    Finding the model number and name when the device is off

    To find the IMEI number when the device is off

    1. Most newer Xperia devices have the IMEI number inside the SIM card slot on a label tray. Depending on the device model, you may have to remove the SIM cardholder to access the label tray. Some models have the IMEI number inside the memory card slot. Use your fingernail or an unfolded paper clip (or similar) to drag the label tray outwards. Other models, with a removable back cover, have the IMEI number on the device under the back cover.
    2. If you can't find the IMEI number, you can look for the name of the product on the box that the device came in or on the receipt or invoice that you received from the original vendor. The name of the device is also printed on the cover of the Startup guide that came with the device.
