The decree that was issued last year in order to prevent illegally imported devices and protect the consumer from counterfeits might be dropped next week by the new Telecom Minister according to reports from Lebanonfiles. I really hope this is true because this decree is absolutely useless and has been causing headaches for all parties involved. In fact, it is not even working properly as my friend last week couldn’t register his iPhone because someone had also an iPhone (Fake one probably) in Lebanon with the same IMEI but registered to another line.
