A quick check on this site http://www.imei.info/ says yes it is real - Please edit your post and remove your IMEI number for security purposes

Re: How Check My Phone Original or Fake.!

Hi all, 

 

I am new to forum,  yesterday I bought Sony Xperia L phone and by checking its imei at sony site available at this link http://103.4.144.182/sonymobile.co.jp/Sony_Mobile.aspx, after entering IMEI and click at the Check button, message appears and states that IMEI entered is not Genuine IMEI and by checking IMEI info site (http://www.imei.info/) it displays the exact model, supposedly it means it is original. Can you tell by this if my phone is original or not?

Re: How Check My Phone Original or Fake.!

Hi there, i bought a new sony e3. Then i tried to check the imei at imei info. But the result is this:

Model: V220
Brand: MOTOROLA
IMEI: TAC: 355290 FAC: 06 SNR: 384310 CD: 4

So what does this mean? Is this fake? Hopefully you would be able to take an action on this matter...thank you, im looking forward...
