How do I find the IMEI?

Greetings,

 

My first PlayBook didn't recognize a SIM card, so I sent it back. BlackBerry has sent me a new PlayBook, but the box is generic, and doesn't list the IMEI number on the outside, like my original black box did. How do I find the IMEI number on my 4G LTE PlayBook?

 

Thanks,

Shane.

I found it under the SIM card tray. It doesn't appear to be listed anywhere in the software.

 

Thanks,

Shane.

Re: How do I find the IMEI?

You can find the IMEI by tapping settings > About > Hardware.

 

If you don't see it, make sure you have the latest OS (2.1.0.1917).

Re: How do I find the IMEI?

  1. Can you confirm that you have the LTE PlayBook?
  2. Is the SIM card inserted?
  3. Do you have a mobile network connection?

Yes I have 4G LTE. the SIM is inserted and recognised. I am unable to connect to my service provider. when i connect my playbook to desktop manager I could see IMEI number and interestingly it is shown as 10 digits.

Well, I'm not sure.

 

If you are able to connect to your service providor, maybe the IMEI will show up?
