Default CDMA, IMEI or ESN #

Please Login to Remove!

1st post from a BB nooB!

When tring to buy software at Handango, the shopping cart asks for the IMEI number. Am I correct in thinking that CDMA (Verizon) devices have a 'ESN' number, not a IMEI number?

Check Settings/Options-Status on your device , if there is a phone part on the blackberry device there will be a IMEI number

Contrare, CDMA units do have an ESN instead of a IMEI number. After posting the original message I received a reply from Handango.com. They're changing their site/shopping cart to accommodate the CDMA ESN number.

From my small amount of noOb knowledge it seems that IMEI=GSM & ESN=CDMA network.
