How To Change Imei Number Of All Tecno Devices Without Rooting

In this tutorial I made use of the tecno M3 device, the process changing the imei without rooting was done in less than 5minutes. Let’s go straight to the requirements and steps involved

  • Firstly, you need to download Mtk Engineering mode app, you can download it from play store Here or send it via xender or flashare to your device. Also download blackberry imei generator on play store Here.

NOTE: The mtk engineering mode app helps those devices that didn’t work with dialing of such codes like:*#*#3646633#*#*. Some device manufacturer disable those codes from enabling the mtk device settings. The main purpose of the mtk engineering mode app is to enable you access the mtk settings of your device so you can tweak and change the imei number. You don’t need root access to do this.

  • Launch the mtk engineering mode app, click on mtk settings


  • On the connectivity menu, click on “Cds information” scroll down and click on “Radio information”,

  • Now you can choose either you want to change the imei of the sim1 or sim2 which is phone 1 and phone 2.


  • Select phone 1 if you want to change the imei number of the sim1 or select phone 2 if you want to change the imei number of the sim2.
  • Now we changing the IMEI of SIM 1, just enter AT +EGMR=1,7,”NEW IMEI” For example AT +EGMR=1,7,”523470787017340″
  • Now you input the bb imei you generated using the bb imei generator app.
  • You get this notification ‘AT Command sent‘  when its successful
  • Restart your device
  • Launch the mtk engineering mode and check the imei of the phone 1 you changed, you would see the new blackberry imei number.


  • Check your imei number by dialing *#06#. To see if really your phone 1 Imei number has changed


Now you can see i have successfully changed the imei number for sim1 to a blackberry imei without rooting the device.
