Does anybody know if there is a publically available allocation table describing IMEI number ranges and Phone types?
TIA for any help
IMEI can be ivewed by pressing *#06#
The first 6 digits are the Type Approval Code.
The next 2 digits are the Final Assembly Code.
The next 6 digits are the Serial Number.
If there is another single digit left it is a check digit. Not all phones display it. It just makes sure the IMEI is valid.
Cool, I take it there isn't a database relating the Type approval code to manufacturer ID? (or even better handset type).
Type Approval Codes From IMEI
I have done a bit of searching and here is a (probbaly incomplete) table of the TAC so far.
Does anyone have the TAC for Sendo phones for example or any others????
Re: IMEI numbers
I found this thread because I was looking for the exact same thing .. since I found something (even though this is a really old thread) figured I'd post it
There's a really really good list, maintained a bit available at
http://www.nobbi.com/ from the TAC-Datenbank link
(full list at http://www.nobbi.com/tacdb.php?searc...ortby=t&lang=1 )
If you want the complete and upto date list, I think you've to subscribe to the auth body for something like $15,000 a year or something (ripoff?)
