Not warrantied in the U.S. - Must go through EU
on September 11, 2014
Both a warning and some good news. The sellers do not seem very well informed, so here is the result of my research.
WARNING - This is not warrantied in the U.S. You have to call the Samsung EU for assistance.
Samsung UK 0330-726-7864
GOOD NEWS - Unlike the U.S. version of this phone which is only warrantied for 1 yr, this actually has an automatic 2 Yr Warranty of parts, 6 months for battery, and 12 months for the charger.
If you live in the U.S., you will have to check the bands (4G: LTE 800 / 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600) against what your carrier offers, as some, like T-mobile only use 1700/2100, and thus you will not get as much 4G coverage as when you order a phone from your carrier and it is set up for their bands. This may or may not make a difference to you, but you should research this first, and test the phone when you get it to see if you are getting the service level you desire.
