Really, read it carefully, no matter what you do to your IMEI it may be illegal in your country, and may carry serious jail time as a penalty, the 'i'm repairing my imei, not changing it' argument makes no difference in some countries.

it dont matters if you change your imei...nobody goes to jail! it doesnt matters anyone! the only thing you loose is your warranty.
The Problems are the Providers...
some providers didnt check the imei at lock up in the cellular-net.
with these you can use the phone like you want. in germany only D2 Vodafone and T-Mobile check the imei. if you use e-plus or other nothing will be happen.
otherwise you cant lock in the cellular-net, so you have no reception.
Deleting Imei is a great way to use sim-locked devices! but only if you have e-plus as provider
