    Hey all,

    Is there anyway I can grab the iPhone Device ID on a windows machine without using iTunes? I entered in the wrong ID and now won't let me activate phone (or re-access the Device ID through iTunes).

    Is the only option using xCode?

    The UUID? You can grab this app directly on your iPhone

    It's free, tells your device id.

    I believe that you can use the iPhone configuration tool (Mac/PC) to get the UUID. I had the same thing happen to me and thats how I was able to find it.

    Plug it in and look at the USB id in Windows control panel or OSX system profiler. It's the device id.

    Ah shoot, I'm having trouble finding it in the device manager for Windows. Bit tied up right now. Someone else help, please?

    I went into App > Utilities > System Profiler - look at the USB property, found the iPhone and the serial number is the ID.

    If anyone else is interested - the backup folder for your iPhone is named with the UDID (in mac anyway) - an easy way to find it if you need it and don't have the iPhone plugged in.

    Wow, this helped me a ton. I jumped the gun downloading and installing the 3.0 beta and got stuck when it asked for my UDID. THANKS!!!

    Hey Guys just thought Id put in my bit to help out.

    Had the same problem today and the instructions here helped but they werent clear.

    Basically to find the UUID,
    - Plug the iPhone into computer
    - Open the Device Manager
    - Expand portable devices, you should see Apple Mobile Device USB Driver
    - Right click and select Properties
    - Select the Details tab
    - Click the drop down menu, scroll down and select Device Instance Path
    - The Number after the backslash is the UUID

    Right click the value, copy and paste it into a text editior then select everything after the last backslash, its 40 digits and paste that into the website.

    Hope this helps!
