Default [Q] Unknown IMEI

So ive been running PA 3.99 RC2 for a while now and yesterday it prompt me to update. I flashed my recovery to CWM as i had heard that PA 4.0 was having problems with twrp. After updating by the PA OTA app i couldn't connect to the network. I looked and my IMEI was unknown. I reflashed 3.99 but it still shows IMEI as being unknown. are their any potential solutions?

Sometimes if you flash the factory image, which wipes the phone, it will restore your IMEI #. Developer wugfresh has a great utility for downloading and flashing the stock image if you are not familiar with the ODIN program. See this post....

If all else fails, MobileTech Videos in Texas has a mail in service that will restore your IMEI # for around $35. Do a search for their website for more info.
