Question

This is a walkthrough on how to get the IMEI number of your Lenovo phone.

Answer

The IMEI number, or International Mobile Station Equipment Identity number, is "used by a GSM network to identify valid devices and therefore can be used for stopping a stolen phone from accessing that network. For example, if a mobile phone is stolen, the owner can call his or her network provider and instruct them to "blacklist" the phone using its IMEI number. This renders the phone useless on that network and sometimes other networks too, whether or not the phone's SIM is changed.

 

The IMEI is only used for identifying the device and has no permanent or semi-permanent relation to the subscriber. "

That number is usuall listed just behind the battery. Just remove the battery to see it.

Type *#06# on your phone dial app or check on the packaging that came with the phone.
