    Shopmonk? I am sure this phone is rooted and so many functions will not work. This company does not disclose many important things on their website. So be careful.

      If you're that worry you can just plug the phone into a PC install Samsung softwares and install your own OS.

      This phone is probably new and in sealed packaging. Why would you assumed it's rooted and many functions will not work?

      I assumed you like to make shit up very often?

        The deal with newer Samsung devices is once they are rooted, Knox gets tripped. There is no known way to reset that. Several Samsung security features rely on Knox. You don't want to buy a phone when you're not certain if you'll be able to use Samsung Pay (for instance) out of the box or not.

          Are you saying the store opened up the sealed box and rooted the phone, stuffed up Knox and put it back into the box resealed it and sell it? Wouldn't that be just a waste of time? Why would they do that?

          @HandsomeMonkey: I couldn't possibly fathom why anyone would do that. But I speak from experience. For peace of mind, I'd advise that you seek a more reliable vendor. I have had devices in the past that appeared sealed and not tampered with to the untrained eye. They turned out to be not so brand new after unboxing them.

          @HandsomeMonkey: yes dear. I bought Galaxy C9 Pro. It was $399. When I received the phone there was a sticker on it "this phone is opened and resealed by shopmonk". All manuals were in Chinese. So in nutshell they bought phone from China at lower price, removed Chinese language Samsung software and installed English version of it. And now knox and few other apps don't work

        If someone cheat then I think I have right to shout everytime and make people aware about it. I am not imposing my decision on someone. I hope you & everyone else in this community are smart enough to decide what is good and what is bad for them.

          Your claims are only half true, full history is here if anyone wants to know the details. Please stop making up stories, your claim was rejected by PayPal (Not Shopmonk)- All the details and proofs are there in the history link.

        • +6 votes

          @shopmonk: In that history you never denied the phone is rooted. And it's same discussion here. Can you please clearly write and confirm here that my claim of rooted phone is FALSE? I am happy to provide all the evidences to prove that phone is rooted.

          Prove it if I am wrong.

          You are breaching the consumer law in Australia by advertising misleading information on your website.

          I guarantee that shopmonk won't comment on this.

          @Unavailable: gee that was a bit of a rabbit hole haha, tbh I think you should have just returned the phones, when they say "unopened/not used condition" they usually mean if its in a sell-able condition so they can sell it again so you would have been fine unless you had cracks in the screen or something. I also think they shouldn't have sold it to you like that in the first place and it is misleading and not right I'll probably be avoiding them now due to this so thanks for the heads up.

    From my previous experience, I found a sim card inside my phone, so this arise a doubt that the phone is not brand new.

    • +3 votes

      They have to put an international SIM card in to unlock the region restrictions due to this being a grey import. Normally they don't leave it in.

      • -4 votes

        That's right. For some region locked phones, Technicians have to insert a sim card to unlock the phone. Its very similar to Australian Pre-Paid phones, where operators (Telstra/Optus) subsidize the phones after locking them on their network.

      Bought an iPhone 6plus for shopmonk. Was sealed as per factory. I also received it in 3 days to Brisbane


      There is a good reason most ozbaegainers are willing to pay a little bit premium for AUS warranty.


    Could anyone tell me if this phone has RSAP

    • +1 vote

      Had to do a quick search as I had never heard of that before. We learn something new everyday.
      And yes, I believe this phone supports RSAP
