Re: Verification

What model does it say in "About phone" (Settings-->System-->About phone-->Model number), @Arniekip?

 

More importantly though, are you able to register for My Xperia (Settings-->Lock screen & security-->Find my device-->Protection by my Xperia)(you need to register from your smartphone)?

 

If you are able to register for My Xperia, then it is genuine - My Xperia will automatically block any non-Sony mobile devices, based on the IMEI (serial number)... Including counterfeight smartphones.


  • I can't help you if you don't tell me what mobile device you're using & what version of Android it is running, in English (you can use Google Translate - http://translate.google.com).
  • The more information you can give me, the easier I can help you!
  •  Please kudo this post if you think it has been helpful; or mark it as the "solution" if it fixed your problem, so that other users facing the same issue can find the solution!
