Galaxy Note8 - Find Your Phone's IMEI Number (SM-N950W)

Last Update Date : Apr 03. 2019


Did you know your phone has its own special number that is unique just to it? It’s called the IMEI, or Serial Number. The fastest way to find the IMEI is to go to Settings and then search for and select Status. The Status section of the phone lists Battery, Network, IMEI, Serial Number and other information. There are several other ways to find the IMEI or Serial Number for your phone. Some are straight forward while others take some preparation. We will cover as many as we can, but not every method listed here applies to every phone. So you may need to try a couple before you find the one that’s best for you.

Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
