    Re: Is it bad to give out your IMEI number?

    Poster of this is wrong

    First you need to know how manufacturer made imei


    First 8 digit is TAC number aloceted to each model ( if model sell in milions of psc TAC numbers are more )

    Last digit is calculate on Luhn formula

    So we have now only 6 digit left for made IMEI

    So nobady need to get it from you. Some cheater if need just generate it.

    But imei number will not help cheater after phone cloning etc.

    If some clone Your simcard can cheat you for a lot of money. But to clone sim card cheater must have it in his hand.

    So one more after gIveing IMEI number to eg codes seller nothing can happen.

    It is bad to give your Imei Number specially when you give it to the wrong person.
    They might use that imei number to harm you and it can even destroy your reputation.For example, they will use your imei as the imei number of the phone they wanted to sell online.
    Remember its your phone UNIQUE IDENTIFICATION ADDRESS

    No doubt it's dangerous to give or share your IMEI no. You shouldn't share it.
