Here is the simple answer for you....

Look on the back of your phone and compare that to you box and in your General tab inside the phone. If the IMEI in your General/About/Serial# does not match the outside of your phone, you need to use ZiPhone to make it match you phone, not the box. If you bought it new, the serial# on the back of your phone should match the box anyways.

Note; intentionally altering your IMEI is a Federal Crime punishable up to 5 years in prison. No matter what the box says, make sure the serial# on the back of the phone matches your General/About/Serial#.
