What is IMEI number?
The IMEI number is a 15 number unique to your phone, this number which differentiates each.
IMEI stands for (International Mobile Equipment Identity), consists of the this information:
TAC (Type Allocation Code) The first 6 digits.
Final Assembly Code (FAC) Digits 7 and 8.
Serial number: The following 6 digits.
Validation code: The last digit, used only for verification.
Type *#06# on phone's keypad to obtain the IMEI code.
What does it mean phone reported or blacklisted?
When a phone is reported like stolen or lost, the phone is included in a database.
If you attempt to use a reported or blacklisted phone, it is very likely it won’t have network coverage. You can use WiFI to connect to the internet and even send text messages, but you won’t be able to make or receive calls.
Can I unlock a reported phone?
Yes, but remember: Unlocking a device has nothing to do with removing it from the blacklist. Unlocking your phone allows you to use it on any other network in the world.
However, even though the phone is unlocked, you almost certainly won’t be able to make or receive calls until the phone has been removed from the blacklist.
In some cases, it is possible that an unlocked phone works correctly even though it has been reported.
If I want to buy a second-hand phone. What do I need to check?
Most important is that you get the IMEI number, so you can check the history of the phone yourself. We recommend paying for an official report. Do not trust IMEI number checks that are advertised for free.
Which network providers are included in the report?
Information on the current status is updated daily by the GSMA, of which almost all network providers are members.
