Every handset has a built-in IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identification) number or ESN (Electronic Serial Number), the phone's unique I.D, normally a 15 digit code. It is usually manually displayed on the box of every new cell phone and can also be found on a label, displayed on the rear inside the phone, behind the battery. With most handsets the IMEI can be retrieved by typing the following code on the keypad: *#06#
