thats the way it is for now- I do not condone changing esn numbers but I have confirmed I have repaired a few that lost signal do to esn changes- currently is no way to modify esn and retain any signal on the sprint model and on the us cellular it will work but without 3g

Any solution so far?
Were you guys able to get this problem solved?

Right now I am in the same situation.. if I change ESN/MEID I lose signal and I can't seem to change the IMEI at all .. DFS shows that it changes but after restart, only ESN/MEID is changed, IMEI always stays the same. I beleive that is the problem because ESN/MEID and IMEI aren't matching somewhere in the code.

Please do let me know if there is anyway to get the signal back.
Thanks!

What things have you guys tried? Only things I can think of right now is messing with IMEI repair and trying out different PRLs.

the answer is the Baseband.
I have a Sprint Note 3 & every time I've tried to update past the MJ4 Baseband, I lose signal.
I Flashed it to Boost & I've also tried manually flashing the PRL, still a no go.
my advice is to try downgrading the Baseband.
