Furrin' Galaxy Note Pro

  morddwyd 17:31 22 Jul 2014

I've just received a Galaxy Note Pro which I ordered from Expedia, and is was all set up, including "Get Started" and warranty, in Polish.

No problem switching to English, of course, but does this mean I have a non UK ROM and could I have trouble in the future?

At £200 cheaper It would have to be a pretty big problem for me to send it back!

Whoops! Apologies to Expedia, it was Expansys.

As they are made in Taiwan and designed to work anywhere in the world, I expect the ROM is all the same and its just software to change the settings to suit the country.

Certainly no apparent problems.

The only reason I ask is that whenever you look at rooting a Samsung device they always stress using the correct ROM for your region, and there is a huge list of regional ROMs, even within the EU.

Have you tried to check for a software update yet?

  morddwyd 20:44 29 Jul 2014

No. It is already 4.4.2 which is the latest Samsung have issued.

I'll wait for the next one, but thanks for the response.

"I'll wait for the next one"

Yes, I understand that, but there was a reason for my question. Some people have experienced error messages when trying to check for software updates on phones sold in some regions.

It might be worth doing a check.

Yes, I see. Thanks.

No, no problem. usual message "Latest updates already installed".

Think perhaps I'm looking for trouble where there is none.

Glass half empty syndrome again!

That's good.

I mean the 'no problems' part, not the 'looking for trouble where there is none' part. Look at that glass a different way, and relax.
