Getting an IMEI from an iPhone 4 serial number
January 12, 2013 10:05 PM Subscribe
My iPhone 4 was stolen. The police detectives want the IMEI number. I never backed up the phone or synced it to my computer, so I can't access the IMEI through iTunes. I don't have the original packaging. I do, however, have the phone's serial number. Is there a way to somehow use this number to get the IMEI?

was able to do so. The fact that he or she never revealed his or her method makes me think it's not easy to do legally or with publicly available tools.
