    I just received mine from ebay in UK, it came in a AT+T box but when I put my IMEI number into the IMEI.info site, it came up as a HUAWEI, model E170

    I'm confused!!! Does this mean it's fake? Is there any info on this that I can take a look on or any tests I can do? My S-pen is working fine and connecting fine, so I'm not sure.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    If that's fake, it's the best fake in the history of fakes. I'd say that IMEI.info is giving some bad info.

    I didn't think anything of it until I put the IMEI number in. Maybe I will try a different IMEI site and see what it comes up with.

    It looks real. I would try to install the Samsung app and log in.

    had the same problem I think the website is giving inaccurate information. I used checkmend in the end which is a good website although it will cost £1.99. The down side of using a phone designed for another country is your galaxy will most likely be model number sm-n910A where as the UK version is sm-n910F the reason they have different model number is different country networks run on different wavelengths so you may find the note 4 you have won't connect for 4g in the UK only 3g

    Thanks all for your responses.

    I put the number in on: How To Find Your IMEI on a Samsung Android Phone | Geek Squad and it brought the correct model number up, so that's a good sign.

    Andrew Read1, yes that is correct, model number is sm-n910A from AT+T. I will take a look at that site, thanks!
