How to get back in original IMEI in HTC M8?

I think my IMEI has changed by seller. Now I want to get back into my real IMEI. What can I do? My Device is HTC M8. I have tried: I didn't do anything. I think it was caused by: I think Seller changed IMEI info..

You will need to compare the IMEI numbers on the device.

  1. 1
    Locate the first one by pressing the home button
    .
    Tap on the "Apps" icon. Tap on "Settings". In the "SYSTEM" section, tap on "About". Tap on "Phone identity". Alternatively, just dial *#06#.

    Turn the phone off
    .
    Eject the SIM tray. The IMEI number is engraved on the tray.

If the IMEI numbers are different, then someone has changed the IMEI (not necessarily the seller). The original IMEI is, most likely, on the SIM tray.

Again, if IMEI codes in the phone and on the SIM tray mismatch, no one guarantees that the SIM card tray has not been tampered with either. To inject the proper IMEI code, it is not recommended not to do it on your own with Minimal ADB and Fastboot Tool, as it can be against the law and may lead to the wrong IMEI again and more trouble with your phone. Instead, bring the phone to an authorized HTC service center or contact HTC at http://www.htc.com/us/support/ who will determine the real IMEI number and inject it into the device.
