How to Find the Model Number of My Nokia Cell Phone

You will need the model number of your Nokia cell phone before purchasing compatible accessories such as travel chargers or hands-free headsets, or before getting the phone repaired. The easiest way to find the number is to check your owner’s manual, receipt or the box your phone came in. If, however, you don’t have any of those available, there are other ways to find your phone’s model number without a lot of hassle.
