There is a very easy way to see the IMEI code in an Samsung Focus through a hidden code in the system.
The IMEI code identifies a mobile device uniquely, each Samsung device has its own IMEI code, this code must be printed on the device box and in the case of devices with removable battery under it. Here we discover how to get it in an Samsung Focus very easily through the system settings.

It is important to know what your IMEI code is in case of theft, to report it and ask the telephone operator to block the device and can not be used by another person.
