I want to know is it possible to alter IMEI number of mobile?
I have lost my Samsung Galaxy Note and is not traceable at all by police through IMEI.
Any tips? Can this be changed?
yes it is possible but it is not permitted by government as leagal stuff
i don't think you can change it.each and every IMEI number are unique and that can be only done by your phone manfacture.....................
NO not at all. Its ILLEGAL
Yes it is illegal but very much possible. There are software downloads that allow you to change the IMEI programmed into the firmware of newer phones.
On older phones you could even change it using some standard codes. For example on older Samsung phones you could perform a full EEPROM reset by entering: *2767*3855#
Entering this code will not only fully reset the device but change the IMEI to " 447967-89-400044-0"
Sorry, but from now on, do keep a mobile tracker application in your new phone, which is usually a part of many anti-virus so that you can still track it and can securely erase your valuable data.
Unfortunately, yes. It is possible to do so. Also, trackimei might not do much help in your case as the above reason.
IMEI is issued in production and it's not possible to change the number.
Like the others said it can be changed! But, if it would be a way to find your phone, there could be a possibility to take it back! I don't know if your phone has it's IMEI printed on the inside (the part where you remove your battery), but you can get it back if it has it. Also, some models has it printed with a QR Code! (My phone has a QR Code... )
As Douglas said, it is possible that someone has changed the IMEI number.
While it is intended to be a unique identification number for each phone (in the world) this number is only programmed into the phone and can be changed with the right tools.
I don't think you can change the IMEI since it's the hardware identification number of any mobile device.
it,s not possible...............
it,s not possible.......
Unfortunately YES...and I am afraid that what has happened to your lost phone. There is now lot of tools that can change original IMEI and program a new one. But off course it's completetely illegal.
yes it is possible from authorized dealers.
I don't think it can be done.
yes it is
I dont't think it is possible to do it. But if you have more technical skill maybe you can do it. Because there are many great hacker in the world, someone must have a good skill to do it.
