Mike Rey: sorry for the dumb question, but after you back it up and save the file, you say "when you're ready to put it back on your phone". is that the step that you take if you lose your IMEI or is that still part of the back up process?
Sergio DeLafe: Thanks for the video! I commented that I restored my IMEI with QPST another tutorial but fails to find files in the EFS ... and had no way to make a backup of my IMEI. Now with your tutorial I support this file needed! I'm very grateful!

Hana Alam: unforunately im not the first owner,the first owner did not pay the bill and he sold it to me.now he refuese to take the return and refund my money on ebay.tried everyway but nothing is working..he scammed me..Thanks so much Mr.Geek for your advise..God Bless you..!!
Dustin Hawkes: If T-mobile blocked your IMEI, then you really can't do anything except pay our bill. There are ways to replace your IMEI with a different, one, but you have to have the right equipment to program the chip on the phone. This video only shows how to restore the IMEI to the software side of your phone that matches the hardware side.
Hana Alam: my Phone IMEI is blocked by T-mobile for non-payment.Can this resolve my issue??As i have mentioned i did try it backing up but its not working,i dont have a diff computer to try.Do we have to generate the IMEI every time we do ,or with the same we can try as many times as we want until we succeed??please answer these question Mr.Geek..will def give donation if i pass in it..Thank you....fr the quick response ..
Dustin Hawkes: Try it on another computer and make sure the IMEI number is the same one found under your battery. If you are trying to use a different IMEI, it will not work.
Hana Alam: I tried it successfully done but when i try to remove the USB cord ,it asks if you want to reset the phone,as the changes have been applied.When i click yes,it says ERROR PHONE DOES NOT RESPOND..what should i do please guide me through..
Hana Alam: Hi There,I did follow each and every step you have instructed..Everything went as you did.At the end i got it done successfully.But yet my phones IMEI is blocked..T-mobile service is still not working on the phone..WHat should be done??PLease help me..
