How do I find the IMEI on my Samsung Galaxy S5?

Your device can be identified by its International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) number. IMEI numbers are hard-coded into device hardware to prevent theft.

Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Find IMEI number

If you have pre-ordered your device and have not received it yet you will not be able to obtain your IMEI information. The IMEI and complete serial number will be located on your device.

To view your device's IMEI:

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps.

  2. Touch Settings.

  3. Scroll to and touch About device or About phone.

    It may be necessary to touch the SYSTEM tab and then touch About device.

  4. Touch Status.

  5. Scroll to your 15-digit IMEI number.
