OnePlus Nord IMEI number issue with *#06# secret code linked to Google Dialer app v56+ on Android 10; fix in the works
Our modern smartphones are crazy capable and sophisticated and we rely on them daily to perform various tasks and do them well for that matter.
But at the end of the day, they’re still phones and they are supposed to perform phone functions and with that, they are all serialized.
For as long as we’ve had cellular networks, we’ve had serial numbers on phones and that hasn’t changed since. One of the easiest and relatively universal ways to get your device’s serial number or IMEI number is by dialing *#06# code on your dialer.
All phones should work with this code, regardless of OEM or operating system. However, users of the OnePlus Nord are facing an issue where their devices don’t show their IMEI and serial number when this code is keyed in.
I need help I just wanted to check my imei number on my OnePlus nord and I tried dialling *#06# on the dialpad but I didn’t get any info usually it must appear can you please try your one and let me know.
This issue is causing users of the affected OnePlus Nord devices to even begin questioning the authenticity of their devices as every phone should produce the IMEI once this code is keyed in.
This code is a generic code for getting IMEI no on any phones, be it of any brand or company. But unable to get the same on my phone which I purchased from Amazon just 2days back. Have doubts now on the genuineness of the product too. Please guide me with this issue.
While this issue has been reported by users of the OnePlus Nord, it seems to be a widespread problem as some users of the OnePlus 8 are reporting similar issues.
OnePlus, through a staff member, has since come out to acknowledge this issue and according to the company, the Google Dialer app that comes with the device is to blame for this anomaly.
The software team is already aware of this and is working to have it fixed in an upcoming update. It seems that this issue occurs when using Google Dialer V56+ on Android 10. Meanwhile, you can still access your IMEI number through the following ways:
– Instead of using *#06#, try *#66#
– You can also access your IMEI by going to System Settings -> About Phone -> Status
We shall continue to keep an eye on this story and update as and when we get more info or the promised fix so stay tuned.
