Question [Q] null IMEI & no network signal

Hi every one.
i have a new galaxy S5, the problem is my IMEI is null, and the Baseband version is " Unknown " so my phone is 100% dead with that " no service " notifiction. i dont know any thing about the phone, it's not rooted, i just have to fix it, so any help with that !?

Just to be clear, you have never rooted the phone and KNOX isn't tripped? If so, you can just get it fixed under warranty, because I can assume you do not have an EFS backup and without that you cannot fix ti yourself.

Just turn the phone in for repair under warranty if you bought the phone, btw changing IMEI number is illegal and cannot be discussed on XDA
