Samsung Galaxy Note 8 devices, just like any other smartphone, come with their own IMEI numbers. Every one of them has it, your brand-new device included, which means that you are required, as its owner, to know this number and to be able to access it whenever it is necessary.
The thing is, however, that many owners don’t even know what the IMEI number is, not to mention where to find it and why they need it. So, if we are to come up with one succinct definition, it will be a comparison – think of it as to a serial number identification code. The one piece of information that helps you correctly identify your Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
We know, the 16-digit IMEI number is hard to know by heart, which is why you will have to write it down. But first, let’s share with you a few details about it and show you how to get it.
The International Mobile Station Equipment Identity – shortly put, IMEI – is a unique number for every device out there. GSM networks use it to check if the devices associated to it are valid and if they aren’t blacklisted or stolen. Checking the IMEI number with Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T etc. will give you the guarantee that your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is perfectly usable. In order to make that check, you have to know the IMEI. And you have three different ways to do so.
- You can spot the IMEI code right on the packaging of the smartphone. If you still have it around, check the box and you won’t have a hard time finding that sticker with the 16-digit code.
- You can discover the IMEI code from the Android system settings. If you access the Device Information section, at Status, you’ll find this entry among many others.
- Last but not least, you can get your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 IMEI code by dialing *#06# right on your Dial pad. The code will just be displayed on the screen.
Now you have all the information, so, you’d better start using it. No excuses for not knowing the IMEI of your Galaxy Note 8, from now on!
