If your knox is 0x1 then its been used or tampered with. Are you in the EU?

Yes, the phone wouldnt ship with a knox status of 0x1. The phone has definitely been used or tampered with. Tell him to swap it or you'll involve trading standards.

I think you bought an export set meant for Europe countries.
I did buy as well as some of my friends. Few of us got KNOX 0x0, but unfortunately 3 of us got KNOX 0x1.
That's why, if any of my friends want to buy export set again, I would suggest them to check in front of the supplier/retailer (before payment) by goin into download mode. If got trip, don't pay.
