The market for second hand iPhones is booming. But before you handover any money, make sure the device is worth your hard-earned cash. Our IMEI check works in under 2 hours to provide all you need to know about a used Apple iPhone. Find out when it was manufactured, see if it’s in warranty, ID its network, check to see if its ‘Find My iPhone’ activation lock is enabled, and assess its simlock status. With all the important areas ticked off, you can invest with your eyes wide open.
About to buy a second-hand Samsung device? First check its DNA. With our IMEI check you can see if the used device is locked to a specific network like EE. This could determine if the phone is usable or not and will play an important part in your decision to continue with your purchase. You can also find out if it’s still in warranty and get accurate manufacturing information.
It’s impossible to tell simply by looking at a used phone what its history is. It may look brand new but the reality could be something quite different. Using your IMEI you can check to see if the phone was purchased new, is a refurbished model, or is a replacement device supplied by the manufacturer. Of course, the device performance and reliability of refurbished and replacement devices may be equivalent to brand new devices. But it may impact insurance costs and resale value.
If you’ve bought or are planning on buying a second-hand smartphone, the network it’s registered to matters. If it’s a network you’re already on, you may be able to put the SIM card you currently have into the SIM card slot and start using the device. If it’s a different network, you may have to get your phone unlocked to use your existing SIM card. Or consider moving over to another network. Running an IMEI unlock check will clarify the situation.
Not all phones are squeaky clean. Some have a dark and murky past. The problem is that if there are secrets, they’ll be well-hidden behind-the-scenes. An IMEI blacklist check digs deep into a phone’s history to see if it’s been blocked by local or international providers due to unpaid bills, theft or loss. With a blacklisted phone you might not be able to make calls, send text messages or connect to the internet. Get peace of mind before you buy a used phone by checking its status first.
Apple devices are sought after when it comes to design, security and functionality. But if you’re buying a used Apple iPhone or iPad, some of those features could stand in your way. The most common example of this relates to the iCloud account linked to the device. If the iCloud account is locked, your access will be limited. The same goes for the ‘Find Devices’ feature on iCloud. If it’s still activated, the Activation Lock will also be activated. This means you won’t be able to log in using your iCloud credentials and you won’t be able to use the device. The easiest solution? Check the iPhone status before you buy.
There are three ways to find a phone’s IMEI number:

Part of Apple’s ‘Find My’ app, Activation Lock is a security feature. It’s designed to prevent unauthorized people from using a device. It’s automatically enabled if the ‘Find My’ feature is turned on. The registered Apple ID and password will then be required in order to erase or reactivate the device.
The device imei number is different from the serial number. While the IMEI is used to identify an individual handset, the serial number is used by manufacturers to track products.
