Updated: How to use GLO BIS on Android

Disclaimer: Do this at your own risk. Mobility isn’t responsible for whatever happens to your device. So don’t blame us if you incur any damage. The below procedure is tested and it works. Changing of IMEI is illegal in some countries.

Be sure to follow the steps religiously, and you won’t run into any issues.

The trick here is to change your Android’s IMEI number to that of a Blackberry. Copy the IMEI of any Blackberry phone, preferably a dead/damaged one. But if its an active phone, make sure they’re not using GLO BIS on it. If you can’t go through the stress, use this PC tool to generate IMEI numbers for yourself.

  • Download this software GIP v4.1 here and unrar the file.
  • Copy and paste the three .sys files inside the  C:Windows folder.
  • Double click on GIPv4.1 to open it.
  • Click on Generate **** imei. Ignore the notice, and Click on Continue.
  • Write down the Blackberry IMEI number generated.

This procedure for now only works on MTK based devices i.e Android phones that run on MTK processors Tecno, Gionee, Infinix etc. For this to be done, you have to be able to access engineering mode.

Dial these codes to access it:- *#7465625# or *#*#3646633#*#*

If it doesn’t work, install any of these two apps from Google Play Store:

  1. MobileUncle tools. Open the app, Click on Engineer Mode> Engineer Mode (MTK)
  2. MTK Engineering Mode

Screenshot 1-horz

Screenshot MTK

Having done this, 1) Swipe from right to left to reach Connectivity option, 2) Click on CDS information, 3) Click Radio information.

Screenshot 3-horz

If you have dual SIM Android you’ll see TWO options Phone1 and Phone 2 select your preferred SIM slot.

1. Input the IMEI in this manner :-

  • “AT+EGMR=1,7,”IMEI_1”
  • “AT+EGMR=1,10,”IMEI_2”

(replace IMEI_1 OR IMEI_2 with your IMEI no) and tap on SEND command button, for example: “AT+EGMR=1,7,”35XXXXXXXXXXXX”

2. Check again to verify the number you typed is correct.

3. Click the SEND AT COMMAND

4. Save, reboot your phone and you’re good to go.

 NOTE:

  • 1,7 denotes changing SIM1.
  • 1,10 denotes changing SIM2.
  • Back up ur IMEI number first by screenshot, so in case of any issues, you can easily revert back.
  • Make sure to input the correct number else, Your device won’t detect any SIM. (Until you input a correct working IMEI number)
  • Two devices can’t use the same IMEI number on one network. Subscribe to different networks if you’re using the same IMEI number.
  • The IMEI number is 15 digits nothing more nothing less.

After rebooting, open your phone dialer and verify the IMEI is changed by dialing *#06#. Now head to your phone’s network settings and create a new APN:

  • Name: GLO BIS
  • APN : blackberry.net

Then Save.

Load up N1000 on your line, send the sms Comonth to 777, and wait for confirmation sms. If you can’t wait, look for any Blackberry phone around, insert your SIM inside it. Test and be sure its browsing, then remove the SIM and reinsert it back on your Android.

To check your data balance, text Status to 777. Here’s how to Rollover GLO BIS

Update [24/2/2015] : A good fellow has developed an Android app for generating IMEI numbers. This makes the whole thing easier. Using the app is easy and straightforward all credits to @codeberg

Download BBGen apk HERE

Update [28/4/2015] : For those using KitKat and Lollipop Android phones (running Android 4.4 or Android 5.0/5.1)  After inputting the IMEI number in this manner “AT+EGMR=1,7,”IMEI_1” Make sure to leave a blank space after the AT+ command before clicking on SEND.

E.g “AT+ EGMR=1,7,”IMEI_1”

If you don’t do this, the process won’t be successful

  1. Ayodele

    After changing the IMEI of my phone and for any season whatsoever I desire to revert to the original one, how would I go about this?

    1. Elroy Chibex

      Before changing,take a screenshot of the old IMEI for keeps. Then follow the same procedure to revert back.

    2. abekdac

      pls how do you do his on andriod lollipop version

    3. Elroy Chibex

      Follow same procedure with KitKat. The post is updated now

  2. @nelsonisibor

    Just curious though, why publish something that may have the slightest hint of illegality?
    I’m not a lawyer tho.

    1. Elroy Chibex

      Sir its illegal in some countries.Not all

    2. Okechukwu

      Not in Nigeria
      I don’t there is anything about imei in Nigeria constitution

  3. yemko

    How can that be done on Samsung galaxy S3?

  4. How Can That Be Done On Samsung Galaxy S3?

    The Changing Of Imei Only Works On Phones With Mediatek Processors, I Believe.

    Thus, Your Samsung Galaxy Can Not Partake Of This…

  5. NNG

    Men check out the disclaimer. That can scare anyone except the die hards. Gentlemen, once again the beauty of android.
    But really, I tend to agree with Nelson. I think its irresponsible to publish ways of doing something illegal. Its not like there are no other ways of finding out about this. I was just wondering.

  6. Ola

    Hi Mr Elroy, can I change the IMEI my infinix zero to that of BB? But, I subscribe for etisalat 3GB data and I still have it but not browsing. I have a BB with glo network and Internet is also working to. So, with your explanation now, If the IMEI of that infinix zero with etisalat line can be change it will work. Or is that not so?

    1. Elroy Chibex

      Yes you can. But use the GLO BIS on the Infinix

  7. Anonymous

    How do I check the IMEI of a blackberry so as to use on my android

    1. Elroy Chibex

      Dial *#06# to reveal the IMEI number. Please do not subscribe on the same GLO network on both phones.

  13. Anonymous

    After I changed the imei on my glo infinix, i subscribed, got the 3gig data but it is not working

  14. David

    Internet are a bit cheap for one to take that kind of risks.

  15. Will give this a try, but whats the data allocated for Glo BB 1K subscription? and after successful config, can it be shared via mobile Hotspot to other devices?

    Can this work with South African network? Just curious… I would love to use BIS on my S4 mini.

    1. Elroy Chibex

      This procedure won’t work on Samsung’s (unless its an MTK clone), and I doubt it’ll work on another network asides GLO Nigeria

  20. Does this BIS plan still work on android phones?

  21. Anonymous

    pls my phone is telling me ‘command sending fail”, pls what could be the cause and what can I do about it?

    1. Elroy Chibex

      Leave a space after the AT+ command, it will be sent successfully.

  22. goke

    I also tried it on my tecno h6 and it work perfectly Despite the fact that I share the same imei with my sister that use blackberry bold 2 but she is using airtel line on it.
    10 Q sir for sharing this

    1. Elroy Chibex

      You’re welcome Goke, As long as your sister is not using GLO for BIS, you both are safe 😉

  23. Olurotimi Clive Lawal

    Mine is saying AT command is Msent. What’s that?

  24. Olurotimi Clive Lawal

    I use the world famous Orbra Inferno

    1. Elroy Chibex

      Sir reboot your device and proceed with the steps

  25. Olurotimi Clive Lawal

    This is the text i received when i rebooted my device”Wàelcome! Your BlackBerry 8320 cannot receive any settings. Please visit our web site, http://www.gloworld.com, or call Prepaid: 121 or Postpaid: 200 to be configured.”

  26. Olurotimi Clive Lawal

    What does it mean?

  27. Last week, I subscribed to Glo’s 4.5GB So Special plan and I could only use it for WhatsApp. Like seriously? 4.5GB for WhatsApp only? Funny stuff. After 3 days or so, full browsing was restored. This week, I have not been able to use my GLO SIM comfortably – very poor network. In short, GLO has really disappointed me this year. All they do is system upgrades!

    1. Okechukwu

      You don’t use glo and aortel to browse
      Just for calls

    2. OlamideMB

      You’re wrong. You dont uuse Glo for calls, its horrible here. I prefer MTN for calls, glo for data. 1k 3GB on my passport. I dont even complain anymore, as long as internet works

  28. dlevels

    Pls where shld i type this commands on dialer interface or as a message.pls help

    1. Elroy Chibex

  30. Ajibola

    Hey, I would like alert you to the fact that the Glo BIS is no longer working on Android MTK devices, cos the usual msg ” Your Blackberry bla bla bla cannot recieve setteings…” No longer comes in even after u change the IMEI. Seem the Glo network had taken a move to finally stop it.

      It’s still working sir. That’s what I’m using currently

    Hello Elroy, I did everything you instructed but after clicking “send AT command”, and restarting my phone, the IMEI still remains dsame when I check it by dialling *#06#. Pls any suggestions? I use Gionee M3(marathon)

    1. Elroy Chibex

      Hello iLex, After the AT, leave one blank space before sending the command, the IMEI change will be effected

  50. iLex

    Good morning Elroy…
    I did as U directed “put a space BTW AT command. It showed msent (sth like that) meaning success but wen I restart my fine n check the IMEI, its still same old… Maybe I’m not restarting in the right manner? Maybe after clicking send, there’s sth I’m not doing b4 restarting? PS don’t be upset…. Help me out…. Thanks a bunch

  51. iLex

    One other thing, do I need to put up those quotes? Also, in the final step4, u said “save, restart and u re good to go”. Is restarting the way of saving or there’s s way I have to save b4 restarting the fne? Thanks

    1. Elroy Chibex

      Once it says command mSent, this means it was successful. Reboot your phone and check

  52. iLex

    Did all that… IMEI didn’t change….. Hmmm I wonder why…. Thanks anyway…

  53. iLex

    Hello Elroy..
    It finally worked… U didn’t mention that the IMEI was to be put between quotations I.e “1222667889”…. That was what I had to do for it to take effect…. Thanks…

      Try other browsers to be sure your device is actually browsing. I’m pretty sure your Google Play is trying to update itself, give it time.. Make sure you’ve set APN as blackberry.net

      You have to be sure the IMEI number actually changed. Secondly, make sure you created a new access point before trying to connect to internet

      Just reboot your device and wait it will be activated. The essence of inserting inside any blackberry phone first is for faster activation

  85. henry

    I was using the mtk engineering before my phone spoilt. I changed my imei again afta getting the phone back from carlcare but my glo sim of abt 2g bb data refuse to browse afta I changed the imei and vpn setting.

    I called glo bb careline and d guy told me the setting of Bold5 I used its imei and am using infinix zero. He said option>device>advance system settin>ccp/id>uncheck>cable host browsing>register now.

    Pls how do the setting on my infinix fone?

    1. Elroy Chibex

      Lol.why call customer care in the first place. When you know the plan isn’t official.I’ll advice you to generate a fresh IMEI number, and change it. Put in the appropriate settings and your phone will browse again

  86. nosa k

    Plz boss I have try to browse since yesterday but I guess glo have block it totally

    1. Elroy Chibex

      Hello Nat, The problem is that your Gionee E7 doesn’t run MTK processor. Sadly, this procedure will not work on it.

    1. Elroy Chibex

      It still works. What is your problem? IMEI doesn’t change? or Subscription doesn’t work?

    Hi there. I need help. please?
    I have a Hisense Infinity Pure Mini. The phone is using too much Data. I want to change it from using Data to using the BIS plan. I know there is some highly secretive setting on all Android phones to change this, I just don’t know where or how. Please HELP??
    Thanks.

  109. Donbenie

    The HTC ONE Xl unfortunately doesn’t come with a Mediatek Chipset and will not be compatible with the tweak which is ONLY for phones with the MTK SoC..

    1. Elroy Chibex

      Please Oga Chidi, switch on your mobile network. Set the APN and subscribe

    2. Femiblaze

      You can also get a blackberry phone to boost ur sim then re-insert into ur android

  113. MeSh

    Pls….I successful changed my imei and sent d code for 1k subscription but it has been on pending activation since yesterday… what should I do?

    1. Femiblaze

      Remove your phone from ya android. Get a blackberry phone and re-try subscribing. After subscription, use ur sim to browse on that BB for like 1-2hours. Switch ur sim back to ur android, it should work then.

      NOTE: don’t forget to set the apn and IMEI cloning

  114. Femiblaze

    Both are not mtk processor phone

  115. Donbenie

    I was able to successfully change my IMEI number but after reboot it seems my phone 1 which I did the tweak on with my glo SIM switched to phone 2 and SIM 2 with original IMEI on phone 2 switched to phone 1,I had to remove the two SIMs and swap the slots,is this normal or something..

    1. Elroy Chibex

      No problem sir . Ride on

  116. Donbenie

    After subscribing for the BIS plan I got a message from glo to remove my battery and insert later which I did,now my issue is that even though they’re still telling me subscription pending and all that but I’ve been browsing with the SIM without having my money deducted,any need to look for a BB to confirm or do I take the subscription was successful..

    1. Elroy Chibex

      No need for that sir. Continue your browsing

  117. Angel

    Am using infinix 551,I did mine long time ago but my question is this………I want to give out the phone and if the person am giving it subscribe via glo line,will the BB subscription still work?

    1. Femiblaze

      With a new sim… And a functioning Imei it sure would work

    2. Elroy Chibex

      Yes it will work for the person, as long as you didn’t restore factory settings.

  118. Femiblaze

    Text “Status” to 777 to verify but I won’t advise you to do that. Keep using ur mb especially if the #1000 was already deducted.

  119. Donbenie

    With glo network’s current improvements,this is really coming in handy for a lot of consumers,hope they don’t get it into their heads to block this..

  120. tosign

    Pls,can u help me generate an imei no.

    Good day Chief Editor, nice article.

    I already have this tweak on my phone and it works perfectly fine.

    I wish to subscribe to the glo 3gb weekend plan for N500 so I can download some large files.

    What I wish to know is if I can go ahead and do this but switch the APN from glo bis to glo flat. Will I be able to use the data?

    Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

    1. Elroy Chibex

      Hello Robert, Yes, you can switch your APN and use the regular weekend plan
