Default Got my new phone from insurance but it looks different than other one?

Please Login to Remove!

After a long wait of almost two month my new phone arrived as brand new one but one problem...my old phone was a 9700 and this ones screen/desktop looks totally different and when I looked on google it looks like it's a 9900 one so why have they sent me this one or has the 9700 had an updated screen/desktop or what?

What do I do?

Go to Options > About and read the model number. While on the screen, read the OS version number too.

If you got a 9900 to replace the 9700 you should jump for joy!

Your old 9700 probably had OS 5 and this new 9700 might have OS 6.
