How to find your phone’s IMEI number on iPhone and Android

It can be incredibly helpful to know how to find your phone’s IMEI number. When you come to sell your phone – if, for example, you exchange it with a manufacturer or provider – you need to know it.

If you have purchased one of the best phones you can, which is then stolen, you can use your IMEI to find the phone again more easily and even block it from accessing a mobile network to make it much less valuable to thieves . You may also need to know the number if you are traveling abroad, as it is necessary to register your phone for use in certain countries.
