Hi,

The serial number you're seeing, you have already found. Model numbers, SKU numbers and FCC numbers are there for a variety of purposes. The only number for you to concern yourself with is the substitute for the serial number.

MEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) numbers are used to help mobile phone companies and you keep track of mobile phone usage. If your phone is lost or stolen, the phone company can enter the IMEI number into the database and permanently deactivate the phone. Even if the SIM card is changed, the mobile phone will not work. There are a few things you can do to find the IMEI number on a mobile phone. Obviously, you've already discovered it so you may find the rest of this boring. In any event, you can be a hero to any friends who might encounter the same problem. Just don't tell them that you got the information free on the Internet.

Moderate

Instructions
Things You'll Need

Mobile phone

1. Open the battery cover on your mobile phone and remove the battery. The IMEI number should be located on the white label under the battery. It will be 15 to 17 digits long with no letters or slashes. You only need the first 15 numbers.
2. Replace the battery and power the phone on. If the IMEI number is not located under the battery, there are other ways to find it. Wait for the phone to initialize before continuing.
3. Enter *#06# on your phone's key pad. When the final # is entered, a 15-digit number with the title "IMEI number" will appear. Copy the number down and keep it for future reference.
4. If that didn't work you have still more options. If your phone is made by Motorola, you need to press #,*, (menu) and then press the right arrow very quickly. Do not pause when pressing the keys. The IMEI number will appear on the screen.
5. Check the phone's menu if you have a SIM card. Scroll through the menu until you find IMEI or SIM ID. Press enter to display the phone's IMEI number.
6. If you have an older phone with a SIM card, you can press the right arrow until you see IMEI. Press the Enter key to see the IMEI number. If there are only seven digits shown, you can hit the Menu key and then the Next key to see the remaining digits.



Tips & Warnings

Write down your IMEI code so you have it in case your phone is lost or stolen.

  • Report your phone lost or stolen immediately and give the phone company your IMEI number so they can disable your phone.
  • The IMEI number retrieval code (*#06#) does not work for all phones.
See that wasn't too bad.

All the best,

Ben
