Is my iPhone eligible for unlock? The Contract Status
This is one of the most important factors if you are thinking about buying or already bought a used iPhone!
As long as the iPhone remains under contract with the previous owner, you are in grave danger:
- You might buy the pre-owned iPhone locked and unlock it with an IMEI Unlock Service but until the previous contract expires, the seller can report it as lost or stolen and relock your iPhone
- You might buy the refurbished iPhone as unlocked but like before, the previous owner can relock it at any time
- If you bought the iPhone via personal transaction without proof of purchase you might even be accused of stealing the iPhone
Is my iPhone eligible for unlock? Warranty Status
Apple Warranty lasts for six months since the iPhone’s first purchase and AppleCare+ lasts from 1 to 2 years and can be renewed!
An IMEI Check will tell you if one of them is active and the remaining protection days!
You might think that buying a used iPhone that is still protected by Apple Warranty or AppleCare+ is good but you’re wrong!
First of all, it is another indicator that the iPhone is still under contract and on top of that, you can get in trouble with Apple if the previous owner reports the iPhone as lost or stolen to Apple!
Is my iPhone eligible for unlock? Insurance Claims Status
A major scam is based on Insurance Plans!
As long as the iPhone is protected by an Insurance Plan, the original owner can sell you the iPhone, take your money and then after a few days (or even months), report it as stolen or lost, make an Insurance Claim and get a brand new iPhone as a replacement and leave you with a blacklisted iPhone! You can’t let this happen to you!
Is my iPhone eligible for unlock? iPhone/IMEI Replacement check
If you are planning to unlock or purchase a used iPhone it is very important to check if the iPhone or the IMEI number is replaced or not!
- An iPhone can be replaced by Apple when it has a hardware issue and Apple warranty or AppleCare+ is still active.
- The iPhone’s IMEI number can be replaced by someone who has an Apple’s GSX account.
Many times, the reason of iPhone unlocking failure has to do with the iPhone’s replacement status. The Official IMEI Unlock Service must be applied to the first IMEI number the iPhone had. If you provide the IMEI Unlock Provider with the replaced IMEI number the procedure will fail for sure and the fault will be yours!
Also, keep in mind that all carriers refuse to unlock a replaced iPhone.
So, you don’t want to leave the iPhone’s replacement status unchecked!
Is my iPhone eligible for unlock? The iCloud Lock Status
This will be more useful if you do an IMEI Check before you buy a second hand iPhone. A few dollars will save you from spending money for an iCloud Locked iPhone!
Keep in mind that the iCloud Activation Lock is unhackable and you will need to find the iPhone’s original owner in order to iCloud Unlock the used iPhone!
Is my iPhone eligible for unlock? The Blacklist Status
Lost, Stolen, Fraud activities participation and Unpaid Bills Check determine if the iPhone is Blacklisted or Clean!
Of course, a blacklisted iPhone can be SIM Unlocked with a Premium IMEI Unlock Service but the reason it was blacklisted will determine the outcome!
- iPhones that were reported as stolen/lost or were involved in illegal activities won’t be able to function inside the country they were blacklisted (and maybe 1 or 2 neighboring countries if they share blacklists with each other) after the Factory Premium Unlock but at the same time they will be totally usable in any other place in the world!
- iPhones with pending contract bills will be fully unlocked inside the country it was blacklisted and to all GSM Carriers worldwide except the Mobile Network that blacklisted the iPhone
