Phone: Motorola i860 Q & A

Where is the ESN (Electronic Serial Number) on an Motorola i860?

Answer question
Question asked by tipsu21
I need the ESN to file a claim for my insurence, but I don't know which number I need. Is it the IMEI, IC, FCC ID, or SN (the SN only has 10 digits to it, so I don't think it the SN). They say it's 11-15 digits long, and I don't know which one is the correct one. A little help please.

ESN-The unique identification number embedded in a wireless phone by the manufacturer. Each time a call is placed, the ESN is automatically transmitted to the base station so the wireless carrier's mobile switching office can check the call's validity. The ESN cannot easily be altered in the field. The ESN differs from the mobile identification number, which is the wireless carrier's identifier for a phone in the network. MINs and ESNs can be electronically checked to help prevent fraud. The IMEI is the number you need. From Motorola:
In order to be eligible to receive warranty service, you must present your receipt of purchase or a comparable substitute proof of purchase bearing the date of purchase. The phone should also clearly display the original compatible electronic serial number (IMEI) and mechanic serial number [MSN]. Such information is contained with the Product.
