    IMEI numbers

    Does anybody know if there is a publically available allocation table describing IMEI number ranges and Phone types?

    TIA for any help

    IMEI can be ivewed by pressing *#06#

    The first 6 digits are the Type Approval Code.
    The next 2 digits are the Final Assembly Code.
    The next 6 digits are the Serial Number.

    If there is another single digit left it is a check digit. Not all phones display it. It just makes sure the IMEI is valid.

    IMEI Numbers

    Cool, I take it there isn't a database relating the Type approval code to manufacturer ID? (or even better handset type).

    Re: IMEI numbers

    I found this thread because I was looking for the exact same thing .. since I found something (even though this is a really old thread) figured I'd post it

    There's a really really good list, maintained a bit available at

    http://www.nobbi.com/ from the TAC-Datenbank link

    (full list at http://www.nobbi.com/tacdb.php?searc...ortby=t&lang=1 )

    If you want the complete and upto date list, I think you've to subscribe to the auth body for something like $15,000 a year or something (ripoff?)
