    Hello people,

    First, in case you wonder why would I want to change my iPhone's IMEI number, let me explain the situation; so you won't get the wrong idea :)

    A good friend of mine who lives in the US came to visit me and stayed for a few months. He registered his iPhone to the officials when he was here, so it was a legal to use that phone in my country, when he was here. Then he went back to US; after a year, he decided to give his iPhone 2G to me as a present, because he bought a 3GS. But when I received the phone, I couldn't use it because it says IMEI is blocked (even I unlocked it & did a jailbreak).

    I also have a phone of another brand, which is about to go to trash because it has too much problems (and the warranty is already finished). So because of this, I want to use my old phone's IMEI number on this iPhone.

    The question is, how can I change the IMEI # on my iPhone?

    Tech specs:
    iPhone 2G 8GB
    Firmware = 3.1.2
    Model = MA712LL
    4.6 Bootloader.

    Thanks in advance, for your help.

    what kind is the other phone? Don't throw it away, it may be fixable yet.

    Also this should be in the help section.

    Default Regarding changing of iPhone IMEI number

    As you asked about changing of iphone's IMEI number but it's not possible. IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity which is a unique identifier fro every iPhone and thus cannot be changed. But yes you can unlock it in order to use any network and for this iphone unlock software would be the best possible option that works to unlock imei iphone easily.

    I don't know what problems you have with your other iPhone but if you want to have the other IMEI you could switch the motherboards...
