I have two of the exact same models of a phone (moto z2 force) . The one with service has battery issues, and out of warranty. I decided to try my luck SIM swapping. To my amazement, data works. However, upon messaging myself, error 97 occurred.

I tried CDMA resetting it, however that did not help. My best guess is the IMEI is incompatible. Would I be able to spoof it to my old phone, in any way? Try custom building the OS to give my other phones IMEI or something? Or am I SOL (I can't activate this phone, outstanding bill) as far as I know, Motorola is sold unlocked on US Cellular.
