Finding your item's IMEI/serial number

What is an IMEI number?

IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity. It's a unique number given to every phone and used to identify it from other phones - a bit like a number plate for your device. IMEI numbers are usually 15 to 17 digits long.

Finding your IMEI number

  • You can find your IMEI number by calling *#06# from your phone (your phone won't actually make a call and you won't be charged).
  • Additionally, on most devices, the IMEI number will be printed in small letters on a sticker underneath the battery.
  • On iPhones, it's printed on the SIM tray. For help finding this, visit Device Advice, and select your iPhone model.
