IMEI number can also be found under the phone settings.

An alternate way is to use Google Settings Dashboard where you can get IMEI number of all the devices you have linked to the Google Account. It is very useful if you don’t have the mobile with you.

Google settings can be accessed from a browser. No matter if you are on desktop or mobile, you can get IMEI number either way.

4) On the SIM tray

Usually, IMEI number is printed on SIM tray and in most cases you will find IMEI number on SIM tray. If you somehow do not find it on the tray, you can opt out to use other methods I have shown.


5) By removing back cover

Smartphones have built-in battery these days and hence, you cannot remove back cover. However, there are still some phones available that come with a removable battery.

On removing the back cover, you will find IMEI number under the battery. Some phones have a removable back cover but do not have a removable battery like on the ASUS Zenfones but if you look closely on the SIM slots, you can get IMEI from there.
