My Galaxy Note fell and now the screen has a few cracks and it doesn't start I took it to Samsung service station who Quoted an estimate of over 19,000 INR for replacement of motherboard and screen which is pretty high to me as I bought it for 22,000 INR. If I replace the motherboard and screen myself will the IMEI no. get null if yes how do I restore it ?Will I have to load Android OS again if yes how?
Please help.
Also where can I find genuine original parts in INDIA I saw few on some sites which were US based or should I search locally.

Replacing screen won't change Your imei, but changing motherboard probably will (to some new imei) , so it won't be lost. Probably there will be some rom already installed on it, as it is made for note. Else You will have to use Odin like always.
