  1. I read about this on Snopes the other day, and decided to try to get my phone’s serial number.
    It didn’t work. :/ Perhaps a Nextel fault.

  2. Guess I should have tried. Ah! Works on a Motorola v400

  3. Doesn’t work on my Audiobox XV6600 either 🙁

    But I just opened then back and grabbed the ESN number (same as the serial number)
