Recently, I faced a problem with my HTC Touch Viva phone. I visited their Support Website to raise a Ticket for getting assistance. During this process, the online form asked me the Serial Number of my phone (this was a Mandatory field to fill). But they didn’t explain how to get the Serial Number! This added an additional effort to visit a Search Engine and find the answer.
I have also seen some other Support Websites, which provides user-friendly Tips (on the Online Form)to locate the Serial Number easily. I wish the same was available on HTC website too!
Coming back to the answer to this blog post, there are two “universal” ways to find the Serial Number. Your mobile device serial number, is also available as part of the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) Number. Check this Wiki page to get an in-depth knowledge on IMEI numbers.
- Available on the little sticker under your battery (requires to switch off your phone).
- Dial *#06# into your dial-pad will give you the IMEI number.
A friendly note – the above procedure will remain same for all the Mobile Phones (Nokia, Samsung, LG…) across the world!
