Check IMEI Number to
Learn More About Your Phone

The IMEI Number is defined as the International Mobile Equipment Identity is a number, usually unique, to identify 3GPP and iDEN mobile phones, as well as some satellite phones. The IMEI Number is usually found printed inside the battery compartment of the phone but can also be displayed on the screen of most cell phones by entering *#06# MMI Supplementary Service code on the Dialpad.

The IMEI number is a unique 15-digit code that precisely identifies the device with the SIM card input. The first 14 digits are defined by GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications). The last digit is generated by an algorithm named Luhn formula and it has a control character. This number is a unique number assigned to each phone worldwide. The IMEI number was created because the SIM card number cannot be a permanent identifier. The SIM Card is associated with the user and can be transferred from one phone to another.
