    Sorry for the dodgy question. My iPhone 5 has just arrived and I need to send an official document to my phone insurance company which contains the IMEI, and I can't find one. Can anyone advise the best way to sort this out? I'm based in the UK.

    Plug it into iTunes and look under Info and it will show the IMEI

    Thanks for the reply Howard. I can find what it is, but the company needs a document of it written rather than me just telling them it.

    Use google search next time but ill be a chap and help you out

    Settings > General > About and you IMEI number is right there almost on the bottom of the page.

    Ask them if a screen shoot would work at proper documentation.

    As I say, Minkx, I know how to find the IMEI. When I had a replacement phone from the Apple Store, that receipt had the IMEI on it, so I was fine to show that to my insurance company. I guess I will go with the screenshot, as I already thought that's the only thing I can do myself. If that doesn't work, I will have to try and contact Apple CS to see if they can send me something out.
