    Default How Do I FAKE IMEI
    Hi
    I bought a second hand iphone, it was fine and working but it does not work on any UK carriers as it has been barred BUT I want to fake the IMIE. Is there any program on CYDIA or any other way to do this.

    Unfortunately it sounds like you bought a stolen phone. If the person you bought it from was in fact the original (legitimate) owner, then you would have to have them contact the carrier to have it unbarred.

    yes I think after I bought it they must do a claim from insurance. so there is no program to fake the imei, I thought everything can be done from cydia. BUT How do I or where do I contact to prove a receipt that I bought it to unbar

    Your out of luck.

    Its illegal to change your IMEI and you probably bought it from a person who stole the phone and wont be able to unban it from ATT. Only shot is unlocking it and selling it to someone on TMO

    It cant be unlocked the only thing you can do is send it abroad as it can be used there , if you change the imei number you can face prison in the uk for up to 5 years :0

    I think all the UK carriers share a stolen IMEI database, but I may be wrong.
