This is the place where you will learn what an IMEI Blacklist Status Check is, why it is important and how to order it.
We highly recommend on doing an IMEI Blacklist Status Check before buying a Second-Hand iPhone/iPad or before ordering an Official IMEI Unlock, but let us inform you why it is so important.
IMEI Blacklist Status Check – What this service provides?
As its name states, it checks throughout all the Blacklists worldwide, to see if your IMEI number is listed there. If it listed then the report will inform you that your IMEI is BLACKLISTED, and will also update you about the reason. If it is not listed to any of those blacklists, then it will return as CLEAN.
Knowing in advance if your iPhone is blacklisted or not, can save you a lot of money (Up to $250 for some Blacklisted iPhones from specific Mobile Networks). Either you will not buy it (Which is what we recommend, unless you need it for spare parts) or you will buy it, but you will have to find a valid IMEI Unlock provider that supports Blacklisted iPhones (Unlocking blacklisted iPhones is very expensive).
Why an iPhone gets Blacklisted – IMEI Blacklist Status Check
There are many reasons an iPhone can get blacklisted, and also it can be blacklisted from either Apple or a Mobile Network.
The major reasons of an iPhone getting Blacklisted are:
- Stolen from its original owner (The owner reports it as Stolen)
- Lost by its original owner (The owner reports it as Lost)
- Insurance Claim (If the iPhone is under warranty and the owner requests a new one [various reasons])
- The owner is not paying his contract bills (The Mobile Network marks that IMEI number as Blacklisted)
