IMEI is a number which is unique to every GSM mobile phone. It is usually found
printed on or underneath the phone’s battery and warranty card. IMEI of any set
can also be found by dialing the sequence *#06# into the phone. The IMEI number
is used by the GSM network to identify valid devices and therefore can be used to
stop a stolen phone from accessing the network. For example, if a mobile phone is
stolen, the owner can call his/her network provider and instruct them to “block” the
phone using its IMEI number. This renders the phone useless, regardless of whether
the phone’s SIM is changed.
