does anyone know how to display the imei number of the phone?
I'm having trouble getting my tablet unlocked. The service that I am using asked me to double check that the number under the battery cover is the same as the one the phone displays on screen.
The problem is that the code displays requested service unknown?
Is there another way to make the phone display it other than *#06# ?

If you install the free Android System Information app from the market, it will display the number, as well as a lot of other useful stuff.
Great app...found IMEI under "System/Telephony"...

I saw someone on eBay advertising for this but I'm confused since I thought the S7 was already unlocked? It works with both my AT&T and T-Mo SIMS.
There are many S7 variations. Some may be locked to carriers, hence why there is unlocking service offered on eBay. The ones from Best Buy US are unlocked. You do not mention which one you have but since you are able to use ATT and T-Mo sim cards, sounds like yours already is unlocked.

Heh, I just noticed that the number is also printed by the sim slot underneath the back cover, that might have been an easier way to get it.
I used this app and it worked ... Then I was able to by a Data Pass from AT&T
