Hi!

I have bought a note 3 from a local mobile phone shop in Singapore. It doesn't appear to be a local set. How do I check the country of the phone? Any kind advice?

By the way, I'm able to register online with Samsung do I think the phone is genuine.

Go to recovery. If you are unrooted you should see a 3 digit code in the bottom right corner (UK no carrier is BTU, Australia no carrier is XSA, you get the picture). Do a search on region codes...
