Default Blackberry IMEI

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, please can somebody tell me if you can get an IMEI from the device pin or serial number of a blackberry 8320. Reason is I had my blackberry lost but did not have the IMEI. I found the device pin and the pin which the device manager used to detect when I connected the mobile. I need the IMEI to hand it over to the police for investigations, and because I had some important information on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

nope. Only from the original sticker on the box, by typing a code into the phone, or the sticker under the battery.

The carrier may have it on your account, so check with them.

Also, if you had insurance on the device then the insurance company can tell you the last IMEI registered on their system. I have used this option once

You cannot generate an IMEI and PIN. They are assigned to each specific device and hardcoded infor the firmware. Any attempt at changing is illegal.
