The only way is to use a box like BB5king and a data cable. Therefore you will need to find a store that unlocks or by the box which is a bit $$$. More details will be published at
I recently needed also to match IMEI with the vendor and device type.. I found the following webpage where you can enter IMEI and get the device and vendor details at nobbi.com:. http://www.nobbi.com/tacquery.php. The only disadvantage is that if you need to match lets say more then 20 devices th…en you have to enter each one by one. Otherwise it is a great site. Good luck! (MORE)
You can supply your IMEI number to your cellular provider, and they can use it to see if that particular handset is currently being used. They probably would not be able to reveal to you who's account it was linked to unless it was your account. To the best of my knowledge you cannot actually tra…ce the physical location of a phone itself with just it's IMEI number, your cell provider can only use the IMEI number to bring up the cellular phone number that it's linked to.

The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is a unique 17 or 15 digit code used to identify an individual mobile station to a GSM or UMTS network. The IMEI number provides an important function; it uniquely identifies a specific mobile phone being used on a mobile network. The IMEI is a usef…ul tool to prevent a stolen handset from accessing a network and being used to place calls. Mobile phone owners who have their phones stolen can contact their mobile network provider and ask them disable a phone using its IMEI number. With an IMEI number, the phone can be blocked from the network quickly and easily. (MORE)

Since IMEInumber is unique, it will help us in locating your lost or stolen mobile handset . For now, note down this IMEI number and keep in a safe place. You can also find your mobile IMEI number on your mobile handset packet cover. When you switch on our mobile phone, your mobile SIM card tries t…o connect with any available network. Once it finds a supported network it tries to build a network connection between your mobile handset and the nearest tower. During this connection negotiation, your SIM transfers some internal information to the network operator such as your mobile IMEI number, mobile model, version etc. This means your mobile operator keeps the record of your mobile handset number each time you try to switch on your mobile handset and use their service. . Now if you have lost your mobile handset or your phone has been stolen, you can contact your network provider to block your IMEI number . They might ask you to get a Police FIR copy first, do as they say and finally ask them to block your IMEI number. Mobile network providers use a shared hosting service for blocking IMEI numbers, which means if you have asked network 'Airtel' to block your mobile handset, it automatically gets blocked by network 'VodaFone', 'Reliance', 'Idea Cellular' and so on. Now when that thief will switch on your mobile handset, no service providers will allow it to build any connection with them. It does not matter if he changes the mobile SIM card, since SIM card requests for the service with IMEI number and a blocked IMEI number handset will be ignored and the mobile will become an useless toy.

The IMEI number is the serial number attached to your phone that shows what device you made calls from. Every phone has it's own IMEI number. It's usually located at the back around the battery. It's a big long number. Everytime you make a call on your phone, it leaves what's called a digital footpr…int on your account. This digital footprint can be pulled up to show which device you made a call from, like in a case where you had a billing dispute or something. (MORE)

It cannot be done. Unless you want to change the hardware and damage the phone in the end, there is no way for you to do that since an IMEI number is the identification number of the phone or the serial number.
You can't change IMEI number on a Nokia 5310, as well as on any phones, since IMEI number is another term for serial number.

Ask your new cellular provider. Most will be able to port your number from the old provider. If it's the same provider, ask them - 99% they'll keep your old number. I kept mine when switching from prepaid to a postpaid plan with the subsidized iphone3gs (they even gave me a new free SIM that… I had to activate pretty soon since the old one had some glitches on 3g in some places). CAUTION (if you already had a gsm/pcs/dcs/3g cellphone): the iphone4 uses a smaller SIM card than other cellphones or older iphones. Most companies will replace it for free, or you can chop the old one. Make sure to write down the serial numbers on the old SIM, then back up the phonebook and SMS messages before chopping, since chopping CAN go wrong. TL;DR Call the customer service dept of the provider you'll be using the iphone4 with and ask about phone number and SIM. (MORE)
