Default [Q] question about xperia sp an it's IMEI

Hello, i have a question: do i need to worry about my IMEI while flashing a custom rom to my xperia sp? Or is it fine?

I have f***ed up my s3 by flashing a custom rom to it, it wiped my IMEI number, is this the same case for the xperia or is it only for samsung?

Thanks already!

Custom roms for XPERIA can't change your IMEI.

I've lost my IMEI (*#06# blank, no signal thingie) few times after flashing a ROM some time back, but not recently though.. Probably an issue with recovery used for flashing. (I didn't see that problem in newer versions of recoveries.)

When that happened, got things back to normal by flashing a ROM ftf with flashtool. Some have reported that restoring a cwm backup would get back the imei. Anyway, it's "difficult" to erase imei in our Sony than Samsung it seems..
