    I wanted to ask that if two different mobiles have same IMEI number then does it create problems. If yes then what kind of problems can arrise.

    I suspect as soon as the carriers detects that there are two phones with the same IMEI or ESN, then probably it will be blocked, blacklisted. They've done that for a very long time, ever since analog ETACS and AMPS, to prevent cloned phones being used.

    It's less likely to be detected, but the same applies: the moment it's detected the handsets will be blacklisted (and service providers in most countries/regions share blacklists).

    In many countries it is illegal to change the IMEI of a handset (including where I live), and hence if you are thinking of doing this for any reason I strongly suggest that you check your legal situation before proceeding. For the same reason I don't think anyone here can offer any advice beyond "don't do it", since posting advice on how to commit a crime could obviously cause trouble for the forum.
