    Hi,

    As the title says it all my mac address is set to 02:00:00:00:00:00 after updating my phone to 3.5.5 is anyone facing the same issue??
    Could this be related the network drop issue?

    Edit : The solution for this problem is to reset
    Network settings. This can be done through
    Goto settings - - > Backup and Reset - - > Reset network settings for both sims.
    This resolved my issue.
    @SoniaB please edit the title to include Solution in the title.

    You are right. After the update the MAC address of the device got updated to 02:00:00:00:00

    I appreciate your caution blotting out your IP address, but you do realise that you've shown us your MAC address and now all of those evil hackers will be able to... oh wait.

    The MAC id would change once the network drops and then goes back to random MAC id. for a device to be stable MAC has to be unique and not change

    Mine is permanently showing 02:00:00:00:00:00.
    Where are you checking mac address. I am checking through settings - - > about phone - - > status.
