Can the deviceID in a CommCare form submission be used to trace details about the submitting device


When looking at a form submission on CommCareHQ, the Form Metadata includes a field called deviceID. Can this field be used to find additional information about the device, such as model number, serial number, etc.? If so, how?

Best Answer

You may be able to use online tools to lookup the deviceID/IMEI number. One tool that I found was: Enter the deviceID and you should see the phone specs.
