    The original poster is incorrect. Billing is not linked to the IMEI. The SIM card contains the phone number.

    Re: Is it bad to give out your IMEI number?

    I have a similar question. I have a Sierra Wireless 3g/4g thing from Sprint. I just got rid of Sprint. The device is only 2 months old. I fly out of the US mainly and it wouldnt work so they were nice enough to let me out of the contract and I got to keep the device since I paid for it.

    My question...how to I clear it out so I can sell it on Ebay? The accounts closed. I made sure it doesnt connect to the internet but when you click on the profile you do see the phone number the device originally used. Even though the accounts closed do I need to do anything to clear the thing before I sell it?? Thanks!!!

    Thanks for the great information. Everyone should know this stuff. And that is why I always tell people to get their phones unlocked by the company they brought it from and not just some guy on a forum. Good job.

    Tony E has very aptly described why its harmful to provide your IMEI number openly on the web.

    IMEI is just like any sensible personal Data. you don't post it on the web.

    I think it is. I don't like giving anything away, especially if it is online things

    Giving away your IMEI number is dangerous though if the person is reliable, but most of the cases its harmful.
    Its very difficult and expensive for the corporate sector to send text messages to each of their loyal customer when it comes to market new product or promotion "Mocean sms" is the your solution to market everything any thing via text in cheapest rate.
