  1. Hi, I purchased a Samsung galaxy A 53 5G in Guilford and now I’m in Sri Lanka. Now the phone is stuck with the logo popping up. The local agent here says that they haven’t got the required software to repair it. What do I do. Please help me
    Thank you

  3. Carrier unlocked July update but based on AT&T’s network? Pardon my ignorance on this update fiasco that still exists. Do other networks get different firmware for an unlocked phone?

  4. An unlocked firmware update based on AT&T’s network? The update process is still as cloudy as ever. Does every U.S. carrier get their own separate firmware update for an unlocked phone?
