Looking for IMEI database

    Hi all,

    As you may know, the IMEI format is XXXXXX-YY-ZZZZZZ-A, where the first 6 digits (XXXXXX) is called TAC (type allocation number), and the next 2 digits is FAC (final assembly number). Based on TAC, we can determine the phone model. And from FAC, we can know the country of origin.

    For example, if the IMEI is 350880-30-123456-7, then from TAC=350880 we know this is “Nokia 6800”, and from FAC=10 we know this phone is made in Korea.

    I am looking for such IMEI database. If you know where I can get it, plz let me know.

    My email:

    Sorry, FAC=30 then the phone is made in Korea.
    If the FAC=10 then the country of origin is Finland.

    Anyone has any idea?

    Be carefull using the IMEI. The IMEI structure has been changing. The last chab¿nged was for 1/1 2003, but there was a transition period between from 1/1 2003 to 31/3 2004.
    Present structure of IMEI:
    IMEI is today defined as TAC, FAC and serial number. TAC and FAC is assigned by a reporting body (Cetecom). FAC is then also partly controlled by SEMC since it’s related per production site.

    New structure of IMEI:
    The new structure is valid from 1/1 2003.
    IMEI will be defined in the following fields

    Type Allocation Code, TAC 8 digits
    Each type of phone is assigned to one or several TAC depending on the number of produced units.
    A major change to a type requires a new TAC assignment.

    TAC is divided into two groups, NN, XXXXYY.
    NN is the reporting body identifier (Cetecom)
    XXXXYY is running numbers assigned per type. YY has a special meaning during the transition period.

    Transition period
    Runs from 1/1 2003 to 31/3 2004.
    During this time reporting body assigns new TAC as defined below but with YY set to 00. The running number on TAC will then be:
    NN123400, NN123500, NN123600
    Starting from 1/4 2004 the running numbers will be NN123400, NN123401……

    Thank you so much Justin

    Thank you so much Justin,

    Yes I have known the website you said but according to the FAC in my 7250, it is 40 then the phone was made in China.
    More, in the IMEI analyzer tool you advise, it does not state the authentic manufacture. So I am still in doubt about my phone despite it operates beautifully.

    Best regards,
