Default [Q] Mobile Net Work Not Available

Pls help, i bought me verizon samsung galaxy note 3 from a guy on craigslist with a bad IMEI number.

i understand that with a bad IMEI number i cant use verizon services but i can use GSM ones. also verizon samsung galaxy note 3 comes factory unlocked so i should be able to use T-Mobile, but i cant. i went to mobile network and change the preferred net work to GSM/UMTS but i kep getting Mobile Network Not Available.

PLS help.

I know that providers share information on bad imei and then they block it, essentially not allowing it to connect to a service provider. But It may be different on an unlocked phone. Either way try to change your APN settings to what ever provider you want to use.

Good luck.

First try to give it to back that guy. Because if IMEI is change your phone then its indicated that this cell phone is not secure. If you want to used mobile networks then your can used different kind of VPN for this. Or first check that Mobile network is enable in settings or not ?
