Finding the identification number of your device
Your device has a unique identification number. This number is referred to as the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity). You should keep a copy of this number. You may require it, for example, when you access the Xperia™ Care support service to register your device. Also, if your device is stolen, some network providers can use this number to stop the device from accessing the network in your country or region.

- Detach the memory card slot cover.
- Insert the tip of an unfolded paper clip (or a similar object with a long, fine tip) into the hole in the label tray, then drag the tray outwards. The IMEI number is displayed on the tray.
To view the IMEI number, you can also open the phone dialer and enter *#06#.
