Default Weird issue. Unknown imei but baseband mk2. Phone works fine?

Title says it all. Imei is unknown in settings, and when I type in the dialer code I get --/05 (-- meaning blank). All phone functions work fine though which is weird. I know now because I tried to get a replacement through T-Mobile and they said the imei had no recent activity on the account. Any ideas on how to get it back?

If you have a nandroid backup, you can restore your /efs folder.

Unfortunately the phone was like this when I got it. My efs folder is missing .nv_data.bin.
