Nigerians who are used to glo bis needs no introduction as to changing IMEI and why tweaking an android IMEI can be very important. For those who still do not know, well, we are here to help.
Changing your android phone IMEI to a blackberry IMEI makes it possible for you to use glo bis on your android phone without hustle. This method has been ongoing for a very long time now hence if you are still paying huge subscription bills on your android device despite having good Glo network in your environment, sorry o but you are or should i say, you’ve been on a long thing.
Over the past few months, we have constantly been talking on how to change an android phone IMEI and we have made reference to innjoo, tecno, infinix and other MTK processor running devices. Here on this post, We’d like to do same and we are making the newly launched infinix Hot 2 x510 the major reference here.
Just before we go into that, MTN promises everyone that gets the infinix hot 2 android phone 1GB of data for just N500. Hence, if you are interested in the device, you can check out our unboxing post plus video Here.
Now, while the proposed 1GB data plan for just N500 sounds very convincing, it cannot be compared to 3GB of data for just N1000 on the glo network. If you use your android device internet service on a regular basis, 1GB of data might not do enough. The GLO BIS plan which gives you 3GB of data for just N1000 should do better and that is where changing your android phone IMEI comes to play a vital role.
