What is IMEI and where do I find it?

You may have heard the term ‘IMEI’ when being asked to talk about your device or when you are looking to trade-in / sell your phone. But what exactly is an IMEI and where do you find it?

IMEI stands for ‘International Mobile Equipment Identity’, which is a unique number that helps identify every individual mobile device.

When we repair phones, using the IMEI is a secure way to track the item and ensure the correct device is worked on and directed appropriately.

A standard IMEI is a 14-digit number sequence that typically appears in the format XX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-X
