    I recently lost my Droid 4, but I have Asurion coverage on it, so I'm filling out the claim to get a replacement. However, the claim requires you to report the MEID of your lost phone (presumably so they can add it to their "blacklist"). Seeing as I no longer have the phone, does anyone know if I can look up somewhere what the MEID was? I've already checked previous bills and it's not listed there.

    I'm not sure if Verizon will or won't, but you could try giving them a call and explaining the situation to them and they might be nice enough to help you out with this.

    If you have more than one line on your account, or have activated another phone on that line, you should be able to pull the MEID from your online account. Just go to "Activate or switch device", choose a line, choose "Activate Device", then choose "I am activating a device that I previously used with this account". Then choose the device from the dropdown menu, and the MEID should be shown. I *think* that will work.

    That's too easy. (I assumed from the question that the box was long gone)

    Quite right.

    Wow, that's brilliant, and yes, it does show my history of activated phones. From it arises another problem, though - I've owned and activated 2 different Droid 4's because one malfunctioned under warranty and needed replacing, and so they both show up there and are basically indistinguishable (both say Droid 4 and the MEID). Any guesses as to whether the more recent one would be listed first or second?

    No idea.

    However, now that you have it narrowed down to two MEIDs, I bet you could call VZW and they would tell you which one was most recently activated.
