Purchasing an iPhone from an online store (or a normal store), especially when it is a Second-Hand iPhone, is not an easy job.

You might be able to inspect its case, but how sure you can be if internally everything is ok? One way to check it is to power it on and play around a bit, but what about is lock status?

Doing an iPhone Unlock Check will help you to determine if that iPhone is able to operate with other Mobile Networks, which is very important especially if you travel a lot!

iPhone Unlock Check – Why this is important?

Let me first inform you what Locked and Unlocked iPhones are, because this is what this service if focusing on.

I am sure that most of you want to use any Mobile Network you want to your iPhone. Not only because you might be travelling a lot, but most Carrier give out special offers and it is great to be able to change contracts whenever that suits you.

The Locked iPhone will not allow you to do that. If you try to do it, you will receive the message that this SIM-Card is not valid and you will not have signal to your iPhone. On the other hand, an Unlocked iPhone will allow you to use any Mobile Network you want, even to a foreign country.

Explanation of iPhone Unlock Check Services

iPhone Unlock CheckSIM-Lock Status:

The SIM-Lock status of the Check IMEI Apple Service will inform you if your iPhone is Locked or Unlocked. It will not inform you (In case of a Locked-Status) in which Mobile Network it is locked. Ideal for recently Officially Unlocked iPhones, which will inform you if the Unlock was successful. Highly recommended before buying an iPhone.

Network Identification:

It will inform you in which Mobile Network your iPhone is activated and if that Network has locked your iPhone. You will also receive a suggestion to trusted and verified IMEI Unlock provider which supports your Network. Highly recommended before buying an iPhone.

Blacklist Status:

The Blacklist status of the Check IMEI Apple Service will inform you if your iPhone has been reported as Lost or Stolen, and also if it is has pending contract bills. It is a very important check, because by purchasing a Blacklisted iPhone, the chances to unlock it become thinner and more expensive. Ideal for purchasing Second-Hand iPhonefrom online shops (like eBay, Amazon and Craigslist).

IMEI/Serial Replacement Check:

In some occasions, iRepair shops will try to change the IMEI and the Serial Number of an iPhone, in order to make it “appear” as Unlocked or NOT Blacklisted. This check, will inform you if that iPhone has a replaced IMEI/Serial number, which of them is currently active and if any previous IMEI/Serial numbers have been Blacklisted. Also ideal for Second-Hand iPhones.

iCloud/Find my iPhone Check IMEI Apple Service:

It will show you if the Find My iPhone feature is ON or OFF and it your iPhone has an iCloud Lock. It is highly recommended to combine the Blacklist Status Check with the iCloud/Fing My iPhone Check, because the combination of a Blacklisted and iCloud Locked iPhone, will make this iPhone unusable.
