What is an IMEI?
The IMEI (i.e. International Mobile Equipment Identity) number is used by a GSM network to recognize devices trying to connect to them and therefore may be used for stopping a stolen phone from accessing that network.
It is only used for identifying the device and does not have any permanent or semi-permanent connection with the subscriber. The IMEI number includes information on the source, version, and the serial number of the device.
What is a phone unlock code?
An Unlock Code is a numeric string. When entered into a locked handset it releases the SIM lock restriction and allows the handset to be used on other GSM carriers.
