Most people learn about iPhone Checker (Apple IMEI Check) when it is already too late because they already bought a locked iPhone. But in reality, checking your iPhone is always the smartest move before getting a used iPhone AND before unlocking it. Let’s find out why.
iPhone Checker – What Info is included
Every iPhone is verified (Identified) by Apple and all Mobile Networks worldwide through its unique IMEI number which holds the smallest detail and full background of the iPhone. All IMEI numbers are stored inside GSMA and GSX Databases.
So, besides Wireless Carriers and Apple, only a few iPhone Checkers have authorized access into these IMEI Databases and will provide you with the following services.
- IMEI Carrier Check (SIM Lock Status & Locking Carrier ID)
- iPhone iCloud Check
- IMEI Blacklist Check
- Contract Check
- Warranty Check
- IMEI/Serial Replacement Check (eg. Insurance Claims)
Usually, you are offered the whole package, a Full IMEI Check but in fact, you should never check an iPhone for only a few of these issues unless you are 100% sure about everything else.
For example, if you use an iPhone Checker before you buy a second-hand iPhone and get only a Carrier Check, it might show you that the iPhone is unlocked (and it will be) but at the same time, you won’t be able to use it if it’s also iCloud Locked.
The Apple IMEI Check or an iPhone Checker, should include a full report which checks ALL possible locks an iPhone can have.
Why use an iPhone Checker – #1 Before buying a used iPhone
If you already bought a locked used iPhone then you know what can happen when you simply rely on the product description.
The only way to be 100% sure about the functionality of a refurbished iPhone is using an iPhone Checker.[/vc_column_text]
Why use an iPhone Checker – #2 Before you unlock an iPhone
Simlocked, iCloud Locked or Blacklisted, an iPhone Checker will make sure if the iPhone can be unlocked and all the ways to do so.
Now you can understand your situation, know exactly the services you need and how much they will cost you.
Instead of paying an iPhone Unlock Provider for services you might not understand or even getting a wrong service, you will be advised how to proceed quickly, safely and efficiently.
Conclusion on iPhone Checker
An iPhone Checker guarantees that you get exactly what you paid for. For an iPhone Unlock Service it will help you to pick the right one and for a used iPhone purchase, it will show you if the seller posted an honest description of the product.
I just want to warn about the Free IMEI iPhone Checkers. None of them can provide you an accurate report. They are using private databases which are not up to date and most of the times provide random results. As I explained without GSMA and GSX IMEI databases access it is impossible to get an IMEI Unlock Check report.
