Having your mobile phone IMEI blacklisted is probably one of the most frustrating situations you might face. We are aware this is a security feature that many carriers around the world implemented as a way to discourage the reselling of stolen devices or phones that didn’t get fully pay by the customer. However, there are some cases where by mistake users or carriers lock their devices and becomes a nightmare to unlock them.
How does this blacklist work?
The IMEI blacklist works by generating a report on your device based on the IMEI number it contains. The IMEI (International mobile equipment identity) is an unique number that is exclusively made your device. This way carriers and authorities are able to get a device blacklisted if it gets reported stolen or lost.
It is important to know that this is not the only reason why you might end up with a blacklisted phone. If you own money or the previous other has unpaid bills with the carrier, the device might get blocked by your wireless carrier without being your fault.
Can both Android and iPhone Devices be Blacklisted?
The brand of your mobile phone doesn’t really have anything to do with blacklist reports because anyway, all mobile devices have an IMEI number. This means that blacklist reports can be put into Android and iOS devices, in fact, regardless of your phone’s operating system, manufacturer, and model, its identification number can be reported on the blacklist database.
Possible Reasons why you can end up with a Blacklisted Device
If your IMEI is blacklisted is probably because the phone was reported as lost or stolen, but as we mentioned before, that’s not the only reason why a phone can be blacklisted by the carrier. Other causes of blacklisting can also be:
- The phone appears to be unpaid.
- The owner of the phone is not in good standing with the carrier.
- The phone is associated with illegal activity.
- The phone is associated with any kind of fraud.

If you want to be sure about the status of your IMEI, we would recommend to go directly to your network provider and ask for the status of such device if it belongs to the network.
Why is Finding your IMEI Number so Important for the Blacklist Removal Process?
Finding the IMEI to unlock your iPhone or Android device without an online tool is a key part of the process. As we mentioned before, the IMEI number is unique to every phone and is the code that appears on every blacklist report, and as that number appears on the record, we need to remove it from the blacklist for the lock on your device to be removed.
Actually, all IMEI blacklist removals (free or paid) are the same, even if you unlock your phone with your carrier or with an external service, you’ll always need to enter your IMEI as that’s the code that was reported.
Can you unlock a blacklisted phone?

It all comes down to your specific case but we will provide two methods that will likely solve this issue. Make sure to read the full length of this article to device which methods better suits your needs.
Ask your carrier for an unlock
If you device was blacklisted by your carrier, there is a big chance they are able to revoke this status if you show proof of ownership or you pay any outstanding bills. The following method applies for most carriers around the world. However, we will only talk about the major ones we have already tested, these are:
To get your device’s IMEI removed from the blacklist, you will need the following requirements regardless of your situation:
Proof of ID (Must show full name and date of birth)
Receipt (Digital is also accepted)
If you have these documents and your device is shown as reported lost or stolen, you have all the right to unlock it if you proof that you are the original owner, this process might take up to a day but you will be able to use your device without any issues.
On the case your phone was locked for owing money to the carrier, you will need to pay the full amount and then request the unlocking of your device. This process might take a little longer as payment processes might take some time.

Is bad IMEI the same as blacklisted?
These terms are often confused, having a bad IMEI or being blacklisted is the same thing. All blacklisted IMEI numbers are basically bad IMEI. This is not to be confused with the carrier lock or iCloud activation lock, these issues are completely separate and need another method to be fixed.

Is a Device’s IMEI Number the same as its ESN Number?
Even though our bad IMEI and bad ESN removal processes work the same and can be successfully completed, the ESN and IMEI of a phone are not the same. The ESN (Electronic Serial Number) is an identifier that phones have to be recognized on the CDMA network while the IMEI number has that same purpose but for the GSM network.
Anyway, most phones have both codes as newer phone models are compatible with both CDMA and GSM networks. In fact, the IMEI has become more popular because that was the identification code adopted by LTE technologies which is the network that most carriers use nowadays.

What happens to a blacklisted IMEI?
When a phone is blacklisted, it gets added to a global list that is shared among many carriers around the world. This list allows mobile providers to prevent the usage of any device that has been previously placed on this database automatically. It is important to use an IMEI checker before the purchase of any secondhand device to know if it has been reported as lost or has any issues.
Why did my phone randomly get blacklisted?
The IMEI database is managed by carriers, and most of these blocks are manual as users call to report their device, there are rare occasions where customer support employees simply block your device by mistake. If this is your case, do not worry, contacting your wireless network and explaining what happened will be enough for them to get it off the blacklist.
Has your network blacklisted your phone?
To check if the phone has been blacklisted by your network, you need to either go in person to a store branch or call the customer support line. Your account and device can get blacklisted for misusage of the network as well as for having an unpaid balance under your account. If your phone gets blacklisted, you won’t be able to use any SIM as this is a way to prevent bad customers from accessing other networks.
Can you use a phone that has been blacklisted?
Depends, once your phone gets blacklisted It will be unable to connect to the network of your provider and most likely to any network of your country of origin. This is not true in all cases as carriers are free to compile with this list or not, this means that there is a chance that your phone might work under a different network.
How long does this IMEI cleaning service takes?
It might vary, on average the common users spends around 20 minutes completing the process, and 2-3 hours until getting a positive result. This will always depend on how long it takes you to complete the process and how complicated it is for the cloud service to submit and send a positive result back to you.

If you want to check the status you can do so by using multiple methods:
- Check the box of your device (By law it must be displayed there)
- Find it on the back of your device (Old iPhone models and some Android models)
- Eject the sim card tray of your device (It is highly likely that it is there on newer models)
- Dial *#06# (this activates an USSD codes and it works on all devices)
