[Q] HTC Magic bought from China has null IMEI

Hi,

I am a total noob when it comes to Android O/S and i need to know if i am screwed or not when it comes to this phone.

I bought a phone from China on AliExpress and the sole selling point for me was that it said it had a genuine Android O/S on it and not an Android-like user interface.

The phone looked like an HTC Magic but it said it was an ePhone.

When i got the phone, it was branded HTC magic and the box, stickers, everything says HTC on it. I have 2 problems with the phone. It won't connect to Wi-Fi networks or GSM networks. The Wi-Fi gives an error while scanning and turns off the Wi-Fi and the GSM also gives an error while scanning.

After trying to figure out what the problem was, i noticed the IMEI shows as 0000000000 in Android but if i look inside the phone, i do see an actual IMEI number. I have reset the factory settings but that didn't do anything.

Is there a way for me to fix this so Android sees the real IMEI?

Here are details about the phone :

HTC Magic A6161
P/N : 99HFU012-00 B

I am located in Montreal, Canada
and my SIM card is for the Rogers network

Thanks for any help you can provide.

-Pr.
