We explain it to all our visitors, but it would be great to inform people that are not purchasing our IMEI Check services. After-all, it is all about sharing information, so lets start!
US GSM COUNTRY DEFAULT POLICY – Which Network is hiding behind it?
The easy part is to identify the country, which is USA. The problem is that USA has many Mobile Networks, but we figure out which Network hides behind the US GSM COUNTRY DEFAULT POLICY.
Let me give you an example of an IMEI Check we performed to a customer, and explain step by step all the details and the the USA Mobile Network that gives the US GSM COUNTRY DEFAULT POLICY initial carrier.
MODEL: IPHONE 5S 16GB SILVER A1533 GSM IMEI: 01xxxx00796xxxx SERIAL: CxxxxGWBxxxx FIND MY iPHONE: OFF HW WARRANTY: Out of Warranty (0 days) PHONE SUPPORT: No phone support (0 days) PURCHASE DATE: 2013-10-02 PRODUCT SOLD BY: APPLE INITIAL CARRIER: US GSM COUNTRY DEFAULT POLICY PURCHASE COUNTRY: UNITED STATES
For obvious reasons I “masked” the IMEI and Serial number, but they have nothing to do with the identification of the USA Mobile Network.
US GSM COUNTRY DEFAULT POLICY is AT&T Mobile Network?
The first thing you need to see is the Network that is being used, and as you can see from the IMEI Network Check above, it is GSM. Now, not only AT&T is using GSM network in the USA, but after many tries we are certain that AT&T Mobile Network is being used.
In the cases that you will see in the Network (In the MODEL field) a CDMA, it is most likely a Sprint USA Network.
This guy has a GSM Network, and by combining it with the INITIAL CARRIER: US GSM COUNTRY DEFAULT POLICY, it is almost safe to say that it is locked on AT&T USA Mobile Network.
Why US GSM COUNTRY DEFAULT POLICY and not AT&T USA?
This is exactly what we asked ourselves, but we figured out that when US GSM COUNTRY DEFAULT POLICY appears, it means that the iPhone is not activated yet.
When it gets activated, it will get locked to AT&T USA!
Now that you know what US GSM COUNTRY DEFAULT POLICY means, you can proceed with no doubts with any of the following:
- IMEI Network Check (If you want to identify the Network that blocks your iPhone)
- IMEI Blacklist Status Check (You must know if your iPhone is blacklisted or not!)
