  2. Hi. I earlier wrote about a samsung phone which i bought at Fone xpress which i tried to register and was told it was fake. Well, I actually bought it from tuscom in tuskys bt it had the logo fonexpress assurance on it. And it wasnt fake. Im the one who made a mistake when sending the imei no. I omitted the strokes. Thanx anyway.
