For many cell phones, there are HOWTOs for changing the IMEI. I know that,
at least for Siemens phones, the IMEI is stored in the main firmware
image. Do most phones use some other type of GSM modem that doesn't store
the IMEI inside, or do they upload the entire GSM modem firmware into the
chip on bootup instead of having flash memory inside the modem?
