Where can I find my device's IMEI Number?

The IMEI Number is the International Mobility Equipment Identifier Number. The IMEI Number is uniquely matched to a specific mobile device, usually smartphones and tablets. However, other manufactured products such as smart watches, appliances, lawn equipment and tools utilize their unique serial number as an identifier.

One of the many useful pieces of information gained from the IMEI Number is the ability to check the Apple iCloud lock/ activation status. This is of great importance to the end user, resellers and technicians. "Activation locked" devices are difficult and expensive to reuse thus creating more potential that those devices find a way to the landfill or a developing area. The STL SMARTphone team will show you a two step process to verifying the status/condition of your prospective smartphone and minimizing your risks.
