  18. I carefully followed all the steps and I was able check for my new IMEI number it displayed well. The problem now is the phone is not browsing under that sim.

    • 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.
