What  is IMEI??
The location of manufacture is not encoded into the IMEI number, Nokia doesn't even create the numbers - they receive them from an external industry regulatory body. The details for all IMEIs since 1st Jan 2004 are as follows:

  • The first two digits (theoretically) represent the national association which issued the number, though in practice the worldwide GSM Association now issues all IMEIs. The first two digits '35' (theoretically) indicate the British Approvals Board of Telecommunications, though all IMEIs in the world currently begin 35...
  • The next six digits represent the device type (640602 is a Nokia N96, 808201 is a Nokia N82; 908801 is a Sony Ericsson K800i etc.) - this and the first two digits together are known as the Type Allocation Code (TAC).
  • The next six digits are the individual device's unique serial number
  • The final digit is a check-digit.
