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, 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
