Recently we have had several inquiries about the IMEI number on the smartphones we sell so we decided to put this little blog together to answer the most common question, What is IMEI and how can I find my phones IMEI number

So what is IMEI?

It is short for International Mobile Equipment Identity. Which is a number, usually unique, to identify mobile phones, as well as some satellite phones.

In this blog post I am going to introduce 3 different methods to find the IMEI numbers on this Xiaomi Mi5.


A. From Setting Menu

Go to Setting>About Phone>Status>IMEI information, you can check your Xiaomi Phone’s IMEI numbers. After you can see from the screen, there are two different IMEI numbers shown on the screen. It is simply because Xiaomi Mi 5 is equipped with dual sim card slots.


B. From Dial Pad

Enter “*#06#” from your dial pad and the IMEI code will be retrieved easily. This universal code works well no matter what phone you use. so wether is a Samsung, Xiaomi, Lenovo, UMI, Bluboo, Doogee, THL or other smartphone you should be able to use this method to get the IMEI number.


C. From the Packaging

For all the Xiaomi Phones bought from Chinavasion, there is a bar code label to the back cover of the phone box. You can see the IMEI, MEID and Serial number on it. This is generally the case for many other phones however some may be printed on the user manual or a card inside the phone packaging. On some phones wioth a removable back the IMEI number could be on a label on the inside of the case, sometimes below the removable battery.
