Hi guys, good afternoon.
I am new in this forum. Sry if am i postin in wrong area.
i Need to change my iphone´s IMEI, let me tell why:
I am from Brazil, and here we have a service called "portabilidade", i dont know if it exists in other countries. (portabilidade = change the carrier when u want and keep the same number).
I was user from CLARO for 5 years and i change to TIM 10 days ago.
so TIM offers me a 3G plan for 6 months, unlimited download if i bougth one of 3G cell phones (there was 6 or 7 differents models). And it was cheapest then i pay the additional 3G plan.
So, i bough a Samsung Scrapy Touch, i think... but... i was using my sim into my iPhone 3Gs (official unlock / Jailbreaked / newbootloader / ios 4.1).
That was the problem: My 3G plan only works in the cellphone that i bought (the samsung one) and calling for the carrier, they tells me: "Your 3G plan will only works on the phone what u bought because it is locked with your IMEI".
So i am asking:
Is there some thing to do, like a changing my iPhone IMEI w/ my Samsung IMEI ?
Is there some app, that "fakes" my IMEI?
the ziphone do this, but i dont know if it works into 3Gs iphones or only in First Generation iphones.
Changing IMEI is illegal in most countries - we don't allow discussion of this on this forum (any illegal activities are not allowed on this forum).

ziphone caused serious problems on some iPhones and was never recommended. It simply does not work at all on 3G or newer iPhones.
This is your only warning. Please don't ask about this again.
