Hi faithful readers, remember somtime ago when I wrote about tweaking your imei and get 1.5GB from etisalat, a lot of you were facing difficulty in fixing it. Here I’ve re-branded this article, and this is a detailed guide to getting the 1.5GB without any problems as I’ll hold you by the hand and give you a step by step tutorial.

I’ll had to write on everything that you need here so just follow me if you weren’t able to fix this up in the first post about it.

In the article I wrote about this, so many of you demanded for Phantom Z IMEI, just chill, this step by step tutorial is comming alongside with the Imei.

How To Tweak Imei and Get 1.5.GB On ETISALAT

You shouldn’t be new to this, but for those who don’t have an idea about it, let me make it clear to them. If you purchase a new Phantom Z, you are automatically entitled to 1.5GB from Etisalat, and if you purchase a new Infinix Zero, you are entitled to 500MB from Etisalat making 2GB.

So how do you gain from this, you have to change your imei eigther to Phantom Z or Infinix Zero, so that Etisalat see’s you to be eligible for the offer.

Ok enough of this lengthy talk, let’s go ahead to see how you can do this, for those who had problems with the first tutorial here, just follow the below steps.

How You Can Generate Imei And Get 2GB From Etisalat


  • A Rooted Android Phone
  • Generate a new imei
  • Change your phone imei

If you haven’t rooted your android phone, simple let me know, using the comment section, and I’ll let you know what to do.

How To Generate Phantom Z IMEI

  • For us to generate this imei, we need the first 8 digits of the Phantom Z IMEI which is 35370906.
  • The imei is normally 15 so we still have to look for 7 more digits to complete it. Out of the 7 digits, you can add any 6 digits of your choice e.g. 275842. This makes up 14 digits. E.g 275842 making it looks like this 35370906275842x
  • It’s remaining the last digit and this last digit is vital for the validity of your tweaked IMEI.

    How To Get The Last Digit Of The Imei

    It’s quite easy to get the last digit, just follow the steps below.

    • Download imei analyser from playstore, enter the 14 digit IMEI in the space provided and click on analyze. Whatever digit that display is your last digit.
    • OR

    • Go to this link, Now enter the 14 digit IMEI in the space provided and click on Check, it will provide you with the last digit.

    If you’ve tried the above steps and recieved a message saying that you’ve reached quota, then go ahead to try the below trial and error method.

    • Simple goto imei validation checker by following this link =>> Imei Validation Checker
    • When it opens, input the known 14 digits e.g 35370906275842 with an additional one number to make it 15 digits. Any number can serve here, just do a guess work e.g 353709062758423 and click on validate IMEI
    • If the number you added is correct, you’ll see a display such as “IMEI number is valid”. But it’s incorrect it will display “IMEI number is not valid”! And you’ll be given a the valid IMEI which will be displayed below it.

    Example: If you type 353709062758423, and it’s invalid, it will display “IMEI number 353709062758423 is not valid”! and immediately just below it, it will display “IMEI number 353709062758429 is valid”. So you’ve gotten a valid imei. Lets see how to add the Imei to your android device.

    How To Add The IMEI to Your Adroid Phone?

    I guess by now you must have generated your IMEI, just follow the below steps to put it in your android phone. Before we proceed, if you don’t have mobile uncle, then download it here.

    • Go to Engineer mode in mobile Uncle tool.
    • Select Engineer mode[MTK]
    • Now go to CDS information
    • Select Radio Information
    • Select the phone 2 (if you want to change sim2?s imei number) Here you’ll see a command line with “AT+…”.
    • Now just add this command to it AT +EGMR=1,10,”THE GENERATED IMEI NO” And press “send at command” button. (Supposing you want to change the the phone 1 IMEI “AT +EGMR=1,7,”NEW IMEI NO”).
    • Restart the phone and check the IMEI by pressing *#06#, it should display the imei which you changed now.

    How To Get The 1.5GB From Etisalat

    You are done with the above steps so now, it’s time to get the data you’ve been waiting for.

    Phantom Z: If you tweaked your imei to Phantome Z, Simply send Data to 8186 and get 1.5GB.

    To get the 500MB using Infinix Zero Imei, here is the first 8 digits of the New Infinix Zero IMEI =>> 35585906. Use thesame method you use for the Phanton Z to generate the remaining 7 digits

    Then send Mid to 8186 If you receive a negative response like “your device is already activated for the offer”, just try another IMEI until you receive a positive response.

    I hope this is a detailed tutorial? Let me know how it goes with you, or any troubles you experience along the way. Enjoy! 🙂


    • Hi Femi,
      Before changing the IMEI, when you open mobile uncle, click on Engineer Mode, you will see Backup/restore option, so you just click on it to backup your IMEI first before you go ahead to change your IMEI.

      Now after you must have gotten the data and want to reverse the imei to normal, go back to your Engineer Mode and still click on the Backup/restore, and it will restore your original IMEI to your phone.

      I hope that helped
      Any where you are confused, do let me know.

  1. Wasn’t even aware of this not until I came across this post, almost missed this great opportunity to get etisalat’s free package. These steps listed here to are really long. Would be hard for one to get it done, not unless they don’t follow the guidelines well. Not an Etisalat subscriber, but getting 1.5gb for free seems attracting. Might migrate over. Thanks for sharing, others will appreciate this. Time to take a break from spending so much to get very small data bunbles.

    • Hi Grace,
      You have been opportuned to see this and I think it will be great you take advantage of it, you don’t really need to put it to consideration wether to porth or not.

      This post is lengthy because I had to give detailed information so that every person can get to do it themselves.

      Enjoy this offer from FTB while it lasts 🙂

    • Hello gracia!

      Etisalat 1.5gb tweak on Android has been actually on for quite sometime now, though it may seem a bit difficult getting the Mb, because it requires continuous tweaking of imei to get the right one to work with.

      The post lenght and difficulty you talked about, really shouldn’t be a problem to you. As every additional line added to the post above was only there for simplicity and better understanding.

      Great post @Larry.

      • Uche, thanks for stopping by yet again, you’ve been acting the role of an admin in this blog for a while, esspecially in this particular topic, I really appreciate that, more grease to your elbow 🙂

  2. Bro rooting your phone is reverseable, meaning, you can still unroot it. BTW which phone do you use so that I can give you the tutorial on how to root it.
    Thanks, waiting ti hear from you.

  3. seems like in every 100imei you tweak just one is still valid for this offer,been tweakin it for like ever..larry pls can u send any valid imei u think that is,to [email protected],atleast i can take over frm there generatin more?

    • Hi Classic,
      I’ve sent about 10 imeis to your mail.
      Note: No person knows valid imei, because almost every person in Nigeria want to get this offer and any imei that isn’t valid means that another person has used it.
      Hope they work for you

  4. Hi, Larry,

    You had me curious with the title, because I had no earthly idea was Etisalat was….So reading to find out!

    Okay, I had to click your link to check out the “How to Tweak Your IMEI….” article to get some background because I was clueless.

    I’m now very impressed! 🙂 1.5GB is a lot, whoa, but I don’t have an Android phone, I currently use an iPhone. My daughter has Android and will forward this article to her. She’s really techy in this stuff and would enjoy it cuz she’s always looking for a great deal.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Ma’am Carol,
      It’s good you came over to read this. Etisalat is a communication network here in Nigeria, and in some Arabic countries, I don’t think you’ll have them over there at the states. But it’s good you know how to tweak your imei as there are heck of things you can do with that. I never knew you had a daugther who was a techie techie type (lol)
      Thanks for stopping by and do have a wonderful day ahead.

  5. Hi Larry,

    I was not even aware. 1.5 GB – WOW! That is something! I know a lot of folks with an Android and I know someone who would love to take advantage of this today. I will definitely forward this article. I am not much of a techie myself, but you have made it pretty easy here to understand. Thank you for sharing.

    • Hi Nate,
      Sure you can foward this article, but you can also do this on your etisalat sim, using your friends Android Phone, then use the data on any device, as an android phone can do that as many times as possible as far as you change it to a new imei.

      Thanks for stopping by.
