How To Create And Restore An IMEI Number On Your Galaxy S3 Running Touchwiz (US Varients, Not I9000)




What do you think about this video?

Chris Jernigan: Love the video but keep getting hung up when I have to enter the commands on the dialpad. When I put them in nothing happens after I hit the last # so I hit the dial option and it goes nowhere.

TheCoolman231: When I hit generate it gives me a message saying it couldent find something

paul carter: funny how people get all morally correct with imei # changing, isn't it not LEGAL yet to even unlock your phone? that law is on the way to being changed but still not and that info is everywhere. pretty stupid argument to me. noone can even point me to the law that says it's illegal to change imei but they can all point me to the law that it's not allowed to unlock. how wack is that?

KiiNGJOSH: lame only for american phones

George Vazquez: Hi I lost my IMEI with a bad flash so I'm trying to restore it.

I havent been without texting and calling for several days and would like to restore it asap. Help would be greatly appreciated. Happy Thanksgiving

Hajnoczi Angyalka: Here is a piece of information about how to unlock AT&T, some of you probably know that AT&T had a unlocking server shut down, after the shut down, 80% of the unlocking sites are not able to unlock anymore, however, there is a site that I have been using for a long time to unlock my AT&T stuff, which is still legit, the site is attiphoneunlocking, you might want to take a look at the site if you have any trouble unlocking your phone

Erol Sipar: Do you know anyone who can edit QCN imei so I can put original and not illegal imei that is for the t-mobile for s4 i337m! Maybe someone from XDA forums, I really need to get in touch with experts oh boy it's stressful being a tech yet still a n00b on some projects to work on :(

Holey Ravioli: yes this is illegal if you use this for a stolen phone but im doing this because i lost my IMEI when i flashed cyanogenmod on my s3 AT&T version and cant make phone calls or text and i tried to flash my s3 with stock rom but my IMEI was still 0/00 and thanks this fixed my phone and i can make calls and text thnx very much

jay patel: is this also for verizon s3 i535 and it's on 4.3 verson

Kayansan Jeyasri: my note 2 lost imei and comes as NULL/NULL and unknown baseband. not reading sim at all. its from rogers. any help?

oscar dineroo: I did all your steps and got writing NV-item from file : done ans successfully , restart my phone, but when i open imei # to check if it changed.... guess what it did not, it stay the same, tried to change the last t to digits.... why not?

Uriel Oso: So this is only for Qualcomm phones? I have an old at&t Galaxy S2 with the Exynos chip. I messed up my IMEI from flashing a certain rom about a year ago and I still can't get it fixed. I learned my lesson with my S3 and S4 by backing up my EFS folder. But I'd still like to fix my S2 since it was my first smart phone so it means a lot to me.

Julio Cota: it worker very well..thanks for your help and yout tips....

Frank Youmbi: it tells me "phone does not accept spc. spc is not correct. help

Suzuki GSXRlover: This guide Qualcomm related stuff is only for the US and Canadian Galaxy S3 models; they have a COMPLETELY different chipset (Snapdragon S4 instead of Exynos Quad).I hope this helps for people who kept asking when they entered *#7284# Quadcomm Usb Settings doesn't appear. Hope i clear OP mind a little.

Spickard Crittendon: AT&T users, here is this great info for you yourself to learn about unlocking, for the folks that don't know that AT&T had some issue using their unlocking database, so they really shuted it down, following the power down, most of the unlocking internet sites are incapable of provide the same service as before, but, there is a website that I have now been applying for a long time to unlock my AT&T stuff, that is however legit, the site is attiphoneunlocking, it's no doubt one of the very trusted unlocking internet sites that also operates these days
