IMEI stands for “International Mobile Equipment Identity” and is a unique number assigned to each mobile phone. This code can be found on the back side of the cell phone battery. The number is usually fifteen digits long and is divided into sectors that provide information about the mobile phone, such as, the mobile network company the mobile phone is connected to. The IMEI codes of the stolen devices are blacklisted so that the phone cannot be used after the theft.
