What is an IMEI number?

Aimed at:  Edinburgh Napier’s staff and students

An IMEI is a chain of 15 digits, it uniquely identifies mobile phones.

Every mobile phone has one and they're all unique to every manufactured mobile phone. For example if a factory creates 1000 iPhones of the same model in one day, then they've also produced 1000 different IMEIs.
