At some point or the other, we have lost or been worried about losing our phone. It is impossible to find a phone without GPS location, net connection, or SIM card, right? Yet, there is another interesting and easy way to track your lost phone – IEMI number.
International Mobile Equipment Identity or IEMI is a 15-17-digit code that comes with every phone – Android and iOS. One can trace a lost phone through IEMI number with the help of CEIR (Central Equipment Identity Register) online portal. The CEIR is a site by the Indian Government, which is associated with the Department of Telecom (DoT), and the Center for Development Telematics (CDOT).
An IMEI number can be found at the back side of a smartphone, it will either be below the battery or on the box of the handset. In addition, the IEMI can also be used even if the SIM card has been changed.
The best part about IEMI numbers is that it can never be changed, even if the SIM is changed or GPS tracking is turned off.
