The thing is if you get a phone from another country and want to use it in Turkey you need to register your IMEI code and pay a fee of approx 100 euro to get it registrered officially + u need to show a stamp of entering the country on your passport. This is done to prevent stolen phones to be sold.
Now the thing is.. I registrered my imei of my iphone 4. But after some time the homebutton wouldnt work so i send it to get replaced. Now the iphone 4 got replaced = refurbished = new IMEI. That means I got to register again and pay 100 euros.
Internally Apple knows that my old IMEI is replaced to another one. Cant I get an official document or whatsoever to prove it?
Does this mean I am screwed ? (Pardon my English, its not my main language.)
All cell phones, when replaced, will have a unique IMEI. This is not unique to Apple. If you want documentation that it was replaced by Apple, ask Apple for documentation.
We have no way of knowing whether they can or will provide this. We're just customers like you.
Yeah, found it out also. Thanks for your reply, they dont have staff in Turkey. So ill call the international number.
