    Question Can dual SIM phones have same IMEI?

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S8 G950FD which is dual SIM but pressing *#06# shows the same IMEI for both slots. How is this possible? I am currently using two SIMs and they are working fine but I am confused about same IMEI part. As far as I know, dual SIM phones have two different IMEI numbers.

    Just checked on my N9: last figure differs 2

    But if it's working OK

    Yeah this is the crazy part that both SIMs are working. Is it possible that this device is the converted one i.e. it was actually single SIM but later converted to dual SIM!? Because I was reading on forums that you can do it. But even in that case IMEI should be different but whatever.

    Hi there, good afternoon

    Did you buy it second hand, or original? When your device is G950FD, it's a Dual-SIM device

    OK, when it works, it works...

    Are all functions functioning, like Secure Folder etc?

    Hi there, good evening

    Secure Folder should be on your device; if not: then something is wrong with your firmware (tempered)

    Go with your device to a Samsung Service Center: they can validate your device...

    Can confirm that I have 2 IMEI numbers.

    The little silver sticker that came with your phone should indicate that you have 2.
