Questions and Answers

Can I use the IMEI to find the correct MAC?

I'm pretty sure the Tablet is authentic, but the MAC has been changed. Why would this be done?

The IMEI code will only verify whether your Tablet is genuine or a fake. The IMEI number also know as The International Mobile Equipment Identity is a number unique for every device, which can be displayed on your device by dialing the *#06# in your dial pad. You can verify this code on the IMEI website, which can be accessed from every web browser.

A MAC address, also known as 'Media Access Control' address, can be found in your Android Tablet settings. The two are not related, and your MAC address does not ever change, because it is a hardware setting unique to your device. However, it is possible that you have changed networks, in which case the network device you are connecting to may have a different MAC address, again, unique to each network device.

Trying to find info about a mini iPad that was stolen?

All the paperwork was stolen with it as it new and in the bag. I think I know who has it. If I can locate a MAC or the IMEI from Apple, is there a way to see it on their home or cell network? Just trying to find my property in a different way. I have tried: Police, useless unless you have a video of the person stealing your property. I think it was caused by: A disturbed ex wife broke into my house and stole about in the property.
