Accuracy Overview of IMEI Check Companies:

Accuracy-Guarantee-IMEI CheckFor this test, there is not much we can say.

All of the above companies provided us similar information even when we tried to change some values to our iPhones.

All of them, have GSX access, which is the only place that you can find accurate and up to date information for an IMEI number.

Apple Global Service Exchange (GSX) is a tool capable of single service, repair and order management. Apple partners use GSX to pull together various service business with Apple worldwide. In simple words, all IMEI numbers can be found inside this database, with all their details.

So, this is a tie for all 3 IMEI Check companies.

Response Time Overview of IMEI Check Companies:

Normally, this varies, since sometimes Apple’s GSX database might be OFFLINE due to maintenance.

Those services work to their best during midday weekdays and this is when we run our tests.

We provided 10 IMEI number to each IMEI Check company and we received the IMEI Check reports within the following average response time.

Response Time Overview IMEI Check Companies Response Time:
IMEI Check Response time was the faster IMEI Check company, with an average of 3 minutes and 27 seconds. To their response, they included both their phonenumber and requested ours. We tested their Call Back Service and they call us back within 1 minute from the moment we send them our contact details.
IMEI.Report Response Time:
IMEI Check Response time IMEI.reportIMEI.Report took a bit longer (4 minutes and 26 seconds), but their information include much more details. They do not send you a report, but they have a very beautiful user interface to browse all information about your iPhone. Response Time:
IMEI Check Response time was the slowest one with 5 minutes and 31 seconds. To their reply, not only they had the full IMEI Check report as a text, but also as a PDF.
If you look those response times again, the difference is very low. If you compare them with other IMEI Check services (Which some of them might take over 24 hours) you can clearly understand that 1-2 minutes difference is nothing!
So, we believe that all three IMEI Check companies have a great response time (During middays and weekdays), so it is a tie again!

Explanation of the Report Quick Overview:

All three IMEI Check companies have a different way to present their IMEI Check reports.

All of them are very easy to understand, but I guess it is up to you to decide which method suits you best!

IMEI.Report Dashboard:
