Q: How do I find out the IMEI number of my phone?

A: Type *#06# into your phone and the number will appear on your screen. For some Blackberry phones, you may have to get the IMEI number by going to "options" then "status" in the menu. On Sidekick / Hiptop phones, the IMEI number may also be found on the backside of the screen. For unlocking, it is always better to get the IMEI number from within phone's software rather than by checking under the battery.
