Every mobile phone is assigned a unique, 15-digit IMEI code (device identifier)
that indicates information like the manufacturer, model type, and country of
approval. The IMEI can be displayed on most phones by dialling
*#06#. It’s also
shown on the compliance plate underneath the battery.
If the IMEI code is not provided by the device, a platform identifier is shown.
Platform identifiers (first character) are:
W – Windows
M – Mac
L – Linux
P – PDA
A – AcitveSync Mobile
X – Unknown
