Was the phone dropped? Maybe the display is broken?

Can you boot into recovery and does the display work then?

The phone worked like a charm. I haven't used the phone for 2-3 months and now can't be booted into anything at all.
Only a vibration when I try to open the phone, LEDS working normal but the screen is complete black.

If nothing displays when you use the button combination to boot into recovery, then it must be a damaged display.

I am certain i have posted the same post twice now and it seems to have disappeared both times. Is there something this forum doesn't like about you posting a reply too quickly? As i did write it in a document then copy and paste it. So it will have posted a lot in very little time. Is this considered suspicious or something as i can't find my question that i know i posted.

I think you posted in one of the other Q/A threads.

The rules are against cross-posting. ie posting the same question in two different threads around the same time. Or even posting the same thing twice within 24hrs may of flagged your post. Have a read of the forum rules to check if you have broke them in anyway.

Sorry what am I missing

I understand your confusion. And I understand that there are legitimate reasons for editing your IMEI.
The problem is, there are also nefarious reasons for changing the IMEI. A stolen phone that is blacklisted and unusable can be used by doing this. Therefore, guides on editing your IMEI are prohibited here, and also instructions to do so too.
You could try Googling a method, but you may have to take your device to a shop to have your device fixed.
Sorry.

Edit, sorry it was in another thread. i must have got notifications with a link to this thread because i had visited it. and it made me assume my post had gone. my mistake. Sorry. I should notice the title difference! I probably should have posted it here though as it seems it gets more activity. But i know not to re try now.

i have asus zenfone max pro m1 phone i am planning to try some custom rom, as company provided updates are very very pathetic

however i read that many people are loosing their imei details from phone, so just to be safer side, i want to do something so that i do not loose my current imei any process for that,

i do not want to and dont have time to edit imei etc

also do we need to always have to flash firmware and decrypt file whenever we flash a new custom rom.

There is a thread in the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 forum, that describes backing up and restoring IMEI. However, it also states you need to be on a rooted, stock ROM.

Hi,
I'm in quite a rare situation, somehow I managed to damaged my sim slot, and cannot get it to work, so I was wondering if there's a way to do call forwarding form my old phone, to a device with no SIM. I tried Google voice, but it is not available in my country (Ecuador).
