Questions and Answers

A friend of mine is selling a Samsung Galaxy S4 and I have the IMEI and want to know if it is original or not?

Editor's note: We deleted the IMEI number you provided since they are device-specific and someone could use that number to find your carrier account information.

No two phones have the same IMEI number, and a fake Samsung Galaxy S4 will not use a real IMEI number. Keeping those two facts in mind, go to this website to make sure that it recognizes the IMEI number as assigned to a Samsung Galaxy S4. If it does, then you don't need to worry -- your friend's Galaxy S4 is genuine! If the website doesn't recognize the IMEI number as assigned to a Samsung Galaxy S4, then you'll want to look elsewhere for a used Galaxy S4, since the one your friend is selling is using a fake number and is likely fake itself.

Bought an S4 of eBay. After a month, the phone wouldn't charge. So sent it back for replacement, which would lose its charge within a few hours of sitting on the bench. I sent back for another replacement which I just received and after use for just an hour or two the screen has gone blank and non responsive. I am starting to believe the phone is a fake
