So did you finally get your phone back? Good thing you logged into your Samsung Account and the thief wasn't a technical expert Well you know what they say, "What goes around comes around"

If you have installed Google Play for at least one time, your IMEI is stored in your Google Profile.
Just go to your Google Dashboard, and search the Android Section.
Your IMEI will be there.

Feel free to hit Thanks, if I helped you.
