    According to this site, that is a Nokia IMEI number, which would indicate a fake. BUT.. I don't know much about this, let me get someone else.

    OK.... I checked a few different sites. First off, 35807301050570 isn't a valid IMEI, it is one digit short. I played around and 358073010505704 is the only valie IMEI with those digits, but it is showing as the IMEI from a Nokia 1600... a 9 year old candy bar phone. I checked a couple of different sites and they both came up with that same Nokia 1600 model....

    Now, IMEI is like a VIN or a MAC Address... has three parts; a region code, a manufacturer code, a serial number and a check bit. Now, unless Samsung bought up a bunch of Nokia's numbers... or they got reassigned, etc... I don' t know if that occurs or not.

    But... Your phone has a Nokia IMEI, based on what I can find.
