Next, there are some video tutorials on Youtube on this topic, e.g.:

My short Google Search also found some forum threads providing hints and solutions, e.g.:

I couldn't verify any of the mentioned solutions myself (luckily, I've never been affected by this problem) -- but I hope at least one of them will prove helpful to you.

I lost my IMEI today. Searched Google and for solutions, but could not find any. I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 I9505. Could you help me? Thanks! – SuperThomasLab Jun 28 at 13:37
@SuperThomasLab I have no Samsung device, so I'm the wrong person to guide you step-by-step. I only know with Sammies it has to do with the /efs partition usually. – Izzy Jun 28 at 13:40
I already restored the /efs partition, but it didn't work for me. – SuperThomasLab Jun 28 at 13:42
No more ideas then from my end. Maybe you open a new question (include a reference to this one to avoid someone counting it as "duplicate") with details what you've already tried, to attract those who might be able to assist? – Izzy Jun 28 at 13:43
will do that, thanks! – SuperThomasLab Jun 28 at 13:44
