What is an IMEI Check?

It’s a service that allows you to check the current status, background and history of an iPhone through an IMEI number.

What is an IMEI number?

IMEI stands for International Mobile Equipment Identity and allows us to identify your iPhone.
It’s a unique ( usually 15-digit ) number that you can get by dialing *#06* or going to Settings -> General -> Info.

When would I need to perform an IMEI Check?

  • BEFORE unlocking / activating your new iPhone
    • Save Money by ordering the right unlock
    • Prevent getting your iPhone Unlock Order denied
    • Checking before travel
    • Based on our results, we give you specific unlock recommendations
  • BEFORE buying / selling a second-hand iPhone
    • Prevent buying a stolen, lost or in-contract iPhone that can’t be unlocked
    • Prevent counterfeit or fake devices
    • query an IMEI of an unknown phone  to learn more about it
