Find Your Phone's IMEI or Serial Number

The fastest way to find the IMEI or Serial Number 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 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 vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Other Ways to Find the IMEI or Serial Number

  • The Back of your Device: If you have a removable battery, look under or below the battery for the phone's IMEI or Serial Number.

  • The Packaging: The original box may list the phone's full IMEI and Serial Number.

  • Your Carrier's Website: Your account details may list the phone's IMEI and Serial Number.

  • Bill of Sale: Review your sales receipt or contract for your phone's IMEI and Serial Number.

  • Samsung+: If you have a Samsung account and the S+ app installed on your phone, the Serial number stored in S+ is actually your phone's IMEI number.

  • Dial *#06# on the phone to display the IMEI and Serial Number. This only works when supported by your carrier.
