It's not guaranteed loss of imei just seems to be the trend

Couldn't resist testing for IMEI loss....

I installed TWRP recovery via Goo app, backed up CM10 (installed via CWM) with TWRP, used TWRP to flash CWM recovery, restored a CWM stock deodexed nandroid, reinstalled TWRP to make a nandroid of the stock ROM, restored the stock via TWRP to ensure it worked and then restored CM10, which is what I've been running since 7/20. I tested for IMEI loss along the way and (so far) it's still there.

Same issue here. On the TeamWin site the only S3 option is for verizon.

That means that I must've been lucky then. I had cm10 then decided to go back to my nandroid of stock. I still have my imei after flashing from that stock nandroid to aokp then back to a deodexed stock rom. I used cwm every time.

I really dont think CM10/9/AOKP are the culprits for lost IMEI, in fact CWM alone may not even be to blame, I think its a combination of factors that can cause IMEI loss, one thing I think is how CWM is flashed to the phone, I've personally only used ADB to flash CWM to the phone, and havent (thank god) experienced the IMEI loss issue, however there have been reports that flashing CWM via odin and then flashing CM9/10/AOKP from stock causes IMEI loss...I'm pretty sure its quite a random occurrence though.

Losing imei is very very very rare or you would see rom threads full of crying... Cm and aokp are probably not the culprits but it's so far the only thing other than cwm that seems to be reoccurring in the occurrences that imei does disappear. Usually it seems by people using nandroid backup somewhere before or after flashing cm9/10
