    I have an iphone 5 and am trying to locate the 'entire' serial number. I go to General and then About and scroll down to serial number. Unfortunately it only shows about 5 or 6 digits and then fills in the rest with xxxxx's. I need the entire number as I'm trying to see if I have a faulty battery and would like to check it against Apple's website, but I need the entire serial number to do that. I have several iphones and they all show the complete serial number, but on this particular device I get the partial number. Can anyone help:?

    Look at the device's iTunes "summary" tab...

    I don't know what to tell you except that "my iPhone" shows the entire serial number. Can you rotate the device to landscape mode to see if you can see the whole number? Do you have the box that the device came in? If so you can find it on the box.

    If you see a partial serial number on your iPhone, it's because under Settings > General > Accessibility > Larger Text you've enabled larger sizes. Drag the slider further left to shrink the text, and you'll be able to see your entire serial number.
