    IMEI numbers indicate the make, model, and carrier within the TAC code (the first 7 digits of the IMEI).

    Does anyone know of an IMEI database / barcode scanner that can help quickly get devices checked into inventory by type using the IMEI?

    Any info would be appreciated!

    grrr im attempting to remember the computer based software i was using to organize inventory while managing tmobile, We used a scanner gone and just scanned the imeis from the boxes or phone and it would input them to the database. gggrrrrr ill think on it and email a buddy still working with them to figure out what it was called.

    Almost any regular barcode scanner/gun should handle it. The code will be one of the common ones used for stock control, and most of the scanners operate as a regular input device to PC software.

    What about the software? You're right that the hardware should be relatively easy to find (off the shelf, readily available).

    @mostlydo - Please PM me if / when you recall!

    Software should be pretty much whatever you want to use for inventory control. Anything from a simple spreadsheet, up to a custom front end driving a SQL database, and every bell and whistle ever invented.

    (Why does almost everyone try to use a spreadsheet to make a database?)
