Hmm interesting that as I'd have thought that IMEI and serial numbers could not be transferred. 

Samsung phones have the IMEI and other identification data stored in the EFS partition, so with appropriate tools, the service centre can modify these after mainboard replacement etc. 

This seems to vary from one manufacturer to another though.

I've noticed since this update background operations seem to be much more reliable.

I had a OS software update showing on the home screen of my S7 Edge last night, I went to install it and nothing!

I think this could be a sign that a new OS update is on the way as I've seen this issue previously a short while before a new OS is released. :)

Whoo that will be good news if it is. It feels like ages since we had an update through!
