      Confirm the authenticity of the device and its specifications

      Every sale of a gadget comes with a risk of being counterfeit or not matching the specifications advertised - this can either occur intentionally or by mistake. Checking the IMEI lets you determine whether the phone matches the brand and model you purchased, and that it is also registered on the manufacturer’s database. In addition, it can indicate whether you received the wrong variant of the device, such as a different color or storage capacity.

      Devices are subject to activation locks and SIM restrictions

      Most manufacturers implement security features into their devices, which can protect the user’s data in case of loss or theft, and prevent anyone else from using it. Many mobile users don’t realise this feature is active by default, or forget to disable it when selling the device. Phones may also have a SIM lock, which restricts the device to only working with a single carrier in a specific region. An IMEI check can detect both of these restrictions.

      Accurately evaluate a gadget before you buy or sell it

      You can assess the condition and functionality of a device yourself, but that’s only half the picture. There are many other factors that you can’t physically assess, which can drastically affect the value of a device… That’s where IMEI checks can help! By taking into account the age of a phone, warranty period, blacklist history, specifications, and the presence of activation or SIM locks, you will know exactly what a gadget is worth on the market.

      Check Your Device's IMEI

      In order to meet your expectations, we are adding new device information and specification every day

      How is the IMEI number used?

      left
      The term “IMEI” stands for “International Mobile Equipment Identity”, and it is a unique 15-digit number which identifies every cellular device. The IMEI number is generated and assigned to the mobile during the manufacturing process and never changes from that point. It is therefore common to find the IMEI number printed somewhere around the exterior of the device, such as inside the battery compartment, or engraved on the back of the phone or SIM card tray. A more standardised method is by dialing *#06# on your phone, which most manufacturers have built in, but you can also generally find any device identifiers from the settings app/menu.

      The IMEI number is how networks identify your phone, but not your SIM card. Each SIM card stores its own unique number in the chip, called an “IMSI” number, which stands for “International Mobile Subscriber Identity”. This number embeds the country and carrier of the intended network, as well as identifying the specific user of that network. Therefore, networks have access to both your customer ID (from the IMSI) and device ID (from the IMEI).

      Some devices incorporate a relatively new technology, called an “eSIM”, which is short for “embedded-SIM”. This is basically a SIM card that is already installed in the device, which you can’t see, replace or remove, but can be programmed remotely to switch carriers. It’s considered the next generation of SIM card, and is becoming more and more common. As it is still a type of SIM card, it requires a separate IMEI. Therefore, if a device has both a SIM card slot and an eSIM, then it will have two IMEI numbers, referred to as “IMEI” and “IMEI2”.

      The IMEI number has many uses, but one of the most significant is the ability to block a lost or stolen phone from accessing a network. If a mobile phone is stolen, the owner can request their network provider to blacklist the device’s IMEI number, which immediately bans the phone from accessing the network. Since the IMEI is a device identifier, a blacklist cannot be avoided by changing the SIM card, as the IMEI does not change. While a phone is blacklisted, it cannot make or receive calls or texts, and can neither access the internet (except through a WiFi connection).

      As part of the global initiative to stop mobile theft, carriers often work with each other to share their databases of reported phones, therefore if one carrier blacklists your device, you can expect all other networks in your country to also block access from your phone. A blacklist can only be removed by the carrier who issued it, and they will require authorisation from the owner of the device in order to remove it.

      There are so many other uses for the IMEI number, especially by manufacturers, which can produce much more information about a device. Our website offers much of this for free, such as the blacklist status, warranty information, model, device specifications and Find My iPhone status. All you need for an IMEI check is to enter the IMEI number and we will handle all the lookups with manufacturers and carriers worldwide!

      We’re launching an innovative interface for businesses

      Free checks are not practical for large or regular volume, and more importantly, they don’t provide all the information we have available. We are therefore launching a professional solution for businesses, which gives you access to over 50 various services, covering all major brands and including SIM lock + carrier detection.

      We’re also introducing a simple, yet powerful interface, which allows businesses to input hundreds of IMEIs - whether copied or from a file - to process checks simultaneously in just seconds. All results are formatted into spreadsheets, and can be exported as such.

      Finally, we’re including an API to enable our IMEI data to be integrated into any system, whether for device analytics or resale. We’re ensuring that our system is built with speed, performance, and reliability in mind. We are even incorporating an automated billing process to give you one less thing to worry about - this will make possible for the first time, a fully autonomous integration.

      I bought a used iPhone 11 and dialed *#06# and the resulting value did not match the number on the box of the phone, so I think it was stolen and the number was reported. I went to this resource and found out more information about the IMEI iPhone 11, I was very pleased with the service, I liked everything
      Oliver Casey review

      Oliver Casey

      I want to buy a Galaxy S11 phone, but I have many doubts, is it original or fake? Of course, on the box and phone there is the name of the model and the country where the phone was made, but I used this service to verify the IMEI, and made sure that it was the same phone advertised. Thank you, very good service!
