Imei is prob useless now you posted it. Remove the pic. Never ever show you're imei to any one.

Also mine says made by Samsung. So I'd guess fake.

Well what happens with imei is that it controls connectivity with phone and networks. Blocked imei wont work so people look to change this with good imei. Posting a "good" imei that can be cloned to another phone is madness

Or boot into download mode, Hold down the power + home + volume down and then press the volume up. The second line should say PRODUCT NAME: GT-I9300 or GT-I9305
