My Samsung S5 mini was stolen and I now need the IMEI number. How do i get this without the phone?


You should be able to get this information from your network provider as they will have a list of IMEI numbers that have been used by your sim card depending on the system that their customer care is using. They may need to contact a higher department in order to get this information for you.

Do you still have the packaging for the phone? The IMEI number should be printed on the packaging.

Alternatively if you used a Google account on your device, you can get it from accessing the dashboard and going down to Android. Your IMEI should be displayed there.


IMEI number is also available on the bottom of the box in which you have received you phone.


Look on the original box of your phone. There you should find the IMEI number on a sticker. Good luck with finding your phone :-)

However you can also go to https://www.google.com/settings/dashboard and login with the account used on your phone and then go to 'Android'. There you will see all your Android devices and you IMEI numbers.
