    Smile Re: The IMEI number

    Hi Symbian60...

    The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) .. to identify an individual mobile station to a GSM or UMTS network. The IMEI number facilitates an important function; it easily identifies a mobile phone being used on a GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) network.... is a useful tool to stop a phone that is stolen from accessing a network and being used.
    With an IMEI number, the phone can be banned from the network quickly and easily. It is important to note that swapping a SIM card will not stop a phone from being banned.

    An IMEI device is only used to identify the device and does not usually relate to a specific individual or organization. Other numbers such as Electronic Serial Numbers and MEID Mobile Equipment Identifiers can link an individual to a phone. Usually, an IMSI number stored on a SIM card can identify the subscriber on a network....
    so dont try to change it ...it is not possible ..

    Regards,
    Parag Purkar

    Re: The IMEI number

    To answer the original question: The IMEI is stored in a special write-once chip (the so called UEM chip) so it will persist among reflashes.

    If you have any problem with your phone I'd suggest you get to the nearest Nokia Service Point.

    Hi!

    U can use HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer )too..Its very easy to use.

    TInt machineID;
    HAL::Get(HAL::EMachineUid, machineID);
    machineID wil be in decimal system.
