There may come a time where you will need to locate the MEID or ESN of your Samsung Galaxy Tab. The MEID is the Mobile Equipment Identifier, and ESN is Electronic Serial Number. Both terms pretty much mean the same thing and are used interchangeably. In rare occasions, the term “device ID” may even be used. The chosen term usually depends on your wireless carrier. Either way, you can find this information by using these steps.
1. From the Home screen, press Menu.
2. Select Settings
3. Choose About device.
4. Select Status.
5. The MEID or ESN will be located on this screen.
You can also usually find this information on a bar-coded sticker located on the back of the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
