Hi, guys - Anyone know how to get the serial numbers for iphones if they are not activated?
The serial numbers are printed on the sim tray.
Or dial that number on the emergency phone call screen and hit call *#06#
I have two iPhones (both 5S), and neither have the serial number (or any other info) printed or engraved on the SIM tray.
After checking my collection of iPhones, the SIM trays for iPhone 5S, 5 an 4S do not have any printing. The iPhone 4 does.
How about the imei's instead? They are on the back of each phone.
They wanted the serial number. Something about that's their policy.
Thanks for the suggestions. The *#06# trick only gives the IMEI which is printed on the back of the phone anyway.
Anyway, my brother found out he could do it this way... he plugged each iPhone into his MBP and after iTunes opened, he held down Ctrl and clicked Help, then About iTunes. A small screen pops up and the IMEI and serial numbers eventually scroll past.
I think they stopped printing them on the sim tray after the 5S and have them in the back instead.
But the IMEI is just as good as the serial identifier.
Try this web site, it will tell you the serial# http://iunlocker.net/check_imei.php
