Hello and thank you for clicking into my topic.
i just bought a used Samsung Galaxy note II online and when i got it and put in my sim, i noticed that there was no service.
i can go WIFI and use apps and stuff but i cannot call or update firmware.
so i tried to reformat it using the system recovery boot.
and still no changes... i did some research in the phone and noticed i have no IMEI and there is absolutely no service in the phone.
tried to take of the battery to see the imei on the phone but the previous owner has taken the sticker off.
i've tried to contact the previous owner but he has deleted his account on the site i bought it from.
is there something i can do.. if i wanted a multimedia pad i would've bought a ipad
please i hope there is some kind and wise soul out there that has a solution on fixing my new phone.
thank you very much!

i have some screenshots but i apperently need to post 10 posts before i can attach them.
pm me i will send them to you.
*UPDATE
added pictures in XDA album.

Which country are you in?You can try flashing official 4.4.2 stock firmware of your region,if it's not available for your country then I recommend NE1 France base from here extract the zip file you'll get a tar.md5 file put your phone into download mode (volume down+home+power) connect it to pc odin v 3.09.Wait for ID port to turn blue with ID COM id shown once successful usb connection established between phone and odin ,check the ap/pda tab in odin and select the above tar.md5 stock rom file you downloaded.Make sure only auto reboot and reset time are checked in ODIN and nothing else.Hit start and sit back and let odin do it's thing.
