In this post, I show you how to change IMEI on Mikrotik 4G/LTE device
Some ISP lock SIM on certain device and not work on other device, usually Fiber ISP giving end user a USB 4G backup (fail-over), the USB 4G has very crappy signal and very slow
Thanks to Jackson Huff’s about his finding!
Before we proceed
You need save your original IMEI elsewhere, you can change to original IMEI for warranty purpose.
You need WinBox for this, connect LTE kit via WinBox and open terminal
Get Current Mode
Enter this command on WinBox Terminal, see what value are return:
/interface lte at-chat lte1 input="AT*PROD\?"
Keep in mind the return value, usually
0 with no other message
Enter non-production mode by entering this command:
/interface lte at-chat lte1 input="AT*PROD=1"
You can try this if have error when changing IMEI:
/interface lte at-chat lte1 input="AT*PROD=2"
First, you need to delete old IMEI, make sure you have write-down current IMEI
/interface lte at-chat lte1 input="AT*MRD_IMEI=D"
Then, change to new IMEI
It’s advisable to use IMEI from broken iPhone or Android smartphone, or sacrifice your SIM2 slot IMEI
/interface lte at-chat lte1 input="AT*MRD_IMEI=W,0101,11JAN1970,my_imei"
my_imei to your IMEI
After changing IMEI, this command is a must in order to work!
/interface lte at-chat lte1 input="AT*PROD=0"
Then reboot your LTE kit to take effect, head over to LTE status and see LTE kit is connected
