How do I find my IMEI number?

International Mobile Equipment Identity

To find out your mobile phone's IMEI number, type (see below for exceptions) :

* # 0 6 #

into your mobile phone handset. As you complete the above code, your mobile phone's IMEI number will be displayed on the screen.

Alternatively, you can also find the IMEI number recorded on an identification sticker, normally located on the rear of the handset and underneath the battery.

You will need your mobile phone's IMEI number if you report the phone lost or stolen to the police, your insurance company or your mobile phone provider, therefore you should keep a record of the IMEI number somewhere safe... You can record your IMEI numbers here on IMEI.org.uk - if you should ever need to look it up, you will only have to enter your email address and password to retrieve it - as you'll not be able to retrieve it should your phone be lost or stolen!

Our IMEI recording facility will be up and running in the very near future... Watch this space!
