No EFS backup = take it to a Samsung service centre or local mobile repair shop. Nothing anyone here can do to help you.

Edit - Try flashing a bunch of stock roms & pray it's only a temporary thing (don't get your hopes up though).
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !
Failure to search is the leading cause of male impotence on XDA
If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?

If u have EFS backup, u can try the steps here -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=17587351

else

Get an app named 'srs-samsung-unlock' from the samsung site.. log in using their test account and u can use it to get ur imei back...! I went thru the process myself..! u can find the instuctions in the site about how to repair ur imei.. u cant unlock without payment but u can repair ur imei.. U have to b on rooted ICS or rooted GB to use it. Wil exit wit an error if on JB as it has a bug. Good luck...

Tried SRS unlock method and imei repair but needs 30euro before it attempts it, bit of a rip off, wont work with test account, or am I missing something.

This only option??

i tried with the
username: test
password: srscom
and it worked like a charm for me.. managed to repair ma friends IMEI that way.. i got this test account in one of the samsung sites itself.. dunno where exactly unfortunately.. Search n u wil find many on google that help.. cant unlock but allows repair.. Be in ICS or below though.. or it wil ruin ur EFS more..
i searched for a week n discovered this account.

Try in HERE for another solution that may help.

Ther were certain users who can help u for a fee though..

One way or another you're paying for a fix.

Ya but only if u r unlucky with the login IDs... I fixed it without payin a penny.. Like i said, used those userID n password n it worked.. Besides, u get a lot o IDs if u search that have the required amount of points for the fixing..
The phone i restored was a product not from my country and so the service center also refused its fixing.. had to do it myself n with that useriD, voila..!

Did you manage to get it sorted ??? I had a blank IMEI and baseband unknown. I used SiiRepair app from google play and it worked first time !! I then unlocked it with GalaxyS Unlock app and again that worked a treat !!! its by helioz

Back up youe efs though if you already havnt.

I didnt and when i did a software update it went back to imei blank ???? Im still having a nightmare with it now nothing seems to work !!!!

hope this helps
