Buying a fake (or cloned) device is a very scary thought. Thankfully, there are a number of steps you can take to make sure that you purchased a genuine Samsung Galaxy Grand i9060 versus a fake. First, read through and follow the steps in the great VisiHow guide below. If you are unable to tell that your device is fake or real, make sure you enter the following codes in your phone's Phone application:

If these codes work, your Samsung Galaxy Grand i9060 is very likely a genuine device. If they don't, however, you may have a cloned device on your hands. Contact Samsung's customer service line to talk to a customer service representative about the issue. Give them the device's IMEI and serial numbers. If the customer service representative finds your device in Samsung's systems, you're in luck: you have a genuine device. If the customer service representative doesn't find your device in Samsung's systems, you unfortunately have a clone.
