Finding the ESN / IMEI / MEID tied to your device depends a lot on the device itself.

In many cases, you can find the device identifier in any of the following ways:

  • On a sticker behind the device's battery
  • Via software on the "About" screen
  • On the device's box

Please note that in some instances, such as a for a replaced device, the ESN on the box may not match the ESN of the device. Swappa always asks for the ESN tied to the device.

If you're unable to locate your specific device's ESN, simply do a quick Google search for your device. Example: "Where can I locate the IMEI of my Galaxy S9?"
