So I've got two M7s, but one's got a bit of a scratch (you know the ones that are screen wide and have slightly bent the phone near the back?). Is there any possible way to swap out the S/N, P/N, and IMEI either by flashing or otherwise so I can claim the one for a screen repair under the guise of my newer phone? Or should I just be an honest man and just buy the components individually

afaik, changing/swapping IMEI's is illegal in most (if not all) countries, and i believe only the manufacturer has the right to do that.

Be honest!!

Thread closed,

The best thing to do is to simply send the device in for repair as is. At XDA we would never condone any actions that could void warranty etc.

Many thanks,
