How To Change IMEI Number of Android –

  1. Can i unlock my iphone 4 ( iOS 6.1.3 bb 04.12.05 ) using this method ?
    after my knowledge the carriers block the IMEI in they network so it wont work on any other networks ( but i could be wrong )
    Please answer

  2. It became impossible to change the IMEI on Nokia DCT4 phone a very long time ago.
    It is quite disturbing if it is possible to do this on an iPhone in 2014.
    I wonder how many iPhones would sell if the IMEI could not be changed.
    Maybe the idiot that made this mistake should compensate the insurance companies since most of mobile phones are made by far east companies anyway!

  5. guys dont bother, this is no easy solution better off phoning up the carrier if you know who it is and who the owner was spoofing your way or if you have good programming skills its possible to clone XD

  6. Hi I have a iphone 5 running ios 8.2,i run iTunes in the background I tried to change the imei number to see if it would work but it does not detect my iphone please help.

  7. i have an iphon 5s ios 7.1.1 , please can you tell me how to change the imei or unlock it becouse it a lost icloud …… thanks

  8. For those who are cursing apple, the software was made to work with iphone 1 it is not possible to change iphone IMEI on iphones since then..

  9. If ANY of you idiots I’d any research or something simple like using google you’ll find that Ziphone only worked on the iPhone 1 & 2

    Since none of you bothered let me answer ALL your questions…

    1) will it work on iPhone 4? – NO
    2) will it work on iPhone 5c? NO
    3) will it unlock my iPhone? NO
    4) will it work on my iPhone 4S? NO
    5) will it work on my iPhone 5s? NO

    Again if you have any difficulty in understanding any of this there is no hope for you.

    The ONLY method to date to change the IMEI on iPhone 3/4 is to remove the baseband IC & CPU from the logic board of a donor iPhone and replace the blocked IMEI baseband IC in your phone.

    This is tried and tested and can only be done with professional equipment.
    If you think you can use a soldering iron to do this, think again and jog on.

    Finally, if anyone has any questions again regarding changing the IMEI on anything other than iPhone 1/2 with this software the answer is still NO.

    Hope you all learned something from this!

    1. Dev_Ops,
      You referring to people as idiots makes you a complete idiot. Just because your little mind does not allow you to comprehend, know that many people land on this site due to research.

    1. No its not dumbass, i cant use the phone that i paid 650 bucks back in my country since it has to be registered etc etc so my question is AM I A THIEF!!!!

    2. Actually florian fuckface did you no if people get your imei they can’t track your phone and use your phone as a way to be invasive ie x partners with vandeters or anyone maybe cheating on your wife and it gets you caught or even on the run from the police how you gunna have a phone when they can track you imei is a invasion of personal space and Apple should be jailed for this imagine if someone put a hit on someone they couldn’t ever escape imagine someone got in witness protection being like you a neighbourhood watch member criminals would use the imei and they’d be found. All you need is to start with someone’s phone number and never jailbreak a phone I had and then radio pak file was on the iPhone its a spy bubble program but if someone imei your phone they could do it without jailbreak. Technology is used by criminals and straight people like you end up getting ie credit card on your iPhone they imei spy bubble bang your cards maxed out so think again cocksucker people may want to change it for a reason of privacy not as stolen these days phones are cheap plans are cheap no ones stealing them and your privacy is being destroyed look up SPY BUBBLE. You’ll see how invasive things can be. Because of Apple cyber criminals are thriving and normal citizens credit cards are being maxed out my mums card got done $10,000 Apple are scum

  10. Use atlantatechnicians.com for bad iphone imei if you want to unblock your blacklisted iphone. I just got my 5s and 6 plus back from them and it works with tmobile who blocked it in the first place.
