How Do I Find IMEI Number On Nexus 5X?

For those that own a Nexus 5X, you may want to know how you can find the IMEI on the Nexus 5X. The reason why the IMEI is important is because the IMEI number is a serial number that will allow the smartphone to be identified correctly. For those that don’t have an amazing memory, it’s recommended that you write down the IMEI of your Nexus 5X after the purchase. This will allow you to prove that you own the smartphone in case the Nexus 5X gets stolen and you want to retrieve it back.

The IMEI or International Mobile Station Equipment Identity is a unique number for each device to identify it. The IMEI number is used by GSM networks to check if devices are valid and the Nexus 5X is not stolen or blacklisted. Completing an IMEI number check for Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile will make sure that Nexus 5X is usable. The IMEI number of your Nexus 5X can be found with this three methods:


Find out the IMEI via the Android system

To find the Nexus 5X IMEI from the phone itself, you need to first turn on the Nexus 5X. Then once you have gotten to the home screen, go to the phone settings. Then select on “Device Information”, and click on “Status”. Here you can see various information entries of your Nexus 5X. One of them is “IMEI”. You’re now seeing your IMEI serial number.
