How To Find The IMEI Number Of A Mobile Phone

IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity and is a long number used to identify GSM,WCDMA and iDEN phones. The code is used by a specific network to identify valid devices. So if a mobile phone is stolen for example, the owner can call their network provider and inform them and they will go on to blacklist the imei from their network. This makes the phone completely useless on their network.

So what do you need to display the IMEI number on you’re phone? Well it’s simple! Just a short code is needed. Dial on you’re keypad the following code: *#06# and you’re IMEI number should be displayed. It’s as easy as that!

You can also find the code without entering anything into you’re dialpad. Switch you’re phone off, take out the battery and look for a label in the empty battery slot. In very small print, the IMEI should also be displayed here.
