well i my S3 got screwed and its already out of warranty.. so i went to the local repair shop and he said he'll replace the motherboard.

Now my QUESTION is : How will i know if the motherboard he is replacing will be Brand New and not from any other Second hand phone or any used one....

I asked him .. he said it'll be new.. but still i have a doubt about it... as i am paying the price of NEW one..

So how to make sure the replaced motherboard is brand NEW not swapped from any older one ??

You could ask him for the bill or shipment papers that came with the board from samsung or from wherever he got it from.
If its official it should have a serial number or imei that you could verify.
Ask for the packaging it came in.
If it is not new, maybe you could get a reasonable discount.
After all a working mainboard is just as good bee it new or second hand.
Sorry for the bad english.
Cheers.

who knows?
It could be from an older stock or brand new stock.
Thats the downside off mass prudoction in your case.
You can always verify it with those apps.
Until you have it in your hands it is a 50-50 gamble.
Hope you get what you want.
Let us know how it ends up.
Cheers.

today he said to come tomorrow as he was busy putting IMIEI number on the motherboard..


IF it means that ITS NEW MOTHERBOARD ??

NEW MOTHERBOARD= have to regsiter new IMEI ???

or he'll put my old IMEI from dead Motherboard to new one ??

as the older motherboard is already dead then how do old IMEI is transferred to new one ??

Well from this i think that ITS NEW MOTHERBOARD AS NEW MOTHERBOARD HAVE NO IMEI AT DEFAULT and YOU HAVE To MANUALLY PUT IT IN ??
