Deepali Gulati Started The Discussion:
Would like to know if your mobile is original or not?!!
Press the following on your mobile *#06# and the-international mobile equipment identity number appears
Check the 7th and 8th numbers







7 th

8 th








IF the digit number Seven & Eight is 02 or 20 that mean it was assembled in the Emirates which is very Bad quality

IF the digit number Seven & Eight is 08 or 80 that means it was manufactured in Germany which is not bad

IF the digit number Seven & Eight is 01 or 10 that mean it's manufactured in Finland which is Good

IF the digit number Seven & Eight is 00 that means it was manufactured in original factory which is the best Mobile Quality ...

IF the digit number Seven & Eight is 13 that means it was assembled in
Azerbaijan which is very poor quality and potentially very dangerous to your health!!!

An IMEI number-The International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number is an international identity number used to uniquely identify a mobile phone. The 15-digit IMEI number is an electronic fingerprint transmitted every time a phone is used, which reveals the identity of the mobile handset.

How can I find out my IMEI number? IMEI numbers are independent of the phone number and are usually written underneath the battery or on the back of the handset. Mobile phone users can also check their 15 digit IMEI number by dialling *#06# on their mobile handset. Mobile phone owners should make a note of their IMEI number and keep the details in a safe place.

If u lost your mobile, send an e-mail to cop@vsnl.netwith the following info.
Your name:
Phone model:
Last used No.:
E-mail for communication:
Missed date:

"No need to go to police station"
