    RE: model number from IMEI number

    These may give you a hint:

    http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/I/IMEI.html
    http://www.accesscomms.com.au/imei.htm

    Based on these, test your algorithm with a few phone and may be able to make difference between different models(TACs) with a good accuracy.

    Re: model number from IMEI number

    Hi,


    I have some information, it may helf you...

    Retrieving the device IMEI code

    The IMEI, short for International Mobile Equipment Identity, is a unique number given to every single mobile phone [1]. It is not modifiable by the user and a written copy of it can typically found behind the battery. It can also be displayed on screen by entering the *#06# key sequence.
    Depending on your mobile, this number can have two different formats (the old and the new format:
    aabbbb-cc-dddddd-e if your mobile has been manufactured before April 1st 2004.
    xxxxxxxx-dddddd-e if your mobile has been manufactured after this date.

    The old IMEI format
    The format aabbbb-cc-dddddd-e was in use until April 1st 2004. Its meaning is:
    aabbbb is the Type Approval Code (TAC). The first two digits (aa) represent the country code.
    The second group of numbers (cc) is the Final Assembly Code (FAC). This identifies the device manufacturer [2]:
    01,02 = AEG 60 = Alcatel
    07,40 = Motorola 61 = Ericsson

    10,20 = Nokia 65 = AEG
    30 = Ericsson 70 = Sagem
    40,41,44 = Siemens
    75 = Dancall
    50 = Bosch 80 = Philips
    51 = Sony, Siemens, Ericsson 85 = Panasonic
    dddddd represents the device serial number (SNR)
    the last single digit (e) is an check digit (usually set to 0).

    The new IMEI format
    The new format xxxxxxxx-dddddd-e is used since 1st April 2004. The FAC value has disappeared and the Type Approval Code has been be replaced by a Type Allocation Code (TAC in both cases):
    xxxxxxxx is a eight digit number: the Type Allocation Code.
    dddddd and e have the same meaning as in the old format.

    The IMEISV format
    You may have two extra digits at the end of the IMEI. IN this case, these two additional numbers reflects the software version number of your phone. You can check in ETSI specs 02.16 and 03.03 if you need to have more details.

    Re: model number from IMEI number

    Also very helpful for looking up TACs, and probably even more up-to-date, because it is part of an official document:

    Exclamation Re: model number from IMEI number

    I would discourage anyone to post the IMEI of his phone onto various unknown / untrusted websites. It allows them to use the IMEI for a series of illegal activities (like replacing the blocked IMEI of a stolen phone with yours). Please keep in mind that the IMEI of your phone is a sensitive information, almost like your credit card number.

    Re: model number from IMEI number

    CTelephony yields nice data, among of which the model, imei, manufacturer, etc.
    For example you might check CTelephony::GetPhoneId()
