    A call to the customer services dept of the network you're intending to
    connect to would be a good start.

    Yeah. Right. Dunno what network you're on mate but I predict any attempt
    to verify an IMEI using this method would cost a lot of time and money and
    get you precisely nowhere. I've only used O2 customer service but they are
    a bunch of muppets who tend to like keeping you on hold, preferably on a
    premium rate number. I doubt they have the authority to release IMEI info
    over the phone.

    Why not just type in *#06# on the idle screen and see if the number matches
    the one printed on the handset, behind the battery? If the 2 numbers match,
    you should be fine. If not, report your 'friend' to the police. Better
    yet, blackmail him into doing you some massive favour / giving you cash.
