Your phone company can tell you - they know everything about your phone as soon as you use it smile

There is usually a barcode on teh side of the box, or inside the battery compartment.

It is a really really long number.

I know on Nokias you can dial


and it tells you the IMEI.

There is probably a similar thing for most makes.

Hmmm. Threw box away...
Inside the battery bit there are loads of different numbers. One says IC: xxx, another FCC ID: xxxx and the last has no title but is v v long with two forward slashes seperating the numbers.

Try the code.

Just tried it on my Sony Ericsson and it works.

you can do the *#06# on all phones and the number will come up - its a 15digit number

The IMEI was supposed to be able to let operators block stolen 'phones but they never put it into practise as they were concerned about loosing revenue!!
