IMEI / serial of stolen phone - any thoughts?

    webwude , Jan 5, 2015 :
    Hi all,

    my phone was stolen / lost on new years eve - now I would like to place an inquiry at the local found+lost office in order to retrieve it in case it will be found (I know only a small chance, but nevertheless).

    Therefore I need a serial number / IMEI of the phone. Unfortunately I have not noted any number of it.
    Is it possible to retrieve the serial number / IMEI from the support - do they have the number based on my order? Are there other possibilities (I still have a full backup of Titanium backup of my phone - is it possible to retrieve the imei from there)?

    Any hint will be highly appreciated.
    Best regards
    Michael

    I think customer support would be able to provide you with the IMEI if you are the original buyer from OP.

    If you still have your retail packaging, then you can find IMEI written there. If not, try contacting support.

    You can track the phone yourself using your CyanogenMod profile or Google profile just FYI.

    I think the IMEI is printed on the phone packaging as well.

    IMEI is stored in a complete CWM/TWRP backup in the EFS section i believe.
    So its possible that you have it.

    Just go to Google Dashboard then check android devices .

    Like everyone has said, I believe you can find the IMEI on the original "screen protector" when you opened the phone for the first time. I lost my phone just before New Year's, whilst on vacation; I feel you. Sorry for your loss. I ended up buying a new one just because how invested I was with this phone (accessories, etc.). Good luck!

    Just checked the packaging of my OnePlus and it has the IMEI printed in the reverse side of the white enclosure that surrounds the red box which contains the device. (Mine is the International version. If yours is Chinese, this might be different)

    It is on the box indeed - I already found it. Nevertheless I guess the phone is gone :( I already ordered a new one (see signature).

    Thank you for your answers...
