Usually, you can see the IMEI number on the original packaging box. You can also find it in iCloud or another iOS device. When you realize your iPhone has got lost or stolen, you can tell the details to your network service provider and ask them to add your IMEI number to the gray list of the IMEI database so that they can track your lost iPhone even if it is turned off.

It is so lucky to find the lost iPhone. But what if you fail to find your iPhone?
