How to change your Android IMEI to that of a Blackberry

IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity, it is mostly a 15 digit unique number used to identify mobile devices such as phones, modems etc.

The essence of changing your Android IMEI to that of a blackberry is to disguise your Android as Blackberry device so you can enjoy certain benefits associated with Blackberry devices down here, like cheap Blackberry Internet Subscriptions (BIS).

How to change your Android IMEI to that of a Blackberry
You all know by now that BIS data is cheap over here and the major network providers here now offer 3GB BIS data for only N1000. Now if you succeed in changing your Android IMEI to that of a BB, you will be able to enjoy the cheap BIS data too on your android device.

*Though for now, it works only with Glo BIS*

Many webmasters out there have written about this changing of Android IMEI tutorial but in very obscure manners that have left readers still struggling to change their Android IMEI to that of BB.

Now we decided to take the bull by the horn to simply the entire procedure for you in such a manner that even a new born baby can follow. But before we kick-start the whole procedure, we want to you know these first;

Must read: How to know if you phone is an MTK device

Changing of IMEI of your device is illegal in some country and doing so voids the warranty that might come with such a device…but wait first and hear this! Yes the whole process is easily reversible and you can gain back your warranty in disguise by just reverting or restoring your original IMEI after the change, if you so wish.

Again on this process that we are about to take you through on, you do not need to root your android device, but if by any means, your device suddenly request for root access for you to make use of one of the tools that we will be referring you to, then do not hesitate to safely root your android device.

It’s time to now take you through the original and comprehensive method of changing your Android device IMEI to that of a Blackberry sequentially;

Recommended: How to become MTN SME data reseller

= => You need a Blackberry IMEI, simply get one for yourself here

= => You need to access the Engineer Mode of your Android device, to do that just dial any of these codes with your device *#*#3646633#*#* or *#7465625# If none of the codes works for your device, then download Android MobileUncle app here and install it on your device to access the Engineer Mode.

= => Dialing any of those codes above will take you straight to the Engineer Mode of your android device, but if it did not work and you want to now use the MobileUncle app, which you downloaded above to get to the Engineer Mode, just launch the MobileUncle app then select Engineer Mode>>Engineer Mode (MTK).

= => Now on your Engineer Mode, which you were able to access by any of the methods above, the first menu option there is the Telophony, Just navigate to the second menu option Connectivity by the right

= => On the Connectivity options, go down and choose CDS Information>>Radio Information>>Phone2 and you should now see the “AT+” command line without the quotation. Note here that the Phone2 you chose above signifies that you are changing the IMEI of your SIM2

= =>Now just add this command EGMR=1,10,”Your 15 digit BB IMEI” to the AT+ line to have something like this AT+EGMR=1,10,”357490978658998” and then press the SEND AT COMMAND button. You will now get a successful command sent message, just press done and reboot your phone, then use *#06# to confirm that your IMEI has changed.


Note from the command line above, if you press the SEND AT COMMAND button after inputting on the command line as indicated and you get an error message, then rewrite the command line with a space in between AT and +EGMR i.e. AT(space)+EGMR=1,10,”Your 15 digit BB IMEI” so it will now look like this AT +EGMR=1,10,”Your 15 digit BB IMEI” and always remember to include the double opening and closing quotations on the IMEI part of the command line only as indicated.

Again as mentioned above, it was the Phone2(SIM2) IMEI that was changed, so if you want to change the IMEI of your SIM1, when you get to the Radio Information as prescribed above, instead of choosing the Phone2 option, now choose the Phone1 and the AT+ command line should now be AT +EGMR=1,7”Your 15 digit BB IMEI” against AT +EGMR=1,10,”Your 15 digit BB IMEI” which was for Phone2(SIM2). Complete the process like before.

  1. nice post very helpful info thanks alot but when eventually u want to reverse it how can it be done.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You have two easy methods of reversal. Before changing the IMEI, when you get to the Engineer Mode, you will see Backup/restore option, so you just click on it to backup your IMEI first before you go ahead to change your IMEI.

      Now if you want to reverse to your original IMEI, you go back to your Engineer Mode and still click on the Backup/restore, and it will restore your original IMEI to your phone.

      The second option is just to follow the exact steps above that you used to change your IMEI to that of BB, you can change it back to that of your original Android IMEI in this case.

      Even if you failed to backup or copy out your Android IMEI somewhere, you can always find it on the back of your phone when you remove the battery or on the original pack (carton) of your phone, so you can copy it from there and use it for this method of reversal.

      Do have a great weekend ahead and thank you for stopping by.

    1. The subscription code for the glo is that you have to send the keyword COMONTH to 777. Then to check your bundle balance at any time use this code *777*0# or you send the keyword STATUS to 777

    1. Hi Grace,

      Multiple questions will get multiple answers, so are you ready?

      First of all since you have succeeded in deleting your Play Store, just look for a friend or somebody around you to flash share or Bluetooth Google Play Store to you from his/her device. I would have said that you should factory reset your device to restore your Play Store, but doing it that way, you will stand the risk of losing your other apps and files.

      Then you said you have 3GB left but it is showing insufficient memory right?...Ok have you root your phone? If not, rooting will help you recover some memory back.

      Again, I believe that the 3GB free that you are seeing is not the installation memory, cos android memory are normally divided into two then coupled with the SD card memory making them 3.

      The installation memory is most probably what is showing you full, then the 3GB free memory I believe should be the normal phone memory for transfer of files and uninstalled app, here you cannot install app to this memory.

      So what you should do in that respect is to root your device, then move some installed app to your SD card to free up space and finally don't get frustrated.

      Do have a great day ahead
