Exclamation IMEI Problems!!

Damn!

I need to get hold of my IMEI number out of my phone, which ive never had a problem with before, but now ive pressed *#06# and nothing happens. AGGH

When i press another * after this, all that happens is the "Messaging/Contacts" softkeys i have disappear, and then reappear when i try to enter the code again

Can anyone help me please, im a bit worried why this is happening!

And its also on the box it comes in, if you still have that.

bit of a given, but have you turned the phone off and removed the battery and then let it rest for 30 seconds or so??

I tried under the battery last night, i should have the box, but knowing me and boxes that could be anywhere lol

Yeah i took the battery out too - its just well confusing, ive never seen a problem like this before lol!

Do you think that doing a fresh firmware install will correct it? Im on v12 already but maybe re-installing it might help me?

Are you running SkyeQuiKey? I had the same problem when running this program but stopping the program fixed the problem. I haven't been able to replicate the fault since!

Nope not using this - i cant think of anything that might be running in the background automatically that might do this anyways, i know its not a program ive started if it is, as ive turned the phone off a couple of times ....

Try *#0000# (should tell you your OS and firmware revision)

If my IMEI number wasn't under my battery I would be more than a little concerned!

yeah, your IMEI # should be under the battery... have a look... its the long one with /'s in it...

shut off any other programs your running, take out your MMC and see if your still stuck to make sure nothing is confliciting>!??
