Every mobile phone has a unique IMEI number, or “International Mobile Station Equipment Identity” number. It can be found by dialing “*#06#” on most phones, and is often printed inside the battery compartment of a phone. Your phone’s IMEI number can usually be found within your settings menu, as well.

For items other than mobiles phones, you’ll need the serial number – a unique code assigned to a gadget for identification.
