Hi AnAkin,

I did not completely understand your question. Do you want to check the IMEI entered against the IMEI against the
phone connected to your PC or is it something else ?

Just let me know a little more about what you are trying to do.

Cheers.

i have seen that some simlock applications have IMEI check. I don't want to have a moile connected to the computer. There is something like checking if IMEI is valid just by counting IMEI checksum...

Does this look like something of use to you.

By the way the IMEI/IMEISV is predefined by the ETSI and have a specific format in which it should be present.
If that is what you want, then you could find the spec at www.3gpp.org

This is the spec for the Check Digit computation.

ok i think that is what i was looking for. but i still don't understand one thing:
IMEI: 351462809239889

Sum = 3 + 1 + 0 + 1 + 8 + 6 + 4 + 8 + 0 + 9 + 4 + 3 + 1 + 8 + 8 + 1 + 6 = 71
So, 80 - 71 = 9

But what does it mean, that the sum equals 9?
How do i know IMEI is valid?

so...

<?php

    function imeiChecksum($imei) {

        if (strlen($imei) != 15) return False;
        $checksum = 0;
        for ($nr = 0; $nr < 14; $nr++) {
            if ($nr % 2 == 0) $checksum += $imei{$nr}; else {
                $nr2 = $imei{$nr} * 2;
                $checksum += ($nr2 % 10) + (int)($nr2 / 10);
            }
        }
        $nr = ($checksum{1} != '0') ? (int)(($checksum / 10)+1) * 10 : $checksum;
        return ($nr - $checksum) == $imei{14};
    }

    var_dump(imeiChecksum('350770205545506'));

?>
