Apple iPhone Registration

Information on how to register your iPhone
on Immobilise

Diagram 1

iPhone registration on immobilise only takes a couple of minutes. All you need is the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) and optionally a few photographs to start.

The IMEI number is a unique 15-17 digit serial number for mobile phones and by simply typing *#06# into the keypad the IMEI number will display on the screen (See diagram, right).

Alternatively you should be able to find the IMEI number by checking the phones original packaging, or if you have a paper clip, the IMEI can also be found on the sim card tray.


Diagram 2

To register your iPhone go to the home page on Immobilise.com and create an account.* Simply follow the on-screen instructions (an email address is required).

* If you already have an account sign-in and add another item to your account (Go to step 3, second paragraph).


Diagram 3

Once inside your Immobilise account you will be prompted to add your first item by clicking the button "Add your first Inventory item".

Button If you already have an Immobilise account and are signed-in click the box on the left hand side "Add a new inventory item" to start the registration of your iPhone (shown left).

iPhones also have a unique serial number in addition to the IMEI, to find this on the iPhone go to "Settings" then "General" then "About" and the "Serial number is listed.

To add this and any other indentifiers (i.e. a coded sticker you may have placed on the iPhone), please add them via the "New Identifier" box provided. Make sure NOT to prefix it with anything such as "serial" or "IMEI" and be sure to click save after each one you add.

If you have any photographs, purchase receipts or other relevant documents such as an Insurance certificate you can add these here but please note the system will only accept Jpeg file types under 2mb in size.
