What is IMEI? How do I find out the IMEI of my phone / iPhone?

IMEI is the international identifier for mobile equipment. Each device has its own unique IMEI that sets it apart from the rest.


IMEI is a generally accepted standard for all mobile devices, which is "sewn" into the phone during manufacture. This is something like a serial number that is broadcast to the operator when the phone is authorized on the network. The IMEI code format is the same for all phones regardless of the manufacturer. Also, the IMEI code is used to track and block stolen phones at the level of a mobile operator, which in the future does not allow the use of such a device in the network of this operator. However, blocking the IMEI code from one operator does not prevent its use in other networks.


The IMEI code consists of 15 digits.
