BlackBerry OS versions 4.5 to 7.1:

Every Nokia flip phone has a short code that you can use when you need to retrieve information about your phone. From the home screen, type *#0000#. Your Model Number will be listed either with “Nokia” before the number or with an “N” before the number.
If your phone make is not listed above or if you are having trouble finding your model number, do not fear. There are two additional ways to determine your phone’s model number.
1. Power On
Many flip phones display the model number when they first power on. You simply need to power off your phone, then power it back on, and watch for a start-up screen with your model number listed.
2. Under the Battery
Most flip phones also specify the model number underneath the phone’s battery. To find the model number, you should first power down your phone. Then, remove your flip phone’s back cover. Finally, lift the battery out of the phone. You will find a label that includes a list of letters and numbers. See below for an example of what model numbers appear as on the label under your battery for some phone makes.
BlackBerry: R, followed by a 4-digit number, Ex: R-5609
Nokia: Usually a 4-digit number standing a lone, Ex: 1786
