I dont think is Good To Change Your Phone's IMEI Number! Why?


IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity Number and it's a 15 digit unique identification number used in mobile phones, USB modems and MiFis. In fact, all network dependent devices has a unique IMEI number. In other words, an IMEI number is allocated to each wireless radio in a device, that's why you see two IMEI numbers on a dual SIM mobile phone. The number identifies each device and can be used to trace it.
The IMEI number is very useful and important to a network dependent device that it can be used to trace the device and it's owner. But is there any any advantage or benefits you get when you change your phone imei? Is it good to change your phone imei? This and other important information are discussed in this post.
HOW TO FIND YOUR PHONE'S IMEI NUMBER
The IMEI number of a phone or any device is usually located inside the back cover. Alternatively, you can see your phone IMEI number by simply dialing * #06# and the number will be displayed on the screen.

CHANGING THE IMEI NUMBER OF YOUR PHONE
Changing IMEI number is relatively easy if you are using phones with MediaTek processor. There is a tutorial on how to change imei of MTK devices . You  check the post if you need to learn. However, to change imei of non mtk devices like Samsung and LG phones can be very daunting although there is also a way to change imei of non mtk devices .

I DONT THINK IS GOOD TO CHANGE YOUR PHONE IMEI NUMBER? IS THERE ANY BENEFITS?
Yes there are benefits you get when you change your phone imei numbers but it is not legally good to change it.

The main advantage is allowing you enjoy Blackberry data plans on your Android devices. You Know BB plans are better than Android plans as they have more data allocations and are cheaper. First we started with Glo BIS on Android but it is now blocked. The trending one now is Airtel 3GB for N1000 BB Plan on Android .

Another benefit of changing imei is it allows you enjoy some of the promotional bonuses attached to new phones. All you need is to just get the imei number of the new phone and tweak on your old phone, Henceforth all the free data and airtime will be coming to your old phone as well.

But remember you are totally responsible for changing your phone imei number as this article is just for educational purposes and not in anyway geared towards encouraging imei changing. So you are on your own don't if you spoil your phone.

Moreover, in some cases, when the imei isn't changed properly, it can brick the phone . Also changing of phone's imei number completely voids the warranty. Don't put the any illegal comment if you spoil the phone ( At you own Risk)
