If you call your service provider, and if they ask you to verify your account, you will have to provide the IMEI and the serial number of your phone as a part of the verification. IMEI and Serial number (SN) is unique for every phone and used as an identity of the phones.

IMEI number is very helpful in case you lost your Galaxy S5 and if you provide this info to your service provider, they can block your phone using this number.

  1. I second Amber and Robbie on this. Mine is a Verizon version and I can not find the serial number with info above nor any info apps that I have installed, maybe five at this point. Maybe it is just Verizon s5’s with the elusive serial number.

  2. So where do I find the Serial Number on the box? None of the stuff on there is labeled as a serial number. Got IMEI, SW-Ver, SIM SKU, ICCID but no S/N.

  3. This post is incorrect and completely useless. It should be deleted and the author sent back to “tech writer” training for having zero experience with the tech to be written about.

  4. FYI neither the “dial the code” nor the “via the settings menu” actually work for obtaining the serial number on this model device.
