Friend was looking at some fake designer phones in china, and some are advertised as having a unique IEMI - others are not.

Now, assuming that the others share the same IEMI, what would the result be if trying to use several at the same time on the same network?

My guess is that, because another phone with the same IMEI code (not IEMI :-)) is on the network you probably wouldn't be able to connect the phone up. However, hopefully someone more educated in this area will have a more certain answer.

johnr: Alarm bells would ring


wouldnt this most likely result in that IMEI being banned from the network?
