Hi,

If you backed up your EFS partition some how, you can restore it.

If not, you can try flashing the stock rom. This thread should help with that...

If that doesn't restore it, I'm afraid sending it in for repair is your only option.

Good luck!

You can't just put them back. You can research about ways to try... But we steer clear of such discussions usually on XDA... Tampering with imei is not legal in most areas, and such methods are used for illegal activities usually.

Again, flashing stock may help. Or you may need a service center to repair it.

Your are welcome to try asking here if you wish....
