So, after doing a factory reset of my Infinix Hot Note, I ran into an invalid IMEI error which means no network connection for calls and data.

Thankfully I fixed it without breaking any sweat. Here is what I did with step by step tutorial.

This should walk on any android MTK device as I tried on Infinix HOT Note X551

1. GET YOUR IMEI NUMBER
Check the back of your phone after removing the cover, look on the battery, your IMEI should just be right there. Copy it by writing it on a piece of paper

OR 

Head over to https://dyrk.org/tools/imei/ to generate a random IMEI for use.

2. THE PROCESS 

For this method, you may need MTK Engineering Mode App from the Playstore (Note: Since IMEI is corrupt you will have no internet connection except you connect to a WIFI Access point). 
You may also dial *#*#3646633#*#* in the dial pad if this work for you without having to install MTK Engineering tool (I doubt that!)

Open MTK engineering mode app you installed from the Google Playstore, 
Go to "MTK SETTINGS"







Open THE CONNECTIVITY TAB 



Click on THE CDS INFORMATION and
Click on RADIO INFORMATION




Select Phone 1 for the first SIM







And enter the following command where you see AT+ as in the image above.
AT+EGMR or
AT +EGMR if it gives you "this command is not enabled in user build" error

So type in AT +EGMR=1,7,"Your IMEI" 

Like this
AT +EGMR=1,7,"365738736255254746"

The click on send AT Command
You should now see a success message

Repeat the same process for Phone 2 which is your second SIM

Click the back button on your phone to take you to the previous option to select the Phone 2 option

Repeat all step but use this command;
AT +EGMR=1,10,"Your SIM 2 IMEI"

Like this
AT +EGMR=1,10,"36473983737473"

And click send AT command
You should now see a success message

After all the command is done, exit the App and reboot your phone. All should be just fine now.
