General :: Phone Stuck In Roaming With Correct IMEI
May 19, 2014
I flashed my Verizon Note 2 (SCH-I605) to the SOKP Rom from a Jedi X Rom (v13 I believe). After the flash, I noticed my network was not working. Eventually I found out that the device was registering as a GT-7105. Not sure what went wrong, as the rom was flashed with no errors. I also ensured that my recovery was on the appropriate version (TWRP 18.104.22.168 in this case) and I also did a factory reset. To try and rectify the issue I wiped the phone and tried various other roms. In every one of those cases I found that the phone was constantly roaming. I had checked my network mode and tried switching between Global and LTE/CDMA which did nothing. Being completely out of options, I just installed to a stock rom through Odin (VRAMC3 4.1.2) and let it update via Wifi to 4.3 and still nothing. (I am well aware of the Knox security feature and will address this in a moment)
Here are the different ways I tried to diagnose the issue after this that led nowhere:
1. Made contact with a Tier-2 specialist from Verizon that tried various diagnostic methods and found that my phone was simply not registering on the Verizon network, or ANY other network for that matter.
2. I went to a Verizon store and got my SIM card replaced.
3. I even went to a repair shop to see if the phone possibly had a faulty connection.
I have already verified that the IMEI is correct based on the sticker behind the battery. The PRL is on 15310. The very last thing I tried was entering "getprop" inside a terminal. I'm taking a guess here, but I noticed my ril.serialnumber was all 0s. If I need to root my phone again to try something, I am more than willing to. My phone is out of warranty and not insured, I'm not really concerned about the Knox warranty trigger unless it will render my phone completely unusable.
My Hero has been stuck on roaming since Tuesday night and now has no EVDO service after a tech had me do a soft reset and update my profile.The Sprint store told me last night that they just received a bulliten about this and for some reason it only affects HTC heros on their network.I was given two different stories by techs over the phone and am really unhappy. It seems a bit odd that nobody has posted about it here.I live in Houston Texas.
Here's a question that comes from an unclear view of how things work : can a a phone be data roaming without being voice roaming? If so how can a begin data roaming event can be detected? This question came to me from the DDMS options , where one can have" data roaming " and "home voice".
I have a China copy of Samsung note its a I9220 with a android version of 4.1.9 athough looks like a copy of gingerbread.
Build number is Alps.ics.mp.v1 Google play reports phone as Alps I9220
My wife has done a reset on the phone, now the phone is showing invalid imei number on both sim cards.The phone has network connection but cannot make calls.The IMEI numbers are listed under the battery, how can i change the IMEI on the phone so i can make calls again?
I have got an LG Optimus Vu from Korea through DHL but the customs have seized it saying there is no IMEI number provided for the phone.
I managed to convince them to let me play with the phone and checked in Settings, Phone Identity , About screens and all i saw was a serial number. I could not find the IMEI number. Also it is not there on the box. The phone has a sealed battery and microSIM so it is not possible to check the inside also.
I am using droidlife's suggestion on how to root droid x 2.2 and when i copy the files to the correct folder and then hit doroot.bat all i get it "searching for device" the drivers are downloaded but when debugging is turned on it wants to download drivers for wb810.
Recently my telephone was stolen and the police need my IMEI number. I never bothered to write it down and don't have the original box, so I wondered whether the IMEI number is stored in ADB or in some other software, since I have done some development for Android.
IMEI of my t mobile htc one s was changed after facepalm s-off perhaps because of PJ4010000 zip . Now I am unlocked S-ON on t mobile stock rom . I need to change IMEI to original to get updates that I am not getting after imei change during s-off .
My sisters phone was having a sim card security error and after googling i came across this thread [URL] ....
I followed the proceeders written on page 3 and the error is gone but the imei number is gone too. So i was trying to restore it but i havent had luck yet. I have already searched and tried to restore it with tutty but haven't had any luck yet. The phone is not rooted.
1. why i got 0 (zero) on my IMEI ? (I can make and receive calls) 2. why my phone perform reset (No predefined times) - I think when is in effort - But not sure about it 3. How do I know the phone is not fake ? (I bought it two days ago)
After update my Optimus L3 got in a "No service" situation. The strange part is that i have signal and im able to access the internet using mobile network (wifi off). After a long research i fugered out that my IMEI was 0 (zero). I finded a lot of solutions to this problem but none of then was compatible with my device or brand.
Its possible to perform this in an Optimus L3? How can i access the Port Settings?

I have xtouch X1 with MT6589 SoC. have lost my IMEI while flashing a Rom i have tried many different methods but none has worked and in baseband version it says unknown and whenever i try to type in IMEI via engineering menu it says can't send AT command and i have flashed back to my stock rom via SP Flash Tools but even that didn't work, I have tried terminal emulator method MTK Droid tools method but none has worked even tried to replace the file of IMEI one but still same.
I bought recently my thl W8S, and I was experiencing some troubles with the battery charging (taking 10 hours) and my GPS connection.
So I decided to flash it via CWM. But I'm very new in the flashing and all this stuff. I tried a lot of things to get CWM , even thing I didn't know.
The problem of my IMEI came out atfer I installed this : [URL] ....
The recovery installer apk, I just click on it and when my phone rebooted, I didn't have any access to my SIM management, no more coverage of course.
I tried the *#06# and my 2 IMEI are just marked as "INVALID".
Since yesterday I tried few different operations to get if fixed but nothing is working.
I tried to use the engenering mode (menu CDS, Network information) and send the AT command with the IMEI but I got an error message : AT command is failed to send.
Then I tried to recreate the MP0B_001 file with some tools I downloaded. And I put it in the right folder (/data/nvram/md/NVRAM/NVD_IMEI/MP0B_001) instead of the old file. I reboot my phone, still the same trouble.
I can't find the stock rom to try to flash it with Odin ..
I have Galaxy Gio(Running on JellyBread). Is it possible to change IMEI no. Without changing hardware? If yes then how will it change my device(I mean will it cause some problems e.g network operator problems)
Im trying to make custom rom for GT-S7710 using stock XXAMB6. But after flashing with full wipe i got IMEI/Null and Baseband/Unknown. I put everything in System folder in ZIP, include cache.img. And i dont know where is my problem
recently bought a Note 3 based in a MTK6572 processor, but the signal doesn't work, I've tried many methods to solve it but no one has worked, I don't know what to do. Obviously this happens cause the IMEI is invalid.
I purchased a nexus5 off of some guy that was selling one in my local area. The phone was in the original box and I was pumped at getting one for a bit cheaper than they are on the play store. Although this last week it randomly could not connect to the network, so I called Telus (my Canadian provider) and after a half hour of troubleshooting they told me that the IMEI is blacklisted as a lost or stolen device? Is there anyway I can change the IMIE address?
I'm having the documented problem of no data connection, always on roaming, after flashing to CM 10.1. My prior rom was CleanRom 5.1, and I have several nandroid backups from various roms over the last few months. GS3 (d2vzw) with root and unlocked bootloader.
So the question is... What's the best way to restore IMEI info and get mobile data back?
There are a couple of steps I'm not sure of:
Option 1: Flash a nandroid recovery, backup IMEI using terminal emulator, and then crack-flash away
1. If I restore my phone to a previous backup, is the correct IMEI information included?
2. Also having a problem getting the MD5 sum's to match. Should I flash through ADB instead of clockworkmod? Or use Odin to get back to stock and then re-root? If correct IMEI included with flash back to stock?
3. Assuming I restore a nandroid, the plan was to use "reboot nvbackup" in terminal emulator to save IMEI info.
4. Flash back to CM 10.1.
Option 2: Use IMEI Generator and NV Reader/Writer:
1. Based on this thread: [URL]
2. Problem: The link to the generator tool in the OP is broken (404). I can get the converted IMEI number from an alternative program, but don't know how to format the text file correctly to use with NV Reader/Writer. Any standard format of a dummy IMEI text file?
This is a weird one! I'm with O2, so can't ask them for help as the Hero is not on their support list.
Everytime I'm in Germany and my friend tries to text me (using a Sony-Ericsson phone) vis the 3 network, she gets an error message saying that the text has failed. As a result, I can't receive any texts from her when abroad. This problem has only started since I started using the Hero.
Anybody else experienced this when roaming and being sent an sms from the 3 network?
I installed customROM works fine. then I reverted back to stockROM then IMEI is gone. I tried the Engineering mode thing, I tried multiple IMEI Writers non of them works for me. I always have this error "meta mode entry fail" for some reason I don't know what to do.
