The IMEI element value can be up to 1024 characters in length. The server does not validate the format of the IMEI element value.

The device ID parameter that is currently included in the request URL is not precisely defined; protocol implementers are free to populate the field as they want. To enable workable inventory-type report generation, an ID that uniquely identifies a device in the space of all devices is required. The IMEI element satisfies this requirement.
