imei sticker missing

Hi my imei sticker was peeled off my nokia n95 by my nephew from under the battery a few months ago and the other day my screen light stopped working, I brought it to a repair agent and the girl at reception said without this sticker the warranty was void, now I checked my wife's n95 and read the sticker and it does not mention that removing this sticker would invalidate the warranty,

so my question is this, am I still entitled to an under warranty repair or does this sticker have to be attached to the phone for the entire life of my phone!!!


please help,


any suggestion would be much appreciated.

The sticker must always be attached and is very hard to remove.  Under normal usage it cannot even curl or peel at the corners.  Why on earth would you let a child play inside your phone???


It tells you in the warranty terms (in the user guide) that removing the IMEI code (which is on that label) will void your warranty.


It also says it on the link below (section 5 of "what is not covered"):


You are not entitled to a warranty based repair. Perhaps the child's parents may be willing to pay for an unofficial shop to have a go at fixing the phone?
