How to find a phone’s IMEI number

Methods to find the IMEI number of your phone

Dial the IMEI code. You can retrieve the IMEI/MEID number on virtually any phone by dialing in the universal code. Dial *#06#.

You typically will not need to press the Call or Send button, as the IMEI/MEID number will appear as soon as you finish dialing the code

The location of this will vary from phone to phone, but the IMEI/MEID number is usually printed on a sticker that is affixed to the phone underneath the battery.[3]
If the phone has an IMEI number but you are on a network that uses MEID numbers, ignore the last digit (IMEI is 15 digits long, MEID is 14 digits).

GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile use IMEI numbers. CDMA networks such as Sprint, Verizon, and US Cellular use MEID numbers. Please note that we unlock only GSM-based phones.

You can also find the IMEI number on the original box of the phone.

Also, you can find the IMEI number by menu for the following operating systems and brands:

Android: Settings –> About Phone
Blackberry : Options –> Status
iOS : Settings –> General –> About
Sony Ericsson (New Devices) : Options –> status.
