Finding the identification number of your device
Your device has a unique ID (identification) number. In your device, 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 and need 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.

- If a memory card is inserted in your device, unmount the memory card or turn off the device, then remove the memory card.
- Insert the tip of an unfolded paper clip (or a similar object with a long, fine tip) into the groove in the label tray and then drag out the tray. The IMEI number is displayed on the tray.
