  1. Quick Facts:

    • Seattle has at least 10 cell phone theft cases daily, authorities say.
    • Prosecutors say thieves using cell phone buy-back kiosks.
    • Police say to write down IMEI number before your phone is stolen.
    • Phones with IMEI numbers reported stolen are useless to thieves.
    My question is what if it don't have an IMEI number but a MEID number? Are they one in the same?
