Ok so I didn't realize the guy at a phone repair place wrote down my imei on my receipt until I got home....I asked him why he wrote it down and why he needed it, he said to keep record that I came in. Well there's nothing really I can do about it now....


I heard people can clone your imei and get your phone blocked on a network, how likely is if it were to happen? I don't really trust the guy and I am so pissed at myself for not paying attention to what he was doing.

Am I just being paranoid?

Yeah your been a little paranoid they keep your imei as a record in case there's something wrong with your phone again and you take it back its just to confirm your taking them the same phone they fixed and not another identical phone a shop were I take my phones to get fixed does the same thing
