Discover Your Phone’s Essential Numbers

Get the model number, serial number, and firmware version number of your smartphone. You will need them in future hacks.

In “Choose the Right Phone for the Network” [Hack #1] and “Pick the Right Class of Nokia Phone” [Hack #2] , I discussed how to map Nokia smartphone models to wireless networks and Nokia device series. But what if you already own a Nokia phone? How do you determine its model number? How do you find out other crucial information about your phone that is useful in more advanced hacks? Well, read on.

The Model Number

Nokia smartphones are identified by cryptic model numbers, such as Nokia 6600, 6230, 3650, etc. Do you know which phone you own? Well, it’s actually easy to find out your model number, even if you lost the original packaging box and order receipt. First, power off your phone, and then open the back cover of the device and remove the battery. You can read the Nokia model number off the white label (see Figure 1-5). Make a note of this number, as you will need to refer to it when applying hacks discussed throughout this book.
