How to Determine Your Motorola Model by the ID Tag
By G.S. Jackson
When purchasing a phone you want to make sure you know what you are getting. If you have a phone you like but don't know the make or model of the phone you can determine this by looking up the Serial or IMEI numbers. In Motorola phones, dial a special number to get this information and then enter it into a phone database to retrieve the model name.
Dial *#06# in the phone and press the "Send" button. The phone sends back the serial and IMEI information.
Enter the Serial/MSN or the IMEI number into the "Identify Your Mobile Phone" website in the corresponding text boxes (link in Resources).
Click the "Search" button.
Note the model of the phone. This is your Motorola phone type.
