Default how to change imei number on google nexus one?

My phone has been repaired and IMEI number has changed.
I need to reinstall the old IMEI number.
Does anyone know how to do that?

It's illegal and you can't.

Your phone hasn't been repaired, it has been replaced, hence having a new IMEI.

Well, weather it's illegal or not really depends on where you are. There's no law in Bolivia for example that prevents it...

But seriously, unless you want to (try and) deceive your carrier there is no valid reason for a consumer to need to change the IMEI.

What problems are you experiencing with your new phone that you want to address?

You can't. Why can you not just tell them your new IMEI?

or take off the battery, the new IMEI code is there with the serial number too.

i think what he ment is that in order to register a new IMEI he needs some prooving documents for the phone (AKA measure agains registering stolen phones)

It's not illegal to change IMEI #s in the U.S. We don't blacklist GSM phones, so thieves have no reason to change IMEIs. I want to know how to do it, though, because I think it is bull**** that AT&T tries to charge different data rates based on what kind of phone you have rather than how much data you actually use. They don't seem to be forcing the AT&T branded nexus ones onto the more expensive data plan yet, but there's speculation that it's only because they don't yet have the IMEIs in their database.

So please drop the legality comments and post if you have something useful to add.
