    • 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.
