Was just checking if manufacturers can check if theres warranty on the phone with a imei number as i have lost the receipt and the manufacturer (samsung) offers a 24 month warranty?

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

of course u are...lol:-D

you can get IMEI no displayed on the phone screen by dialing following sequence
*#06#

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:
