Stolen Phone - How do I get the IMEI no?

Hi everyone.

 

I've had my blackberry since August of 2010. I learnt as much as I could and there was still much more to learn! About a month ago my phone was stolen from my home. The police are working on tracking it but....IT'S BEEN A MONTH!

 

Recently I was made to understand that there is a number under the battery that can be used to track the black berry even if it is off. My question is: since I no longer have the BB in my possession is there a way for me to get that number?

 

Thanks much!

IF Digicel is willing to track it with the IMEI, yes. Not all mobile providers will do this.

 

So, your IMEI is also listed on the white label on the original box the device came in, if you still have that.

AND, Digicel should have record or your IMEI in your account.

Sorry, it is not possible for you to do so. The mobile phone carrier or a law enforcement agency may be able to do so.
