That's really unexpected, especially considering that 3 stopped locking their phones ages ago . Hope Clove resolves the matter to your satisfaction. If they ignore you, just return the item. PayPal or your credit card provider can also help you if clove are uncooperative.
My dad just bought one, delivered Saturday gone. Seems to be locked to 3 network!! (fierce) No other sim recognized. In fact, when another sim installed & call attempted, 3 network voice says " not enough credit blah blah blah, top up". Very strange. Email sent to Clove, awaiting reply. Oh, & has European plug....
Can't recommend this company . Had a fault on a mi mix 2 and they didn't want to know . They insisted I sent it back to manufacture despite my contract being with them . Got refund via PayPal as they refused to reply to PayPal's emails .
Sorry, obviously Note 11 as shown in the link. Someone on another thread on the site mentioned the release date for the Redmi Note 11 and just thought it worth mentioning to anyone who might be interested in an 8. Don't know any further info
Or is it Redmi Note 11 on the way? Considering that Redmi 10 was realeased 2 months ago I wouldn't expect Redmi 11 for a while. :)
