  1. Good one Hiidee!

    Just in case this return an error like "... not sent" I have experienced this before when helping a friend out, you just need to put space in front of "AT+EGMR=1,7,”NEW IMEI” like this " AT+EGMR=1,7,”NEW IMEI” OR put space after AT+ like "AT+ EGMR=1,7,”NEW IMEI”.
    Either of the two should work.

      • Hello Prem, have you put space either after the " sign or after the + sign???
