Basic Mobile Trick IMEI

The International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI)
The IMEI number is used by the GSM network to identify valid devices and therefore can be used to stop a stolen phone from accessing the network in that country. For example, if a mobile phone is stolen, the owner can call his or her network provider and instruct them to *ban* the phone using its IMEI number. This renders the phone useless in that country, whether or not the phones SIM is changed. However, the phone can be used abroad.
To check IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) for any mobile or cellular phone.
On the main screen type *#06#
Copy the IMEI number, it will be either 14 digit number or may even be a latest 16 digit number which would have extra two digits at the end of the number such a reformed number is called IMEISV (IMEI Software Version).
The IMEI number can be divided in the format AA-BBBBBB-CCCCCC-D and for IMEISV it will be AA-BBBBBB-CCCCCC-EE.
The codes are explained as follows
AA: Reporting Body Identifier, indicating the GSMA-approved group that allocated the model TAC
BBBBBB: The remainder of the TAC
CCCCCC: Serial sequence of the model
D: Luhn check digit of the entire number (or zero)
EE: Software Version Number (SVN).

TAC = Type Allocation Code

IMEI is very important number for the following reasons:
1)To verify that the bought mobile phone is the same that was packaged. IMEI number is printed on the mobile carton and should be verified not just by pressing the *#06# keys but also the printed number behind below the battery, this protects against counterfeiting.
2)A target for lawful interception (wiretapping) can be specified by its IMEI number as well as IMSI and MSISDN, which means that calls originating from a single mobile device even after changing SIM cards can be traced.
3)Stolen mobile phones can be rendered useless.
