    RE: Model number from IMEI number

    Srini,

    if the question means if you can access IMEI number in any way from the Java side the answer is: no, you can't.

    Kind regards,

    Re: Model number from IMEI number

    I think I have the same question, and so far I was not able to find any answer on this forum.

    The question is: Given an IMEI number, can I somehow figure out the phone's model number (the manufacturer part has be explained all over the place and on the web) in my Java code?

    There are web sites that when you give them an IMEI they will tell you the model number, but this is NOT what I want.

    Thanks.

    The manufacturer might encode the model number in the IMEI (TAC part), but in order to track that, you'd have to get such mapping tables from the manufacturer (unless you only track older devices):
