There are many Free Blacklist IMEI Checkers out there and imeipro info is one of the most popular for sure.
UltraSnow Blog Team is always searching for free iPhone Unlock & Check services (or methods) first and then turns to paid solutions as a final choice.
But make no mistake. Anything found here is tested and guaranteed through our research and tests and our visitors’ comments (we have more than 2000 visitors every day).
Many visitors tried www.imeipro.info and their reports are mostly negative. So, I had to see for myself what this iPhone Blacklist Check Company is all about.
Using IMEIPRO info to check if an iPhone is Blacklisted
I made a Google Search for IMEI Pro and of course, imeipro.info was the first result.
I have to make two remarks at first glance:
- The title doesn’t clearly state that this is only a Blacklist IMEI Checker. Of course, if you read the description, you can see that they will IMEI Search for Stolen or lost iPhones.
- I get the word FREE a lot:
- ESN FREE Checker
- FREE online lookup Tool
- Free iPhone IMEI Checker
- Free Samsung IMEI Checker
They could try to improve the page title but if their services are free, it is completely understandable to repeat it over and over again (but from my experience, this is never a good sign).
IMEI PRO INFO Home Page
Their showcase looks alright, there are IMEI Check Service Options at the top and if you scroll down they are explaining how to use their iPhone Blacklist Checker.
I marked a specific area, though. Do you wonder why? Let’s take a closer look!
So, because they are too busy they are NOT offering their iCloud Status IMEI Check services for free anymore!
I registered and tool a look at these IMEIpro check plans.
There is a daily and two monthly options for iPhone IMEI Checks.
All the options give you the ability to check from 20 to 300 iPhones and the prices vary between $1.99 and $149.99.
So, is IMEI PRO Blacklist Checker free?
IMEIpro.info Free Blacklist IMEI Check
I used my old iPhone 6s, filled in my IMEI and these are their Blacklist Status IMEI lookup results.
There is also an Apple IMEI Checker option. Let’s also do that. It’s free after all.
Yes, my iPhone is not blacklisted for sure, the Apple warranty results are true and I didn’t pay for anything, so you may think that their International Blacklist IMEI Check really works.
But do you see that there is an asterisk (*) next to Blacklist Status?
So, let’s read the small letters:
We do not guarantee that our service is error-free
How can this be possible? An iPhone Unlock Service is never 100% guaranteed and this is why trusted SIM Unlock Companies refund you in case of failure, as long as you provide them with a Full IMEI Check Report.
On the other hand, there is NO doubt with a true IMEI Check Service for one simple reason:
No need to say that you have to pay in order to use these databases and only a few IMEI Check Companies are authorized to use them. But is imeipro.info one of them?
Can you trust IMEIpro info Blacklisted iPhone Check Results?
So, a solid IMEI Check provider must have access to GSMA and GSX servers. Can IMEI PRO use these servers?
The small letters contained another useful piece of information.
IMEIpro Blacklist database record? What is that?
I searched their site for answers and there it was! At the bottom of IMEI PRO Home Page.
If you still don’t understand what is going on, let me make it clear.
“I PRO” uses a private worldwide Blacklist Database. There is no GSX or GSMA access.
This is the trick of all ”Free” iPhone Blacklist IMEI Checkers. Private IMEI Databases.
These databases are always outdated and no one can really tell where their iPhone Check Results are coming from.
But there is another issue even more important:
iPhones are not blacklisted only when they are reported as stolen or lost to a Mobile Network!
And IMEI PRO info clearly states that it will only check if an iPhone is LOST or STOLEN and nothing more!
In order to continue my test, I left my contract bills unpaid for 2 months and of course, my iPhone 6s became blacklisted because of it.
I checked my iPhone again with IMEIpro and guess what happened. It continues to show that my iPhone is CLEAN. This means that if I wanted to sell you this iPhone and you used their services to check it, you would believe you are getting a totally unlocked iPhone but in reality, you would be terribly wrong.
IMEIpro.info iPhone Checker: The verdict
Let me tell you something before I proceed any further. There was never an IMEIPRO info Free Blacklist IMEI Check. The word Free is just a click-bait and it totally worked. They have just let me use their private blacklisted ESN/IMEI database for free and that’s all.
But I would be OK with that. I already know that you have to pay for a true iPhone IMEI Check Service… and this bring us to the most important part of this IMEI PRO review:
Is their International Blacklist IMEI Check really work? The answer is NO!
Of course, they have some kind of access to IMEI info because the Apple Warranty results were correct but this is not enough.
IMEIpro Info claims that they are 99,9% accurate because they rely on their very own private IMEI Database. The truth is that this number is WAY LOWER in reality.
Don’t forget that even if we accept that they really know if an iPhone is blacklisted as stolen or lost, they will never take all the other Blacklisting reasons into account. But why do that when you have access to the Worldwide Blacklist Database?
Simply because there is no Worldwide Blacklist Database. Every country has its own blacklist, some of them share them (like the USA, Canada, Brazil, Mexico and Puerto Rico) and only GSMA servers show if an iPhone is blacklisted, why and by which Carrier.
And of course, I would never use IMEIpro paid iPhone check Services because even if they work, the way they advertise their site is dangerous.
So, before you buy a used iPhone or before you try to unlock it, using a Free IMEI Checker is never a good idea because a wrong result will cost you hundreds of dollars. And in 99,9% of cases, Free IMEI Check Results are false.
