My phone, now for the second time in a matter of only a few months, has stopped working. Just like last time, I went to turn it on and it refuses, instead it just endlessly vibrates. So far this experience with this phone has been the worst out of all the phones I've ever had. I regret the day I bought it for 800$. Still, I need a phone, so I have to use the warranty. However, they need the IMEI number from the phone and without it working, I can't simply look it up on the phone itself. Is there a way to get it otherwise?
It wasn't etched on the back of the phone? Do you still have the original box from the phone purchase? Was it on the purchase receipt?
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
No it's not on the phone itself. No the original box was lost almost a year ago. The replacement phone came in a different box as it was obviously refurbished. And it's not on the original receipt either.
I went to the store today and they told me that warranties can only be claimed once. So despite the fact they gave me a faulty 800$ replacement that had the same problem, I'm out of luck . I just have to go without a phone for a while until I can get enough money to get a different one. Really regret buying that phone.

They are wrong. Replacement devices have either a 90 day warranty or are covered until the original device's warranty ends. Whichever is longer.

You can view the IMEI of your current devices by logging into your My Verizon account and selecting My Devices.
You can also register the IMEI with Motorola and perform the warranty claim through them directly.
3 people at that store agreed on the one time use of the warranty. If they are wrong, that's gonna take a little more convincing. Got the page where it states this by chance?
As for the "My devices" page showing the IMEI, here's clicking on the "My device" link:
And here's what the page shows:
No IMEI is shown. Unless I have the wrong page, I don't think it shows on the site so I'll have to find another source.
I would be equally upset if my phone stopped working after a few months Aussj4link. This does not sound right at all. I am here to help to see what options you have.
