Why you need to know IMEI

Most mobile phone users use the gadget for the entire life cycle, and maybe even their own life, and do not even suspect that there is a certain code and that it is needed for something. This is usually the way it should be. But not in Russia. A few reasons why you need to know IMEI:

• when buying a used phone, so as not to slip a fake or blacklisted phone;
• if the smartphone was stolen, IMEI is the only identifier by which it can be tracked;
• in order to unlock the phone, including remotely using Internet services;

Mobile operators use IMEI for other purposes. To control customer movements. Many phones, especially in the United States and Europe, are sold locked to a specific operator or region. If you decide to use a smartphone designed to work in the US networks, then in Russia, most likely it will be turned off right away, as it appears on the MTS network, and possibly does not see the network at all. To make the phone work, you need to unlock it. For iPhone, this can be done legally only two years after activation.
