I've just found one more thing. While the IMEI printed in the phone's back and in the box's sticker is are matched, the S/N are not.
S/N in phone's back: CB5A1JEMZT
S/N in box's sticker: CB50R04XAH
Is this proper in an original Xperia arc S package?

go to settings > about phone
and check the imie number there also and match with box..

1 - Go to Menu and about phone make sure model is LT15i, and that it has a IMEI number
your should look very similar to it.
3 - Test Wifi connection/mobile connect, watch a video, play some song, make some phone call, reset phone with PC Companion, register to gmail, download 1-2 item from market...
If everything work....in my opinion its a normal phone.
If you still feel insecurity....I HIGHLY recommended that you return for refund, and order another 1 elsewhere.

My deepiest apologies, didn't see the S :")
in that case Auni's right, LT18i or LT18
and you're CPU speed should be no less than 1400mhz.....Use the Info from Quadrant and hidden menu *#*#7378423#*#* to match up the spec listed for Xperia Arc S

Haha. It's fine buddy. But even if it is an original device, still i think that it's a repaired one.
The reason i am saying because of the oval shape sticker just beside the SIM tray.
Couple of months ago I had to repair two devices from a service centre, I saw this type of sticker on these repaired handset.
So i think if possible, replace it.

Thank you for your very kind support.
The phone i received is a refurbished one.
Yesterday, i had taken a trip to the store where i bought the phone via their website, approximately 500 km to go there then return. They confirmed that they had shipped wrong item, which is a refurbished one, for me. Then they exchanged a brand new item for me.
I've just compared the new box's sticker with the photo uploaded by Auni and see that, except these S/N, IMEI, etc. number and the importer's name, they look the same. The S/N and IMEI printed in the new phone's back also match what printed in its box.
I really love the design of Xperia arc S. If it has a dual-core CPU and better GPU, such as PowerVR SGX540, Xperia arc S would properly kick Samsung Galaxy S 2 out.
I am very happy now.
