes

@louisdi has provided the correct answer with respect to Republic service. The other reality is short of the highest end phones (Samsung’s S series, Google’s Pixels, etc.) there is no such thing as a phone optimized to work globally.

Different regions of the world use different cellular radio frequencies particularly for 4G LTE data. That said, I would expect the A10e or the A20 to function well as a phone for talk, text and 3G data most anywhere one would travel. 3G data is perfectly acceptable for Internet access (apps, maps, web browsing). Unless you intend to stream high definition videos while traveling outside the U.S., I wouldn’t be concerned about finding a local (in country) provider and confident you would be able to do so.
