    Guys, please help. I accidentally bought a Xiaomi Hongmi TD-SCDMA version back to Malaysia and I found out it unable to use in Malaysia GSM card. Want to ask:

    - Will it be able to change the bandwidth TD-SCDMA to WCDMA so that I can use my 3G service in my country?

    - I try to slot in both slot (the TD-SCDMA and GSM slot), the phone seems unable to detect my sim card even i try few other SIM cards as well. Is it because of the phone or SIM card problem?

    - I found out that the IMEI number is unavailable. Is it the root causing the phone unable to detect my SIM card?

    Please help.

    Have checked if it's original device?
    Strange you aren't able to see the IMEI

    The imei should be in the back of the phone, remove the cover and you should see it.
    If you don't see it thats weird.
