    Default Galaxy S4: Invalid imei

    I just did a Factory Reset in my Samsung Galaxy S4 ( 4.2.2 )
    Then I realized that the IMEI became invalid or unknown.
    It says Invalid IMEI on the notification bar and Unknown in the IMEI information.
    NEED HELP ASAP TY

    And this happened after a factory reset? Was this on a custom ROM?

    I am not sure honestly as I've never heard of that happening. I'd contact your carrier since you cannot legally modify you IMEI.

    I think the unusual nature of the problem is why there is no responses. I don't know how to revert the IMEI back, and resets should not affect it. Flashing ROMs doesn't affect it. I agree with Almeuit on taking it to your carrier, and see what they can do.
