IMEI means International Mobile Equipment Identity. It is a 15-digit number and may be found in the packet of the mobile phone. It may also be found by removing the back cover and it may be placed on the battery sticker.

If you lose your IMEI number then you can find it by typing *#06# on your mobile screen. After pressing this code, you will see a 15-digit number immediately on the screen which is called IMEI number.

The number might be as below:

3 6 9 3 9 5 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Now look at the 7th and 8th digit. These two digits will ensure your phone’s quality!

If the seventh and eighth digits are 02 or 20 this indicates your cell phone is assembled in Emirates which is very poor quality. (NB: Some Indian sets have this number)

If the seventh and eighth digits are 08 or 80 this indicates your cell phone is manufactured in Germany which is fair quality.

If the seventh and eighth digits are 01 or 10 this indicates your cell phone is manufactured in Finland which is high quality.

If the seventh and eighth digits are 00 this indicates your cell phone is manufactured in Original Factory which ensures the best quality.

If the seventh and eighth digits are either 03/30 or 04/40, this indicates your phone is made in China but its quality is good. But not good either as 00, 01 or 10.

If the seventh and eighth digits are 05 or 50 this indicates your cell phone is manufactured either in Brazil or USA or Finland.

If the seventh and eighth digits are 06 or 60 this indicates your cell phone is manufactured either in Hong Kong, or China or Mexico.

If the seventh and eighth digits are 13 this indicates your cell phone is assembled in Azerbaijan which is too bad. And it is also dangerous for health!

Though the above information has been collected from very reliable sources, 1 or 2 of them may slightly vary.
