How do I find the IMEI, model number and serial number for a Samsung Galaxy device?
All mobile devices have a unique identity that is made up of an IMEI number, serial number and model number. Depending on your device model, there are a few different ways to find out this information. Read on to find out how to check the IMEI of your mobile device.
Please note: Wi-Fi-only tablets do not have an IMEI number.
Please note: On older devices you may need to tap "Status" to view this information.
Depending on your device, your IMEI, serial number and model number may be printed on the back or beneath the removable battery.
For devices with a removable battery, the IMEI number will be in different places depending on your model. It is usually under the battery or printed on the phone near the bottom of the device.
Please note: Most newer devices do not have a removable battery. If your device does not have a removable battery do not attempt to remove it as this may damage the device and void the warranty.
If the letters written on the back of your device are too small or if your screen is broken so you can't find the number via the Settings menu, you can also refer to the original packaging for the IMEI number for your device.
