Step 3

Open engineering mode » Click on  Engineer Mode (MTK) » Swipe left to Connectivity » click on CDS Information » Radio Information.

Step 4

Click on phone 1 if you want to change your sim 1 or choose Phone 2 to change sim 2 IMEI, follow this guide:

  • For Phone 1: “AT+ EGMR=1,7,”YOUR NEW IMEI NO” (make sure you add a space in between AT+ & EGMR)
  • For Phone 2: “AT+ EGMR=1,10,”YOUR NEW IMEI NO” (make sure you add a space in between AT+ & EGMR)

    • Please use MTK Engineering Mode to change your IMEI on Infinix note 3. If that didn’t work, I advise you check if your recovery mode is still present. Try to boot to recovery mode (volume up+power button) to be sure it hasn’t vanished. That can sometimes be the problem. Do these things and get back to me as quick as possible.

      • Yes I have the IMEI number of that phone .. But, when I open the phone, It tells me that the IMEI number isn’t correct as the phone don’t recognize the IMEI number ! .. also when I restart the mobile to open the recovery mode OR factory mode, It tells me that (rf calibiration test fail , pls reset rf) .. and I don’t know what that means !! … Please if you have any information about this subject, tell me … Thank you very much.
