Yeah they should as that's your phones identity, if mine goes for repair that's what they check.

you can get IMEI no displayed on the phone screen by dialing following sequence

as long as you can provide a "valid" receipt, the phone will be repaired for 24 months from that date, as a rule samsung do not have a track on imei numbers in relation to warranty validation as opposed to someone like Nokia, where a repair centre can simply key into the website and have an end date to the warranty, they usually have a 25-26 month warranty as they include 6-8week "stocking time".

Now a "valid" receipt can be pretty much anything, for example my old shop simply gave printed word receipts, so in theory could be easily reproduced;-). As long as the manufacturer can see a purchase date they are happy to pay the repair centre.

I recently had a problem with the bluray drive on an original ps3 (not manufactured since 07) but with a "valid" :thumbsup: receipt showing purchase as 11 months ago, they replaced it free of charge.:whistling:
