Before explaining you what exactly is an Apple iPhone IMEI Check, I really need to explain you why it is called like that and what are the benefits of getting that specific service.
The IMEI, is a unique number that all iPhones have. This way, Apple and Mobile Network are able to identify who is the owner of that iPhone and other numerous information. Since it is unique, all the information that correspond to that IMEI number identify several details, such as Technical Information, Network Information and Blacklist Status information (Which Apple iPhone IMEI Check provides to you).
There are only a few info that the IMEI number holds. Hundreds of information can be found there, but only a few are valuable to us (The majority of the other information are too technical and they play no important part to the public).

The only way to get those information is from Apple. Apple holds a database, which is called Apple’s GSX Database, and all those information are available there. This server is not accessible to the public, because there are certain requirements.

Why the Apple iPhone IMEI Check is important?
I am sure that the first question that popped to your head is, Why do I need an Apple iPhone IMEI Check?
I will list you below all the important information that we can retrieve from Apple’s GSX database and then give you a few examples of why you really need it!
Apple iPhone IMEI Check Information:
- SIM-Lock Status of your iPhone
- Network Identification
- Local and Global Blacklist Status
- Activation Status
- Your iPhone’s Warranty State (Telephone and Service Coverage)
- IMEI and Serial Number Replacement Status
- iCloud and Find My iPhone status (ON-OFF)
- General Technical Information about your iPhone
Some of the above information may not make much sense to you, so I will break them down to pieces and give you a detailed explanation.
What Apple iPhone IMEI Check will provide?
All the information below are available to our users either with the Apple iPhone IMEI Check Full Package or by simply choosing individually the Check-Option they need.
Apple’s GSX database will inform you if your iPhone is locked or not. If it is locked then you will not be able to use it with a different Mobile Network
It will inform you in which Mobile Network your iPhone has been activated. That way, you will be able to understand what Network your iPhone is allowed to use and what Network needs to be unlocked (If your iPhone is Locked and it is activated on AT&T USA Network, it means that you must Unlock AT&T USA carrier in order to be able to use it with a different carrier).
Local and Global Blacklist Status:
This information will tell you if your iPhone has been blacklisted (Report as lost or stolen – or if it has pending bill payments). If it is blacklisted you will also receive information of the Mobile Network, the Country and the Reason that has been Blacklisted.
It will inform you if your iPhone has been activated with a Mobile Network. Some iPhone have a “weird” Locked Policy. One example is that an iPhone might appear as Locked, but not in a specific Mobile Network. This happens when it is “programmed” to get locked to the first Mobile Network that will get activated (This can be more specific, like first UK or USA Mobile Network that will get activated).
Apple provides 1 year service coverage and 90 days Telephone coverage. Depending on the plan that you have chosen, the coverage varies. This option tells you exactly how many are left to your warranty (Helpful when you want to buy a second hand iPhone).
iCloud/Find My iPhone feature:
iCloud Lock Activation is a mechanism that discourages thieves from stealing iDevices. Find My iPhone is a feature that allows the original owner to track down their iDevice. If those are enabled, and your iPhone is blacklisted, there is a very good chance that you might not be able to access that iPhone (It will be useless!). Extremely crucial option for buying second hand iPhones.
This is self explanatory. It will provide you your iPhone model, age, production week, factory that was made, serial number, storage and much more. This is included to the basic Apple iPhone IMEI Check.
Do I really need an Apple iPhone IMEI Check?
My answer to that is definitely YES.
I will give you one example that it probably the most common one and it is happening every day!
If you want to buy a second hand iPhone, then online stores are a very good way to do it (like e-Bay, Amazon or Craigslist). The problem is that you cannot only rely on user feedback about a seller. You are not buying a cheap product, you are buying an iPhone, and if you get scammed it will cost you a lot.
Now, lets say that you find an iPhone 6 64GB Space Gray, and the price is $600. Very good right? I would buy it too! The problem is that you do not know some information, that might cost you extra dollars. If the iPhone is Locked to “hard-to-unlock” Mobile Network or if it blacklisted, it may cost you extra $250.
By doing an Apple iPhone IMEI Check from us, we will provide you its SIM-Lock Status, its Blacklist Status and the Mobile Network that this iPhone is activated. Knowing all these, you will see if this deal is good, and how much extra money it will cost you to Unlock and UnBlacklist it.
