    Re: IMEI

    like i posted previously, damaged phone during an eeprom write when saving
    an SMS message....happens heaps!

    when rebuilding a flash you need to reprogram the IMEI if you flash using a
    virgin EEPROM

    the virgin EEPROM flash writes out the IMEI into garbage and in order to get
    the phone to work again,

    the orginal IMEI must be inputted...not a different one...the original one!

    then update FAID and presto...phone fixed....

    end of story...

    Re: IMEI

    I have had to try get a new IMEI number in my phone.

    I got fed up with my phone company and thier bad service,so I 'sold' my
    phone and claimed the insurance and got another one.

    only prob, the IMEI was rejected by my friend who bough the phone off me.

    I was trying to use the old IMEI no.` off an ericsson that died on my
    several months prior to this.

    after much fiddling about, it got done, works fine now.

    I have sinced changed phone co. and cannot remember what s/ware I used,
    deleted it during a re-format and it was not needed so it didn't get
    ghosted..........

    I tell you what though, it's a hell of a lot easier to buy a new phone. I
    was just trying to get what I thought was "my money's worth" outta the ph
    co.

    Re: IMEI

    Unfortunately if somebody has sold their phone and then claimed on the
    insurance, then we all know they are a thief !
    We might exclaim 'Oh no, they're a thief '.
    We might also exclaim 'One more theft to help push the insurance premiums
    up'.
    So at the end of the day, when all is said and done, it will be the honest
    users who end up paying for the thief's new phone via our insurance
    premiums.
    I wonder if the police (an organisation paid for by honest people to help
    protect them from theft) would be interested ?

    Doubt it. This thread is boring me to ****, that's for sure. Suspect the
    police have got better things to do with taxpayer resources.

    If you have insufficient interest in the subject of a theft which will
    ultimately cost you and I money, then why bother reading it - and why on
    earth bother replying at all ?
    It appears that you find using the lavatory interesting, so do that instead.

    instead.

    Oof! With rapier wit of that calibur to contend with, I'm clearly out of my
    depth on this one. But what the hell, I'll give it a go...

    I bothered reading the thread because I follow this ng and have a casual
    interest in most mobile-related topics.

    As for replying, well it's just too easy to wind up the moralists on here to
    resist it when people start barking on about police and 5 year prison terms
    every time someone asks a perfectly reasonable question about IMEIs. FFS,
    if you don't know or can't/won't help then don't but is there really any
    need to embark on a moral crusade?

    Get yourself a clue: people will reprogram IMEIs on older (often stolen)
    handsets and these handsets will be reused. The perpetrators will very
    seldom be caught due to the incredibly simple nature of the operation and
    the fact it can be done by pretty much anyone, anywhere. Rest safe in the
    knowledge that at least those phones are being used by someone and not just
    rusting away... hey - there's always an upside and this time it's found in
    the environmental benefits of extended phone lifetimes.

    Nokia and the other handset manufacturers are now well aware of the problem
    and have already made it much harder / imposssible to change IMEI on newer
    handsets, so this crime will become less common over the next few years.
