  1. Turn off your Motorola cell phone.

  2. Remove the battery cover from your cell phone. Most models require a small amount of pressure to be applied while sliding off the cover.

  3. Remove the cell phone battery and locate the white sticker on the phone, underneath where the battery was housed.

  4. Go to http://servicemyphone.motorola.com/iden/support/showCheckRepair.do on Motorola's website and enter the ESN or IMEI number found on the white sticker. If you cannot locate the ESN or IMEI number, go to http://direct.motorola.com/hellomoto/nss/How_Do_I_Find_IMEI.html for assistance.

  5. Tip

    Replace your cell phone battery and battery cover before turning your cell phone back on.
