When I first saw it, I thought it is just a series of meaningless numbers. For many of us, we are not aware what is IMEI for. Store resellers are very much familiar with IMEI. IMEI is very important for them because they can use as their basis in how much they will buy your 2nd hand mobile phone or if it’s still in good condition to be bought.

How do mobile phone resellers here in the Philippines use this IMEI information?

- Get your mobile phone.
- Dial #*06#, the IMEI or serial number will appear in the screen.
- Count the 7th and 8th digit of the IMEI of your mobile phone, start from the left.

This two digits are your clues on where your mobile phone is made of.

If your digits are:

00 - the phone was made from the original factory of the brand of your mobile phone and is considered as the best quality.

01 or 10 – the phone was made from Finland and is considered to have good quality.

08 or 80 – the phone was made from Germany and is considered to have fair quality.

02 or 20 – the phone was made from Emirates and is considered to have a bad quality.

13 or 31 or 03 or 30 – the phone is made from China and is considered to have the worst quality.
