    IMEI check with new AT&T phone

    As you all know, I recently got a refurbished Nokia 6650 Fold through AT&T as a free upgrade. However, when I search for my IMEI number here:
    http://www.numberingplans.com/?page=analysis&sub=imeinr

    I get the error:
    "This IMEI number seems to be correct, but we do not have any information on this specific handset".

    Is it possible that AT&T sold me a fake phone? Hopefully my 6650 Fold isn't fake. Overall, it doesn't seem to have any missing features.
    My phone history:
    Nokia 3620 (2005-2008)
    Nokia N75 (2008-2009)
    Nokia 6650 Fold (2009-future)

    Not likely of that happening from an At&t corporate store or from the At&t internet site.

    More than likely the intenet site you used to search the IMEI # hasn't been updated with the IMEI series of your new phone. Remember that the site you linked is not owned or maintained by either A&t or Nokia. Either way, your phone would be covered under warranty and can be insured. Best advice is to keep all receipts and/or paper work related to the phone, write down the IMEI and SIM# for your records.
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    It's not a matter of if you win or lose, it's how you assign the blame

    Well, my phone is actually a refurb, however, it is quite possible that the IMEI number might have changed when the phone was refurbished. Unless AT&T actually sent me a brand new phone by mistake.

    Also, I just called an AT&T rep and told him my IMEI, and he said that the IMEI does indeed match with the model of the phone (Nokia 6650 Fold) in AT&T's system.

    No man, definitely not fake. My Touch Diamond doesnt come up in that search either.
