  • How To Find The ESN, IMEI Or MEID On Your BlackBerry Smartphone


    Have you ever wondered what the acronyms ESN, IMEI or MEID actually mean and what they are used for? One thing for sure that they have in common is the ability to identify networks. A good analogy is to think of them like your home address. The number is unique to your home, and to have a letter delivered, the sender must print it on the envelope.

    Whether your BlackBerry has an ESN, IMEI or MEID depends on the model of your device and the mobile network it was designed for. To learn more about these unique identifying numbers and what they each represent, check out the document KB04665 in the BlackBerry Knowledge Base.

    The InsideBB Help Blog has written a nice quick tutorial on how to find these numbers, just in case you ever need them to connect properly to your carriers network. Check it out below:

    Finding the ESN, IMEI or MEID in Options

    Something to keep in mind is that regardless of whether a BlackBerry smartphone has an ESN, IMEI or MEID, each can be found in two different locations on a BlackBerry smartphone. Before you can find the ESN, IMEI or MEID in options, you first have to know which version of BlackBerry software your device is running.

    BlackBerry® 6 & BlackBerry® 7 OS

    1. From the Home screen or from within a folder, select “Options”
    2. Select “Device” and then “Device Status Information”



    BlackBerry® Device Software 5.0 and below


    1. From the Home screen or from within a folder select “Options”
    2. Select “Status”

    How to locate the ESN, IMEI or MEID sticker

    1. Remove the battery from a BlackBerry smartphone
    2. The ESN, IMEI or MEID is located on the sticker under the battery
