      1. Windows license label (COA)
      2. Information label
      3. IMEI barcode label
      4. Mac address label
      5. Vodafone label

      For some models, you also need to apply one or two FCC labels. Check the old base cover; if it has one or two FCC labels, find duplicates of them in the label kit and apply them to the new base cover.
