    S3 Imei

    Hi,
    I am new in the forum.
    I would like to know what a /01 at the end of my S3 phone IMEI means. I listened that it could be a potential security risk.
    If this is true, How I could restore my phone? How it could happened if I always installed market applications?
    Many thanks.

    Not sure what the numbers mean, but they change with firmware updates.

    I don't think imei is supposed to change. That is unique to the phone. It is printed on a sticker behind your battery. It can be changed/corrupted when flashing software. /01 at the end I not something I have seen. If this number is different from what it is supposed to be and you are sure that you have never installed or flashed non market software, than that is interesting

    I also have the /01 under Settings, About, Status, IMEI SV.

    Some i9300 users are reporting that it changed after a firmware update to /03 or /05.

    I don't ever recall having it before this phone either.

    It appears that normal Samsung updates are relocking unlocked phones too. I wonder if vendors unlocked them and then sold them as factory unlocked?

    Many thanks for your replies.
    I got my IMEI with the *#06# function. If you try it, does it give you the /01 at the end too?
    It could be normal as Ollie said.
    Under settings/about/status I see the IMEISV 01 (Imei software version?)

    No, the dialer return does not show that /01 in my IMEI.
