Significance of IMEI

Number of smartphone users across the globe has gone up tremendously over the past 5 years. But this has also led to an alarming increase in smartphone thefts. Despite the latest security apps & fingerprint locking, phones still get stolen today. Losing a smartphone is a nightmare not only because of the financial loss but more importantly you lose all your contacts & data. If you have unfortunately lost your phone then you should know how to track down its location before it's too late. That's the reason you need to be aware of IMEI number of your phone.

IMEI is a unique 15-digit identifier for a cell phone. IMEI can be found on battery of your phone or on packaging sticker that came with your hand set. For most of the modern handsets, IMEI can also be found by typing *#06# key sequence on your phone.

Most people lose hope after the phone is stolen assuming that the thief would immediately replace the SIM card and then it's impossible to track the phone. But you can still track lost phone using IMEI.

IMEI makes use of GPRS to locate your hand set. Another important use of IMEI is that you can inform 'Central Equipment Identity Register', the governing body for IMEI about the phone theft and they will black-list the hand set corresponding to that IMEI number. So, nobody can use the device again even with new SIM card.

Track Phone Using IMEI Online

There are couple of different ways in which you can track IMEI number online. You can download apps that provide this service but you need a data & GPS enabled smartphone to do this. Also, many of these apps are either paid or they work on freemium model. The best & fastest way to locate phone by IMEI is using an online tracker like ours.

Our tool is efficiently built to trace down the current location of your device. We make use of both IMEI number & mobile number to pinpoint the location. It's a Free tool built to serve the community. The tracker is designed to work with worldwide numbers but please ensure you enter the details properly otherwise the returned data won't be accurate.

Other notable options include Android Device Manager for android phones and iCloud for iPhones where you can track your phone by IMEI or mobile number.

Although people tend to rust to authorities to lodge a complaint as soon as they lose their phone, that should not be your first step. Many people go to their telecom service provider. The service provider can help you locate the phone using IMEI but only after you show them police report about your lost phone.

Often the service providers will just deactivate the SIM card but beyond that it’s hard to expect any help from them.

Here's the plan of action to find your lost phone quickly:

  • Find phone by IMEI number using online tools or apps. Note down the location of device
  • Contact CEIR to blacklist the IMEI and alert your service provider to block the SIM
  • Lodge a complaint with police specifying the current location

The step 1 mentioned above is critical because in some cases, an expert hacker can even change the IMEI number and if that happens then there is zero chance to get back your phone.

In case you have confidential data on your phone and need to protect it then you can go to Android Device Manager or iCloud and enable the 'Lock/Lost' mode. This will disable the login access to your device and the person who took your phone won't be able to access your contacts or other personal data.

The important thing to note here is that you should have location service activated on your phone. If it was turned off before being stolen then unfortunately there’s very little hope.

What if the phone is switched off?

This is probably the first question that comes to your mind. If you had turned on location service on your phone while you had it, you have a chance. Even if someone switches off your phone, IMEI tracker will trace the location history and give your last known location of your phone before it was turned off. So, you can still track it down.
