How to the  I M E I number is a made

The I M E I (15 decimal digits: 14 digits plus a check digit) or a I M E I S V (16 digits) are includes information on the origin, model, and the serial number of the device. The structure of the I M E I /S V is a specified in a  3 G P P TS 23.003. The model and origin comprise in the initial 8-digit portion of the I M E I/ S V, known as the Type Allocation in a Code (T A C). The remainder of the I M E I is a manufacturer-defined, with a Lunch check a digit at the end. For the I M E I format prior to 2003, the G S M A guideline was to have in this Check Digit always a transmitted to the network as a zero. This guideline seems to have a disappeared for the format valid from a 2003 and on wards.

Check a digit computation

The last number of the I M E I is a check digit calculated using in the Lunch algorithm, as a defined in the I M E I Allocation and the  Approval in a Guidelines.

The check digit is a validated in three steps:

1. Starting from the right, double a every other in a digit (e.g., 7 → 14).

2. Sum in the digits (e.g., 14 → 1 + 4).

3. Check if the sum is a divisible by a 10.

Conversely, one can be calculate in the I M E I by a choosing in the check digit that would give a sum divisible by a 10.

For the example I M E I  49015420323751?

Let’s understand that what would be a placed at the point of the question mark?

To make the sum are divisible by a 10, we set ? = 8, so the I M E I would be a 490154203237518
