Nope. Nothing can do this. Deal with your problem, as it is illegal.

I really don't care if you care. We won't be helping you with anything illegal.

I presume this is the stolen phone you posted about last month?

It is transmitted by air and not pigs in any way, shape, or form.

Having said that, the OP does not deserve any help, and it is against the forum rules to assist him, even if it were possible.

Time to report this user, honestly why the hell do you think we would help you do something illegal.

I'm not sure "Go breathe air and get swine flu" has quite the same ring to it though.

Although it began with pigs.

Way to be literal.

Yes, but the therad starter may find the thought of rubbing noses with a sniffling snotty pig snout quite appealing.

And realy if it was my phone he had got hold of illegally, then i'd whish he had got swine flu, bird flu and SARS all at once.

My friend changes serial numbers all the time. Go to a Apple store, make a appointment with a genius first and say you need to change the serial number of the iPhone. They will plug it to their pc and in mean time take name, address and email. Your iPhone should be restored to factory settings and with a new serial number. Also this will cost some time and money to do this.
If you need more help, Let me know!

No... this doesn't happen. You change serial numbers by getting a new iPhone. This is the only way. The serial number is never different than the physical number on the back of the phone or the box.
