With this tutorial you can kiss buying data plans goodbye, truth be told I haven’t bought a single data plan for months now and I have never for once lacked Data(megabytes).
How? You may ask, By tweaking my imei!!
By tweaking, I mean changing my imei number. By changing your imei number you are able to enjoy Unlimited data opportunities.
Let me explain this process with an example.
In Nigeria, when you purchase an Infinix Hot Note you are entitled to 2015MB from Mtn, If you don’t want to buy the device but you also want to enjoy the 2015mb, all you have to do is change the IMEI Number of your phone to that of an Infinix Hot Note and then you Send the assigned command and you will get the 2015MB.
Let me explain how this is possible;
IMEI means International Mobile-Station Equipment Identity.
Every mobile phone and modem have a unique 15-digit Imei Number, It’s just like finger prints of a phone. No two phones have the same Imei Number, but phones of the same brand usually having the same starting sequence.
E.g – All Infinix hot note imei start with 358429063 that is what I call the identification number. So when you change your imei number to something like “3584290630360721” and send the command. When Mtn or any other telecom company which we plan to trick sees the identification number which is “358429063” they assume you use a hot not and you are given your data.
Now I believe you understand how Imei works, So let’s head on to the process of changing your imei number
How To Change Imei Number
To do this we need to install two apps.
• Download Imei analyzer.apk
• Download MTK engineering mode
First we start with the imei analyser.
The imei is a very delicate number so you can’t just randomly generate numbers and tweak ’em you have to first analyse it.
This is how we do that;
Let me use the infinix hot note example again.
First we get the identifying number of the phone we want to change to.
“358429063” the first nine digits of an imei number are the legit numbers the rest can be tweaked but do not change the first nine digits.
After getting the first nine, you randomly add any 5 numbers.
So we have 14 digits now. “35842906312345” remaining one more number.
This last number is called the “check digit” so it cannot be randomly added.
If you do, you’ll end up having a bogus imei number that doesn’t work.
This is where the Imei Analyser comes to play.
Now open your Imei Analyser and input the 14 numbers we have gotten into the box provided. And click analyse.
It will analyze it and give you the complete imei number including the check digit.
Congratulations, you have finally changed your IMEI. if there is any thing you don’t get, feel free to comment below. Our next tutorial will be on how to get the benefit of tweaking via MTN. Subsequently, we will be posting on how to get the benefit for other networks.
