Exclamation [Q] Upgraded CM and IMEI is now 0's

So I finally got around to updating my CM 10.1.3-d2vzw to CM 10.2 via the CM updater and now I am unable to use my phone to make/receive calls and the data drops in and out. I restored my working backup that I took before I upgraded and that did not fix the issue. I did some investigating and found that my IMEI is all 0's. I searched high and low on how to correct this but was unable to find anything. The last time I ran into this was when a bad CM update was released a few months back but was able to correct it by flashing MIUI and then back to CM but this time I was not so lucky. Any advice on how to correct this or do I need to Odin back to stock?

I have seen most of those threads and tried the imei repair tool. The part where I am getting hung up on is when I have to use the *# commands on the dialpad and nothing happens.

I found this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_AlQmfMJBK0 and it helped me get my IMEI restored and the data is working properly now. The only issue I have now is I cannot make/receive calls. Two things I noticed that might be the issue. The IMEI SV is 00 and when I go to Access Point Names that list is blank. I did reset to default but that did not repopulate them.
