How to find the IMEI number -

iPhone 5 upwards

Most models have it printed on the back cover & also on the inside of the SIM tray, in very small print.

Alternatively, in the phones' menu, go to -

Settings > General > About > ICCID (this is the IMEI)

Or go to make a call & dial *#06#


iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, or 4S

Go to make a call & dial *#06#

Alternatively, remove the SIM tray with a straightened paper clip or SIM eject tool. The IMEI is printed on the SIM tray itself. Please note that the text is very small & some customers may struggle to read it.

Otherwise, in the phones' menu, go to -

Settings > General > About > ICCID (this is the IMEI)


Android

If it's a model which allows you to do so, then remove the back cover & battery. The IMEI will be printed on the inside of the phone on a white sticker. The user can also take this opportunity to remove the SIM & give it a gentle wipe.

Alternatively, go to make a call & dial *#06#

As with iPhones, the IMEI can also be found in the phones' menu, under 'Settings'. Where it is exactly will vary depending upon which software version the phone has, but try -

Settings > About Phone > Status > IMEI
