Change IMEI number to obtain tablet data plan?

by RobertHannah89   Last Updated February 11, 2019 03:11 AM

It looks like T-Mobile offers very cheap data-only plans, but these are only available for tablets. I have read that this is enforced by tracking your IMEI. I was wondering: Is it possible to change your phone's IMEI to a tablet's IMEI, to trick T-Mobile, so that you can get a data-only plan. Nobody really needs talk and text if they have data. Thanks!

This would undoubtedly be a violation of T-Mobile's terms of service. To do so, though, you would need to create a custom ROM and modify the ro.serialno system property. Alternatively you could try to modify Build.java and pass in a different value to Build.SERIAL. It's unclear whether that's how T-Mobile is retrieving the IMEI number though.
