I think I just got Phished

I got an email that I thought was from xfinity.   It talked about trading in phones.  It was from xfinity@emails.xfinity.com.  The link in the email goes to https://www.xfinity.com/mobile/trade-in/check-condition.   In order to be to give a value of my phone, one thing it asked for was the IMEI number of my mobile phone.  Stupidly, I was fooled and gave it to them.  When I got an error message after entering the number, I got suspicious (I should have been suspicious before).    I then googled xfinity@emails.xfinity.com  and google said it was a phishing email.  Now I am very concerned that my phone will get hacked or something else bad will happen because I stupidly gave them that number.   What if anything can I do?
