Every mobile device has an IMEI number, which the GSM network provider can use to identify genuine devices. It is simple to get your mobile phone to display its IMEI code, as well as other information about your phone device, on the screen by typing *#06#, which is universal and works on all mobile phone devices.
Depending on the network, the information obtained by dialing *#06# will be IMEI, a 15-digit number for AT&T and T-Mobile networks, or MEID, a 14-digit number for Sprint, Verizon, and US Cellular networks. The IMEI number of an iPhone 5 or any other original iPhone mobile device is written on the back of the cover. For older iPhones, such as the iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, and 4s, the IMEI code is printed on the SIM card tray for the specific model, and you should consult the manual to learn how to remove the SIM card tray and retrieve the code.
Aside from that, you can power on the iPhone device and go to Settings General IMEI. Hold the IMEI button until you receive a notification that the number has been copied if you wish to copy it. If you need to locate your iPhone IMEI number, utilizing iTunes Connect your iPhone to the computer, choose it from the device menu, and then click the summary button. When you click the phone number entry next to the image of your iPhone device, information about the device's IMEI code will be displayed.
