IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) is the identification number assigned to a device within a mobile network.
IMEI’s are how mobile carriers keep track of every device on their network. If a device is stolen or lost, carriers use the device’s IMEI to block it from making/receiving calls and connecting to a cellular network, even if the device has a new SIM card.
IMEI used in a sentence:
One of our buildings was broken into and a few employee cell phones were stolen. Luckily our mobile carrier could blacklist the phones from future use based on their IMEI’s!
