You're going to turn it around wherever the battery is. You're going to remove the battery cover. Sometimes, there's a button. Sometimes you can just slide it off. You're going to remove the battery, very carefully and your IMEI number is going to be right there on the top, that top bar code right there. And it's got a pretty long string of numbers there.
