Samsung Mobile Phone: Where can I check IMEI, Model Code & Serial Number?
The IMEI number is unique and used by a GSM network to identify valid devices and therefore can be used for stopping a stolen phone from accessing that network.
For example, if a mobile phone is stolen, the owner can call their network provider and instruct them to blacklist the phone using its IMEI number.

All Samsung products will have the Model Number and Serial number on the device itself somewhere, usually it's on the back closer to the bottom. Sometimes it's hard to read because of the colour of the product, and the text can be small on phones, tablets and wearables. If it's too hard to read on the product itself - check the box the device came in, as the Serial Number will be there too. In India, if you buy a phone or tablet that takes a SIM, it is required by law to put the IMEI on the sale receipt.
