    Went to register my phone on Samsung's site, and when I put in my IMEI number, it told me the manufacture date of my phone. Thought it would be fun to see when everyone's phone was manufactured, who has the "grandpa" phone among us ;)

    Mine was 11/21/2011

    Here is the link to the registration site:

    I tried this but it kept telling me my serial number was wrong. hmmm

    Edit to say: It worked now. Mine is 11/26. This is my 2nd device. Had to return the original I got at launch. And not sure if I am keeping this one!

    It might be interesting to see who has screen banding issues or receptions issues and compare them to when the phone was manufactured.

    If you already registered, you can't seem to get the info, however.....

    If you pull the battery, there is a date code under there, it should read 11 11, for the month/year. Won't be able to get the date of the month though. Maybe I'm missing something, but poked all over the Samsung site.

    This was already evident on a prior Samsung phone, that the date code stamped matches the manu date (example is the Droid Charge, which I had 3 replacements, and 3 different date codes, and EVEN 1 different SKU listed under the battery).

    yeah I just looked under my battery its 11.11 but when I registered, when I entered my MEID # when it verified it, right next to the box where I entered the MEID in parentheses was the build date which was 12/02/2011 :)

    Is the date code under the battery 12 11? Please confirm!!!!!

    EDIT: DAMN, you just confirmed 11 11 for a 12/11, UGH, this might explain some of the madness in the other samsung forums on other websites.

    I wish I could pull my date again, never really thought about it when I registered the same day I bought it!

    Ok, using the original computer I registered from, it works. The other computer I logged in and then entered the IMEI, and it wasn't working.

    yay: Manufactured: 11/23/2011 :D:D

    It let me see the date again after I registered. Just put your IMEI in the box and click anywhere on the screen. The date shows up right next to the box with the IMEI

    Did you see my followup? I logged in on another computer (old work lappy) and it didn't show the date next to the box after entering the IMEI.

    I'll try again tomorrow, I've got a 6 year old laptop at work that's slow and has some issues with java. Or it could have been their site at the time, I'm thinking it's my old corp laptop that should get replaced sometime this month, yay!

    Blame it on the old corp laptop, yeah!!!!!

    I've actually got a pic loaded in picassa of under the battery, just need to remove my imei before I post it at some point.... dont' know if you can black out with their tools.

    I missed where it said the date right below the IMEI you entered the first time. I just clicked on "register your device again", chose mobile, and entered the IMEI, clicked to the side and it showed the date right away.

    Got mine launch day. Manufactured 11/21/2011
