 What is my Phone's IMEI , What does it mean and How do i get it ?
Solution Your phone's IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number is an international "Serial number" for your phone to properly identify it.

Your IMEI can be found using the following methods :

  • At the back of your phone behind the battery

  • Or by dialing *#06#* while your phone is powered on  it is a 15 digit number.
    NOTE: If your phone prints out more than 15 digits for your IMEI , please only supply us with the first 15 numeric digits the phone provides, no dashes or space. The remaining numbers are unimportant as they are just checksum numbers.
 DO NOT SUPPLY THE IMEI LISTED ON THE OUTSIDE OF YOUR PHONES BOX AS IT CAN BE DIFFERENT THAN THAT OF THE PHONE IT SELF
