Where to find the unique identifiers (serial numbers) of the Fairphone 2 modules?

Every single Fairphone 2 module is identified by a unique “serial number” composed of letters and numbers. This unique identifier allows us to track the module down to the day it has been manufactured.

We can ask you to provide us the unique identifier of a module. This helps to log and report on a specific issue you are facing.

To avoid confusion between similar characters, the following letters are not used: 'i', 'o', 'u', and 'y'. That way the digits '0' and '1' cannot be mistaken.

 

Fairphone 2 device / Core Module

When referring to a whole Fairphone 2 or when pointing to only the Core Module, the unique identifier is the IMEI of the first SIM slot, or IMEI1. This is the same identifier you will find on the box that was shipped with your device.

The IMEI1 is located on the side of the Core Module, under the volume buttons. It is composed of 15 to 16 digits (there are no letters), e.g. 1234567890123456.

 

Display Module

The unique identifier of the Display Module is located on the back, between the two blue clips. It is composed of 10 characters (letters and digits) and starts with an A, e.g. Axxxxxxxxx. There is also the manufacturing day engraved on the top of the back side, e.g. Made on 18.12.2015.

 

Top Module

The unique identifier of the Top Module is located on the underside, close to the front camera. It is composed of 10 characters (letters and digits) and starts with a B, e.g. Bxxxxxxxxx.

 

Camera Module

The unique identifier of the Camera Module is located on the top, above the camera sensor. It is composed of 10 characters (letters and digits) and starts with a C, e.g. Cxxxxxxxxx.
