The International Mobile Station Equipment Identity or IMEI on a smartphone is a unique set of numbers and letters that identifies your phone or tablet. If you are wondering where you can locate the IMEI number on an Android smartphone, you can find usually find it in one of these four locations.
Option 1 – Android Settings
- Tap “Settings” from the Home screen.
- Select “System“. (Skip this step on some models)
- Scroll toward the bottom and tap “About phone“, “About tablet“, or “About device“.
- Tap “Status“.
- Select “IMEI Information“.
- The IMEI is listed on the screen.
Option 2 – Retail Box
The IMEI is also often listed on the retail box your phone came in. It usually can be found on a white, barcoded sticker.
Option 3 – SIM Tray
Not all, but some devices have the IMEI printed on the SIM card tray. Use a paper clip or a SIM eject tool to push the pinhole button and pop the tray out. You may need a magnifying glass to view the IMEI.
Option 4 – Inside Phone
If you have a phone with a removable battery, you can usually pop the battery out and view the IMEI somewhere in the battery compartment.
If you don’t have a removable battery, the IMEI number is likely still somewhere on the inside of the phone. It will just take a bit more effort. Visit iFixit to see if there are instructions for disassembling your phone so that you can check.
